Boston, MA (Sports Network) - Allen Webster pitched six solid innings to earn his first career major league victory as the Boston Red Sox completed a three- game series sweep of the San Diego Padres with a 8-2 victory.
Webster (1-2) allowed two runs on five hits and four walks. The 23-year-old right-hander was one of five players traded from the Los Angeles Dodgers to the Red Sox last August in exchange for Adrian Gonzalez, Josh Beckett, Carl Crawford, Nick Punto and cash last season.
Dustin Pedroia and David Ortiz had two RBI apiece while Brandon Snyder and Jacoby Ellsbury hit solo home runs for the Red Sox, who have won eight of their last nine games.
Chase Headley and Jesus Guzman each drove in one run for the Padres, who are on a six-game losing streak. Starter Eric Stults (6-7) lasted just 4 1/3 innings, surrendering four runs on nine hits.
