Quilvio Veras, Tony Gwynn and Ken Caminiti each drove in two runs as the San Diego Padres defeated the St. Louis Cardinals, 8-2, on Sunday to conclude the first major league baseball series in Hawaii.
The Padres, who scored only one run in dropping a doubleheader to the Cardinals on Saturday, broke out of their offensive slump with 12 hits in the finale of the three-game series.
San Diego starter Andy Ashby (1-1) gave up seven hits and two runs in seven innings, including an inside-the-park home run by Ron Gant.
The Padres stole four bases, including two by Rickey Henderson, and got three hits from Wally Joyner.
San Diego took a 2-0 lead in the first on run-scoring groundouts by Gwynn and Caminiti. The Padres made it 3-0 in the third when Caminiti scored from third on a delayed double steal.
Cardinal first baseman Dmitri Young was a late scratch with a strained left hip.
