SAN DIEGO (AP) -- Rookie Odrisamer Despaigne won his second straight start and Cameron Maybin keyed a rare offensive outburst for the San Diego Padres, who beat the Arizona Diamondbacks 2-1 Sunday to pop out of their one-day stay in last place in the NL West.

The Padres scored their most runs in four games. Through 81 games, they had scored one or fewer runs 27 times. They swapped places with the Diamondbacks, who had leapfrogged the Padres into fourth place after winning 3-1 Saturday night.

Despaigne (2-0), a 27-year-old who defected from Cuba last summer, held Arizona to one run and five hits in 6 2-3 innings, walking four and striking out two.

In his big league debut last Monday, he held San Francisco to four hits in seven shutout innings, striking out one and walking none in a 1-0 win.

Huston Street pitched the ninth for his 21st save in as many chances.

The Padres scored twice in the fourth on two hits, two walks and a sacrifice fly off Mike Bolsinger (1-4). Chase Headley drew a leadoff walk, advanced on Tommy Medica's one-out single to left and scored on Maybin's double down the right-field line. Medica scored on Alexi Amarista's sac fly.

Despaigne allowed three of the first four Arizona batters to reach base, but allowed only one run. Leadoff batter Ender Inciarte beat out an infield single and stole second before Paul Goldschmidt walked. Miguel Montero singled in Inciarte before Despaigne got Aaron Hill to fly out to center and struck out Martin Prado.

Bolsinger allowed two runs and three hits in six innings, struck out six and walked four.

NOTES: Nick Ahmed was selected from Triple-A Reno before the game and made his big league debut for the Diamondbacks, starting at SS and batting eighth. He grounded into a double play in his first at-bat and got his first big league hit, a single, in the seventh. ... The Padres open a three-game series against Cincinnati on Monday night, when former San Diego ace Mat Latos (1-0, 2.89) is scheduled to start against rookie Jesse Hahn (3-1, 2.38). ... The Diamondbacks are off Monday before opening a three-game series at Pittsburgh on Tuesday, when the scheduled starters are Wade Miley (3-6, 4.78) against Jeff Locker (1-1, 3.74) in a matchup of lefties.
