Goldschmidt, Owings homer, D-Backs beat Padres 5-3

PHOENIX (AP) - Paul Goldschmidt and Chris Owings each hit a two-run home run and the Arizona Diamondbacks opened their final series of a disappointing season with a 5-3 victory over the San Diego Padres on Friday night.

Ryan Schimpf hit a two-run home run for San Diego.

Randall Delgado (5-2) pitched an inning of relief to get the victory. Patrick Corbin threw 2 2/3 innings of scoreless relief before Daniel Hudson came on to get Wil Myers to pop out to first for his fifth save.

Edwin Jackson (5-7) gave up five runs and seven hits in five innings to take the loss.

The crowd for the matchup between the bottom two teams in the NL West was announced at 42,651, the second-largest of the season at home for the Diamondbacks. Only the season opener drew more.
