PEORIA, ARIZ. (AP) - Chris Young figures the Arizona Diamondbacks can have a powerful offense all season.

Young and Miguel Montero each hit a three-run homers, Ryan Roberts added a solo shot and Arizona rallied from five runs down to beat the San Diego Padres 12-7 on Sunday and snap a four-game losing streak.

Arizona right-hander Dan Haren gave up two homers and five runs in the first two innings but settled down from there. He lasted five innings, his longest outing of the spring.

Jody Gerut and Edgar Gonzalez homered for San Diego.

Hitters from both teams benefited from the blustery conditions. Gonzalez had to pause after rounding second base until an umpire signaled his two-run homer off Haren had cleared the fence. Gerut’s homer also appeared wind-blown.
