Eugenio Suárez celebrates after hitting a home run in the 7th inning

Eugenio Suárez hit a two-run homer in the seventh inning and a double that cleared the bases in the ninth, leading the Arizona Diamondbacks to a 9-1 win over the San Diego Padres on Sunday.

Arizona reached a .500 record at 45-45 with this victory, taking the final two games of the series after losing the opener. They finished their road trip with a 4-2 record, bouncing back from an initial loss in Los Angeles before winning the last two games there as well.

Suárez matched his career best with five RBIs and collected three hits in the game. The veteran, who was acquired from Seattle last November, entered Sunday batting just .203.

Manager Torey Lovullo commented on the series, saying, “Both teams were a bit drained emotionally after two intense games. Those weren’t easy games. They were taxing emotionally. Today, the team played really solid baseball.”

Lovullo added, “We stayed competitive early on and then delivered some key hits. The home run was clearly pivotal. Geno had an outstanding day. Those were critical hits, and he’s been working hard to seize those opportunities.”

Corbin Carroll started the game with a leadoff home run for the Diamondbacks, who have either won or split nine of their last eleven series.

Ryne Nelson (6-6) and three relief pitchers combined to limit the Padres to just four hits.

In the seventh inning, with Geraldo Perdomo on base after an eight-pitch walk, Suárez connected on a 1-1 pitch from Dylan Cease (7-8) and sent it over the left field fence for his seventh home run of the season. Perdomo also contributed earlier in the game with an 11-pitch at-bat that ultimately ended in a strikeout for Cease in the fourth inning.
