Chacin throws gem to beat Diamondbacks 1-0

SAN DIEGO (AP) -

Jhoulys Chacin pitched eight scoreless innings and Erick Aybar hit a homer to lift the San Diego Padres to a 1-0 win over the Arizona Diamondbacks on Wednesday night.

Aybar, who had pitched to a batter the night before, pulled Zack Greinke's 82 mph slider just fair down the right-field line in the eighth inning for the game's lone run.

The first homer of the year from Aybar made a winner out Chacin (2-2). Chacin was masterful as he gave up just three hits. He walked two and struck out five.

Brandon Maurer worked the ninth inning for his second save as the Padres snapped a five-game losing streak.

A.J. Pollack singled in the ninth, stole second and reached third with two outs. But Jake Lamb struck out.

Grienke (1-2) and Chacin were locked in a duel over the first seven innings as neither team placed a runner in scoring position.
