The Padres are streaking.

And individual Padres are streaking.

Striking early against Castle Park High grad Alex Sanabia, the Padres defeated the Maimi Marlins 5-1 before 16,263 at Petco Park Tuesday night.

The win was the third straight for the Padres, their 10th in the last 13 games and their eighth in the last nine games at Petco Park.

Eric Stults allowed one run on seven hits over 6 1/3 innings and Will Venable hit his second homer in three games as the Padres climbed over .500 at home for the first time this season.

“Stultsy did his thing, mixing pitches and speeds,” said Padres manager Bud Black. “Any momentum they had, Stultsy stopped it. And we played great defense.”

“I felt good,” said Stults. “I tried to use the Marlins aggressiveness to keep them off balance. We had a good game plan and it worked out. I can’t say enough about our defense. As a pitcher, knowing the guys behind you are making plays, it’s huge.”

Meanwhile, both Chase Headley and Jedd Gyorko extended hitting streaks to 12 games.

Headley went 2-for-4 to extend his hitting streak to 12 straight games, equaling the second-longest streak of his career. Headley, who had a 16-game hitting streak in 2011, is hitting .391 (18-for-46) during this streak.

And Gyorko hit in his 12th straight game at Petco Park, his second-inning single coming in front of Venable’s two-run homer that put the Padres ahead 3-0. Gyroko’s streak is tied for the third-longest hitting streak by a Padre at Petco Park.

Venable drove in three of the Padres five runs.

After Stults departed in the seventh, relievers Dale Thayer, Luke Gregerson (his eighth straight scoreless appearance) and Anthony Bass retired all eight Marlins they faced.

Over the first two games of the series, Padres pitchers have held the Marlins to one run on 12 hits and five walks in 18 innings. Three of Miami’s 17 baserunners were erased on double plays and another was thrown out trying to steal.

Starter Andrew Cashner and Thayer combined on a five-hit shutout Monday night.

“I think this is a good sign of hopefully where the pitching is headed,” said Black. “The consistency of the starting pitching is starting to build a little momentum.”
