Padres 18, Marlins 2

The Associated Press

        SAN DIEGO — After a rough first half, Bubba Trammell has bounced back in a big way. Trammell continued his second-half resurgence, hitting two home runs and keying a nine-run fifth inning, leading the San Diego Padres to an 18-2 win over the Florida Marlins on Friday night.

        Trammell has had a disappointing season after a career year in 2001. But against the Marlins, he looked like the Trammell of a season ago, going 4-for-5 with four RBIs and four runs scored.

        “Right now, I get in the box and I know I have a chance,” Trammell said. “I want to swing like this the rest of the year and show them what the real Bubba Trammell can do.”

        Trammell hit a two-run homer in the second inning off Carl Pavano (3-10) and a solo shot to start the scoring in the fifth against reliever Vic Darensbourg.

        Trammell added an RBI single in the inning and Ramon Vazquez also drove in two runs. Seven players drove in runs in the frame, including two that came on bases-loaded walks, and everyone but Ryan Klesko scored.

        In an odd twist, the final 11 batters in the inning came to bat with the bases loaded.

        San Diego, which had 18 hits, set season highs for runs and hits.

        “It seemed like a couple of innings, everything we hit was in the hole,” Padres manager Bruce Bochy said. “We had the ball bounce our way.”

        Jake Peavy (5-5) allowed two runs on seven hits in seven innings. The rookie set a career high with eight strikeouts and did not walk a batter.

        “Any time your team scores that many runs, it makes your job easier,” said Peavy, who had a bunt single and scored two runs. “The thing I was most worried about was getting loose after the (fifth) inning.”

        Trammell has bounced back from the first half of the season when he hit .223 with six home runs and 26 RBIs. Since the All-Star break, Trammell is hitting .294 with eight homers and 24 RBIs.

        “He was beating himself up there for a while,” Bochy said. “He's found his swing and he's gotten his confidence up.”

        The Padres had their highest-scoring game since May 19, 2001, when they beat Montreal 20-7. The Marlins allowed their most runs since losing 20-3 to Atlanta on Oct. 5, 2001.

        Every San Diego batter had at least one hit and one run scored.

        Pavano allowed eight runs — three earned — and six hits in 3 1-3 innings. Pavano was making his first start since for Florida since coming over from Montreal in a July 11 trade.

        Darensbourg, who relieved in the fourth, allowed the first six batters to reach base in the fifth and retired just one batter in the inning. Darensbourg issued bases-loaded walks to Vazquez and Ron Gant.

        Darensbourg gave up eight runs on six hits in one inning, raising his ERA from 4.56 to 5.96.

        Gene Kingsale, Phil Nevin, Deivi Cruz, Tom Lampkin and Vazquez all had RBI singles in the inning.

        The Marlins allowed five unearned runs on three errors, two coming on one play in the third inning that allowed three runs to score.

        ”(Errors) happen, it's part of the game,” Pavano said.

        Nevin drove in the first run of the third inning with a single after a one-out single by Kingsale and a walk to Klesko. One out later, Trammell hit a hard grounder to third baseman Mike Lowell.

        The ball went under Lowell's glove for an error. When Kevin Millar allowed the ball to get by him in left field, Nevin scored and Trammell also came home when the relay throw got away from catcher Charles Johnson.

        “I'm sure there were a lot of words we can find to describe the game,” Florida manager Jeff Torborg said. “Ugly was one if you are a Marlins fan.”
        Notes: The Padres' 10 hits in the fifth inning set a new club record, exceeding the previous mark by one. San Diego's highest scoring inning was 13 runs on May 31, 1994, against Pittsburgh, and on Aug. 24, 1993, to St. Louis. ... San Diego also set a club record for most runs scored at home, breaking the record of 17, achieved twice. The last time was in a 17-4 win over St. Louis on Aug. 24, 1993. ... The Marlins gave up their most runs in an inning since allowing 10 to the Braves in the first inning of last year's 20-3 loss. ... Former Padre Eric Owens received a warm ovation when he batted in the eighth inning.
