Brandon Allen hit a two-run homer in the ninth inning to lead the Tucson Padres to a 4-2 come-from-behind victory Wednesday over the host Memphis Redbirds.

Allen hit his 11th home run of the year off reliever Fernando Salas who walked leadoff batter Ben Francisco.

Tucson tied the game at 2 in the eighth when Cody Decker, who had doubled, scored on Daniel Robertson's single.

The Padres started their comeback in the sixth when leadoff hitter Cameron Maybin homered to center field and ended a 15-inning scoreless streak.

Reliever Kevin Quackenbush (6-1) pitched scoreless ball over the final two innings, striking out two and giving up one hit. Starter Robbie Erlin scattered six hits and allowed two runs in six innings.

Maybin, who was making an injury rehab appearance for the Padres, was 1 for 2 with his fourth homer of the year.

Tucson finished July with a 14-14 record.
