The win, Miami's fourth straight, came only after the Marlins blew a 5-0 first-inning lead and an 8-7 ninth-inning lead. The visitors jumped on top on home runs by Hanley Ramirez and Giancarol Stanton, but the Padres answered with a six-run third inning that included a bases-clearing triple by Padres starter Anthony Bass.
The Marlins scored two runs in the seventh-inning to take an 8-7 lead, but the Padres responded in the bottom of the ninth as Jesus Guzman scored on Cameron Maybin's double.
Steve Cishek pitched three scoreless innings to earn the win in relief, while Josh Spence took the loss for the Padres.
