SAN DIEGO (AP) — The Arizona Diamondbacks are making themselves right at home at Petco Park.Paul Goldschmidt hit a two-run home run Frank White Jersey , Steven Souza Jr. drove in three and the Arizona Diamondbacks beat the San Diego Padres 9-4 on Friday night.Goldschmidt drove the first pitch he saw from left-hander Joey Lucchesi out to left-center field for his 28th of the season. That got Arizona going en route to its sixth straight win over San Diego at Petco Park.“I thought it was a really good job by our guys to attack the starting pitcher,” Diamondbacks manager Torey Lovullo said. “Goldie with the big two-run homerun got us that lead, and we kept adding on.”Souza doubled into the right-center gap with the bases loaded to bring home three runs in the sixth and extend the lead to 8-3.Robbie Ray started for Arizona and walked his first two batters. While Ray held San Diego to two hits, both by Eric Hosmer, he allowed three runs over 4 2/3 innings. Ray walked five and struck out three.“It was all self-inflicted,” Ray said. “I walked too many guys and they ended up scoring. In crucial situations like that, I’m trying to get a call. It’s tough. They got two hits tonight, but it was on me.”Hosmer homered in the fifth on a ball that just cleared the left field fence beyond Jon Jay’s glove. Arizona challenged the call as it appeared a fan interfered with Jay while spilling a beer http://www.royalsfanproshop.com/authentic-joakim-soria-jersey , but the call was upheld after replay review.“I thought I had a beat on it, and I thought he moved my hand when I was right there,” Jay said. “I got a little beer on my side — I didn’t get any in my mouth.”Manuel Margot hit a ball to nearly the same spot in the eighth and Jay made another leaping attempt, but a fan caught the ball above Jay’s glove for a solo homer that cut the lead to 9-4.Eduardo Escobar added a solo home run in the eighth against Jose Castillo.“You look at command, their guy walked five guys, our guy walked three guys,” Padres manager Andy Green said. “Their guy skated by with no more command today and got off the hook. We took our walks early. They made us pay.”Lucchesi (6-7) allowed five runs and nine hits over four innings. He struck out six and walked three.“I think the biggest mistake I had was leaving all my pitches over the plate, and they took advantage of it Kelvin Herrera Jersey ,” Lucchesi said. “I wasn’t as sharp. I’ve got to do better than that.”San Diego, which has the worst record in the National League at 48-77, has dropped five straight.YOU’RE OUTTA HEREDiamondbacks shortstop Nick Ahmed was ejected in the third by home plate umpire James Hoye after striking out looking. Daniel Descalsco replaced Ahmed in the lineup. It was Ahmed’s second career ejection.TRAINER’S ROOMPadres: LHP Eric Lauer made a rehab start at Class A Lake Elsinore on Friday night. Lauer has been sidelined since July 31 with a left forearm strain.UP NEXTDiamondbacks: RHP Zack Godley (13-6, 4.20) takes the mound in the third game of the series. Godley is 4-0 in his last eight starts.Padres: LHP Clayton Richard gets the call and looks to continue a stretch of pitching five innings or more in his last four starts. Aaron Nola will make his final start of the 2018 season on Saturday night in Philadelphia against the Atlanta Braves.The 25-year-old will try to end the best season of his major league career on a high note –and there haven’t been many for the Philadelphia Phillies in recent weeks.Nola (16-6, 2.45 ERA) will face Anibal Sanchez (7-6, 2.96) on the penultimate day of the 2018 regular season.Article continues below ...The division champion Braves are 90-70 after winning the series opener Friday night, and they are fighting for home-field advantage in a National League Division Series.The Phillies (78-82), meanwhile http://www.royalsfanproshop.com/authentic-alcides-escobar-jersey , are 6-20 in September and on a season-worst nine-game losing streak. Their latest loss assured the Phillies — who were in first place in the NL East and 15 games above .500 on Aug. 5 — will finish the season below .500.Nola has struggled a bit in September as well. He has a 4.60 ERA in five starts this month, and nine of the 17 homers he has allowed this season have come during that span. The Phillies have won 21 of Nola’s 32 starts this season, but they are 2-4 in his last six.Nola faced the Braves in a 2-1 Phillies loss to Atlanta last Sunday. He gave up two runs and four hits and struck out six in six innings.“It’s frustrating at times, but I think it’s a learning process for us,” Nola told MLB.com after the start about the Phillies’ late-season slide. “I think it’s a big step this year from last year. We had a month last year. I remember we had a month when I feel like we lost every day. But I feel like each year we’re learning more, especially bringing in a lot of new guys this year.“We’re learning more about each other. I just think that’s what baseball is. We’ve just got to stay focused from here on out and try to finish the year strong.”Nola’s 2.45 ERA still ranks second in the NL, and he’ll likely finish in the top three of the league’s Cy Young Award voting.Nola has a 2.96 ERA and a 1-2 record in four starts against the Braves this season. He is 6-3 with a 2.30 ERA and 1.038 WHIP in 11 starts against Atlanta in his career.Sanchez faced Nola and the Phillies last Sunday, allowing one run while throwing five strong innings in his seventh win of the season. Sanchez Jason Hammel Jersey , a veteran right-hander, is set to be part of the Braves’ rotation in the NLDS. He has allowed one earned run or fewer in six of his last 10 starts. “(Sanchez) has just been huge,” Braves manager Brian Snitker told reporters after Sanchez’s last start. “What a great story that is. You hear in baseball about trending down and all that kind of stuff. As far as a complete pitcher and just knowing what you’re doing and executing pitches, he’s pretty good.”Sanchez is 5-9 with a 4.76 ERA and 1.481 WHIP in 19 career starts against the Phillies. His appearance against the Phillies on Sunday was his only start against Philadelphia this season.
