SAN DIEGO (AP) — Kevin Correia scattered three runs and four hits over six innings and the Minnesota Twins defeated the San Diego Padres 5-3 on Tuesday night.

Correia (2-5), a San Diego native, struck out six and walked a batter in winning for only the second time in his last six starts. Glen Perkins pitched the ninth for his 13th save in 15 chances.

Ian Kennedy (2-6) worked into the seventh for San Diego, giving up four runs as he lost for the seventh time in eight starts against American League teams.

It was the second of Kennedy's two wild pitches which helped the Twins score the go-ahead run in the seventh. His first wild pitch in the sixth let the Twins tie the game.
