Message back ahead 4-2 in the fifth. 
Padres manager Andy Green is trying not to get too excited about San Diego’s run of success. His players seem to be enjoying it Amari Cooper Jersey , though. Eric Lauer carried a shutout into the sixth inning, Manuel Margot had three hits and the Padres beat the St. Louis Cardinals 4-2 on Wednesday night to win their fifth straight series.
San Diego has won 11 of 15 games, including five of its last seven. It’s the first time the Padres have won five consecutive series since 2010.
”It means we’re playing good baseball and that’s the most important thing,” said shortstop Freddy Galvis, who sparked the attack with a two-run double in the first inning.
Marcell Ozuna homered for the Cardinals, who have lost three of four.
Green warned his players about staying on an even keel heading into a four-game series in Atlanta.
”I don’t want to make too much out of the streak,” Green said. ”Over the course of a season, every team has some hot streaks and cold streaks. You can’t get caught up in those moments. It doesn’t serve the purpose.”
The Padres took two of three in a stadium where they had struggled. St. Louis had won 30 of its previous 42 home games against San Diego.
Lauer (3-4) gave up two runs and eight hits over 5 2/3 innings. He’s 3-0 when getting two or more runs of support.
”I felt a lot more comfortable out on the mound as far as not pressing,” Lauer said. ”I think I did a good job. I was out there just throwing my game.”
Lauer gave up six runs to St. Louis on seven hits during a 9-5 loss on May 11. The Cardinals hit four homers off him in a short 2 1/3 inning stint.
”I pretty much had the same game plan, I wanted to attack hitters Patrick DiMarco Jersey ,” Lauer said.
Brad Hand recorded his 21st save in 23 opportunities. He got Jedd Gyorko to ground into a double play after hitting Yadier Molina to start the ninth.
San Diego reliever Jose Castillo struck out all four batters he faced. The Padres pitching staff did not walk a batter in the three-game series.
St. Louis starter Luke Weaver (3-6) gave up four runs and nine hits over 5 1/3 innings. He has just one win over his last 11 starts.
”I didn’t think it was a terrible start,” Weaver said. ”They just capitalized on the moments they needed to. I’ve just got to go back to the drawing board.”
Margot, who singled in the second and fourth, stretched the lead to 3-0 with a run-scoring triple in the sixth. Raffy Lopez followed with a broken-bat single off reliever Austin Gomber for a 4-0 lead.
Margot has hit safely in his last six games, going 9 for 20. He had two hits in a 4-2 win Tuesday.
Ozuna, who leads the team with 21 multihit games, has hit safely in 11 of his last 12.
St. Louis came into the series having won three of four.
”Sometimes we do our best with a real good team and sometimes – well I don’t know,” Ozuna said. ”It’s baseball and in baseball anything happens.”
SHARP DEFENSE
The Cardinals have not allowed an error in their last six games. It is their longest errorless stretch since Aug. 3-8 last season.
TRAINER’S ROOM
Padres: C Austin Hedges began a rehab assignment with Class A Lake Elsinore on Tuesday. He went 1 for 2. Hedges was placed on the DL on May 1 with right elbow tendonitis. He has missed 38 games.
Cardinals: INF Jose Martinez will be out on paternity leave for the upcoming weekend series against the Chicago Cubs.
UP NEXT:
Padres: RHP Tyson Ross (5-3, 3.43) will open a four-game series at Atlanta against RHP Anibal Sanchez (2-0, 2.37) on Thursday. The Padres are in 10-3 when Tyson starts and have won the last six.
Cardinals: RHP Michael Wacha (8-1 Aaron Rodgers Jersey , 2.47) face LHP Jon Lester (7-2, 2.22) in the first of a three-game home series against the Chicago Cubs on Friday. Wacha has won his last eight decisions against the Cubs.

Once the Chicago White Sox got started, Yolmer Sanchez wouldn’t be stopped.
Sanchez matched a career high with four RBIs, Avisail Garcia hit his first homer since returning from the disabled list last week and the White Sox came back to beat the Minnesota Twins 8-4 on Tuesday night.
