(Newser) – Conor Jackson matched a career high with four hits, including two triples and a home run, and Arizona routed the weary San Diego Padres 9-0 on Friday. After losing a 22-inning game to Colorado and arriving in Phoenix at about 4 a.m. Friday, the Padres fell behind 6-0 in the first inning and offered little resistance to Arizona starter Dan Haren.

Arizona extended its dominance of San Diego's Greg Maddux (2-1), who allowed nine runs and 13 hits, one shy of his career highs in both categories. He pitched seven innings, walking three and striking out four. The 349-game winner is 2-11 with a 5.29 ERA against Arizona, and that doesn't include two losses in the 2001 NL championship series.
