Mike Wilson did his job well as a cleanup hitter on Sunday, going 3 for 5 with two home runs and six RBIs to lead the Tucson Padres past host Reno 8-2.
It was the most RBIs for a Tucson player since Matt Clark had six last August.
Wilson, the Padres' left fielder, hit a three-run homer to left in the seventh inning, adding to his two-run shot in the first and an RBI double in the fifth. He has four homers on the year.
The Padres scored first for the first time in five games, thanks to Wilson's first blast of the game.
Dean Anna went 2 for 3 with an RBI to extend his hitting streak to 11 games. Leadoff hitter Jaff Decker and catcher Rene Rivera both went 2 for 4 for the Padres, who pounded out 13 hits off three Reno pitchers.
Tucson starter Burch Smith (3-1) allowed two runs on six hits, and struck out five with one walk to earn the win.
Tucson (40-37) trails leader Sacramento (42-35) by 2 in the Pacific Coast League South Division.
