Starter Yovani Gallardo (2-1) allowed three runs on eight hits and five walks over 6 2/3 innings. Jim Henderson pitched a scoreless ninth to pick up his fifth save. Clayton Richard (0-2) lasted just 1 2/3 innings, surrendering six runs on six hits and two walks for the Padres, who had Carlos Quentin return from an eight-game suspension for charging the mound and starting a benches-clearing brawl after being hit by a pitch by the Dodgers' Zack Greinke on April 11. Quentin, Yonder Alonso and Will Venable each had an RBI for the Padres in defeat, their seventh straight loss at home. The series wraps up tonight with coverage on WHBL beginning at 8:35.
