SAN DIEGO - Rookie Jesse Hahn gave himself a nice present on his 25th birthday and his teammates gave him far more run support than he needed. Michael Bennett Jersey . Hahn held St. Louis to one run and four hits in seven innings and Jedd Gyorko and Will Venable each homered and drove in four runs to lead the San Diego Padres to a 12-1 victory Wednesday night. Yangervis Solarte, obtained from the New York Yankees in the trade for Chase Headley, had four hits and the Padres tied their season high with 16. The Padres fell one run shy of their season high. "To get a win on your birthday is awesome," Hahn said. His seven wins in nine appearances are the most in Padres history and tied for the third-most by a big league pitcher since 1914. "We havent had it enough," manager Bud Black said of the scoring outburst. "But its great to see. It starts with starting pitching, and Jesse pitched a great game. Hes not a secret, even though hes facing teams for the first time. Theres video, theres scouting reports. Hes being talked about because hes made a number of starts and his innings are getting up there a little bit." Hahns latest impressive start put the Padres, buried in third place in the NL West, in position to sweep the series with a win Thursday. The Cardinals are in the race for the NL Central crown a season after going to the World Series. "It was probably our ugliest loss of the year. Thats the best way to describe it," Cardinals manager Mike Matheny said. Hahn (7-2) struck out three and walked two in winning his third straight start. The lanky righty retired the first seven batters before Tony Cruz beat out an infield single. Hahn was acquired in a seven-player trade with Tampa Bay on Jan. 22. Hahn took a shutout into the seventh before allowing a one-out RBI single by Peter Bourjos singled in Matt Adams. "I was a little mad but at that point I was going for the double play to get out of the inning," Hahn said. "It was a good pitch; unfortunately the runner scored. Venable hit a 379-foot, three-run homer to right to cap the eight-run seventh. It was his fourth. The Padres had five hits, three walks and a hit batter off three relievers in the inning. Gyorko hit a three-run double, his third hit. Gyorko, who returned Monday from a 44-game stay on the disabled list with plantar fasciitis, homered to left on a 1-0 pitch from Joe Kelly with one out in the fourth to give San Diego a 3-0 lead. It was his sixth. Yonder Alonso followed with a triple and came in on Venables single. "It obviously feels good to swing the bat the way I wanted to," said Gyorko, who has struggled since the Padres gave him a $35 million, six-year contract extension on April 14, based on his strong rookie season. "It feels a lot like how I was swinging it there at the end of the year last year. Its something to build on but I still have a long way to go." Alexi Amarista had three hits and scored three runs, and Solarte also had three hits. Kelly (2-2) went five innings, allowing four runs and seven hits while striking out five and walking one. "Kelly was OK," Matheny said. "It looked like good pitches were getting hit hard. It should have worked out a little better for him." Overall, "Thats not the kind of baseball weve played all year," Matheny said. No excuses. We were terrible." TRAINERS ROOM Cardinals: Manager Mike Matheny said the sound of pinch-hitter Daniel Descalso getting hit on the knee by a pitch from Joaquin Benoit in the ninth inning Tuesday night was "as loud as a hit batsman as Ive heard. It sounded terrible. But I was happy to see him get up, walk around." Descalso was replaced by a pinch-runner. Padres: RHP Andrew Cashner threw another bullpen Wednesday and is scheduled to throw a simulated game during the weekend. He could begin a rehab assignment next week. Hes on the disabled list with soreness in his right shoulder. ON DECK Cardinals: Shelby Miller (7-8, 4.20) is 0-1 with a 5.19 ERA in one career start and two appearances against San Diego, both at Petco Park Padres: Odrisamer Despaigne (2-2, 1.66) tries to bounce back from rocky start in 5-3 loss to Atlanta, when he lasted only 3 2-3 innings. RBI MACHINE Solarte has eight RBIs since joining the Padres on July 23 and has knocked in at least one run in seven of eight games. TRADE The Cardinals acquired RHP Justin Masterson from Cleveland for minor league OF James Ramsey. Masterson is scheduled to start Saturday against Milwaukee in St. Louis. Dallas Goedert Eagles Jersey . With timely hitting and good pitching, the Marlins are one win away from sweeping the slumping Houston Astros. Haloti Ngata Eagles Jersey . PETERSBURG, Fla. http://www.eaglesrookiestore.com/Eagles-Haloti-Ngata-Jersey/ . -- Manager Bob Melvin shuffled the Athletics batting order and got the type of production he was looking for from the top of the lineup. WASHINGTON -- Toronto FC coach Ryan Nelsen could probably provide a slew of reasons for his teams recent slide. But after TFCs 3-0 loss to D.C. United on Wednesday, he boiled it down to a simple explanation. "We had the opportunities to score goals. We didnt take them," Nelsen said. "Then when he had to defend our box, we didnt defend it very well." Toronto outshot United 14-10 at RFK Stadium, but Nelsens squad couldnt pull off the win. They dropped to 1-3-4 since the World Cup break. Eddie Johnson found the net in his third straight match to open the scoring for United (11-5-4), which then got a Chris Rolfe tally and Nick Hagglund own goal after halftime to extend its winning streak to four games. Toronto (7-7-5) played without starting defenders Steven Caldwell (quad tear), Mark Bloom (MCL strain) and Doneil Henry (suspension). Warren Creavalle, acquired in a trade with Houston last week, made his TFC debut filling in for Bloom at right back. It was the visitors who carved the games first chance, with Michael Bradley slipping in Dominic Oduro. In alone on goal, the winger buzzed his shot wide of the far post. Toronto paid for the miss a minute later. As United midfielder Perry Kitchen lobbed in a cross from the right flank, Johnson got away from Creavalle, rose and buried his point-blank header. "Goals change games," Nelsen said. "I think if he got that first one, with the chances we had, it wouldve been a whole different game." Toronto nearly tied the match in the 42nd minute when Bradley again set up Oduro, but D.C. goalkeeper Bill Hamid charged out to stifle the shot. While United found the back of the net moments beforee halftime, Bobby Boswell saw the headed goal disallowed because of a foul. Avonte Maddox Eagles Jersey. Hamid again came up big moments into the second half, denying Luke Moores chip after the striker connected with a clever through ball from Jermain Defoe. United made it a two-goal lead in the 59th minute. Even though Creavalle took down Nick DeLeon for what would have been a penalty kick, referee Chris Penso let play continue as the ball fell to Rolfe. One-on-one with the goalkeeper, Rolfe sent Joe Bendik leaning the wrong way and converted a simple finish. "We created chances we werent able to finish, and in our box we werent able to stop them," Creavalle said. "At both ends we just have to be a little bit tougher." Eight minutes later, a stunning individual effort by DeLeon made it 3-0. The winger deftly evaded challenges from Justin Morrow and Hagglund, then saw his shot deflected into the air by Bendik and inadvertently nodded in by Hagglund. The goal iced Torontos second straight loss, and fourth straight match without a victory. "We werent ruthless enough, we werent hard enough," Nelsen said. "We didnt deserve to win any football game." Toronto continues its four-game road trip Saturday against the Montreal Impact (3-12-5). As Nelsen said post-game, its "definitely" beneficial for his side to quickly put the result in the past and turn its attention to that next match. Added Bradley: "Its important that we now find a way to mentally stay strong, find the right way to challenge ourselves and to look hard at ourselves but still know there are a lot of games left and the big stuff is still to come."