Yoan Moncada drove in a run with a triple and scored as the White Sox won for the third time in four games following an eight-game losing streak. Reynaldo Lopez (3-5) lasted 6 1/3 innings for the win in a contest that began after a delay of 1 hour, 48 minutes because of heavy rain.
Sanchez is hitting .258 on the season, but is 17 for 55 with runners in scoring position. He drove in three runs on a pair bases-loaded singles and a fourth with a groundout.
”I feel good with runners in scoring position,” Sanchez said. ”I don’t try to do too much, I try to put the ball in play and put a good swing (on the ball).”
Lopez yielded four runs and six hits before four Chicago relievers combined for 2 2/3 hitless innings. The 24-year-old right-hander rebounded from a lopsided loss at Cleveland last week when he allowed the first five of the Indians’ 12 runs.
”He ground out the innings that he gave us,” manager Rick Renteria said. ”He continued to show some calm out there.”
Ehire Adrianza hit a solo shot and drove in two runs, and Brian Dozier also went deep for Minnesota.
Minnesota’s Lance Lynn (5-6) seemed to be cruising with a 4-2 lead in a seventh straight solid start Kyle Van Noy Jersey , but slipped on the wet grass while fielding Matt Davidson’s soft grounder leading off the bottom of sixth. Leury Garcia singled off Lynn’s glove and Kevan Smith followed with another hit to load the bases, prompting manager Paul Molitor to bring in reliever Ryan Pressly.
”It was a weird inning,” Lynn said. ”I don’t know how to explain it. I should have made both plays.
”They capitalized when they had a chance. It was all on me.”
Pressly walked Tim Anderson to force in a run. Sanchez put the White Sox ahead for the first time when he lined a single off Taylor Rogers with two outs that drove in two.
Lynn allowed five runs (four earned) on eight hits through five-plus innings. The 31-year-old right-hander struck out eight and walked one.
Dozier’s 11th homer, on a towering fly that barely cleared the left-field fence, put the Twins ahead 1-0 in the second. Adrianza’s drive to straightaway center on the first pitch of the third made it 2-0.
The White Sox tied it at 2 in the bottom of the inning. Adam Engel reached on Adrianza’s throwing error, then scored on Moncada’s triple to the right-center wall. Moncada came home on Sanchez’s groundout.
Minnesota moved back ahead 4-2 in the fifth. Mitch Garver, Jake Cave and Adrianza opened the inning with sharp singles. Joe Mauer settled for a sac fly as Garcia made a nifty running grab of his liner to the warning track in right center.
After Chicago took a 5-4 lead in the sixth, Garcia hit his second homer of the season – and first since April 3 – in the seventh.
Sanchez singled in another run as the White Sox scored twice in the eighth.
SPECIAL K
Lynn recorded the 1,000th strikeout of his career when he fanned Jose Abreu in the fifth.
THEIR KIND OF TOWN
The Twins began a run of six straight games in Chicago. Their three-game series against the White Sox will be followed by a three-game set at Wrigley Field against the crosstown Cubs.
TWINS’ ROSTER MOVE
The Twins recalled Cave for the third time this season from Triple-A Rochester before Tuesday’s game and started him in right. He took the roster spot of Ryan LaMarre, who was sent down on Sunday.
TRAINER’S ROOM
Twins: Two-time All-Star RHP Ervin Santana (right middle finger surgery) is scheduled to begin a rehab assignment with Class A Fort Myers on Saturday after throwing 60 pitches of live batting practice on Monday. Santana’s recovery from Feb. 6 surgery has been slower than expected. The right-hander Tre'Quan Smith Jersey , 16-8 with a 3.28 ERA last season, made two rehab starts in May before being shut down.
White Sox: RHP Dylan Covey (right hip soreness), who was pulled with no outs in the fifth inning in his last start on Saturday against Oakland, said he felt fine after throwing a bullpen session on Tuesday. Manager Rick Renteria expects Covey to make his next scheduled start, on Friday at Texas. . Garcia collided with Moncada near the right-field line as Garcia caught Eddie Rosario’s pop in the first. Both players seemed stunned, but were checked and remained in the game.
UP NEXT
Twins RHP Kyle Gibson (2-5, 3.25) faces White Sox RHP James Shields (2-9) on Wednesday night.
