Tucson's Cody Decker hit a bases-loaded triple to center field in the ninth inning to spark a four-run rally Sunday and lead the Padres to an 8-5 victory over the host Nashville Sounds.

Decker, who went 2 for 4 with three RBIs, scored the fourth run on Chris Robinson's bunt-single to third.

Relievers Brad Boxberger and Miles Mikolas (4-1) each threw two shutout innings after starter Anthony Bass was rocked in the fifth inning for three runs that gave Nashville a 5-4 edge.

The Padres scored three runs in the fourth inning on three doubles, one by Decker, and a single to take a 4-2 lead.

Dean Anna and Jaff Decker led the Tucson offense with three hits apiece. Anna went 3 for 4, drove in a run and scored once, while Jaff Decker was 3 for 5 with an RBI and two runs.

The victory broke a three-game losing streak for the Padres, who remain two games out of first place in the Pacific Southern Division.
