SAN DIEGO (AP) — Jesus Guzman and Orlando Hudson each hit three-run homers, and rookie Corey Luebke pitched seven strong innings to help the San Diego Padres snap a season-high seven-game losing streak with an 11-3 win over the San Francisco Giants on Saturday night.

Guzman had a career-high four RBIs for the NL’s worst offensive team.

San Diego, which has scored the fewest runs in the NL and has the league’s lowest batting average, scored its most runs since an 11-2 win against Atlanta on June 24.

Guzman connected off Barry Zito (3-2) in the first inning and Hudson hit his long ball off the lefty in the third inning to give San Diego a 7-0 lead.
