Diamondbacks 3, Padres 1

Josh Collmenter followed up the solid performance from Brandon McCarthy last night with one of his own on Saturday against the Padres for the Diamondbacks' second win in a row.

For what it's worth, with the win tonight, the D-backs are no longer in sole position of last place in the division. Whether that means anything or not, it's a small victory in a season that hasn't been as exciting as one may have thought at the beginning of the year.

Although it was a brief outing for Josh Collmenter, he did what he had to do tonight against an inferior -- at least on paper -- Padres offense. The Tomahawk went 5 1/3 innings with only one earned run and handed it over to the D-backs bullpen, which shut down the San Diego bats for the remainder of the game.

Martin Prado had a sacrifice fly in the third, but Miguel Montero led the charge for the Diamondbacks offense with a two-run home run in the sixth off of Eric Stultz for the go-ahead lead.

And for the second straight game, Addison Reed recorded a save without giving up a run, hallelujah.
