PITTSBURGH (AP) - Chase Headley homered from both sides of the plate for the first time in his career and drove in five runs to rally the San Diego Padres to a 9-8 victory over the Pittsburgh Pirates on Friday night.

Headley hit a three-run home run to cap a six-run fifth inning that tied the game 7-7. His two-run blast in the seventh put San Diego ahead 9-8 after Rod Barajas had hit an RBI single for Pittsburgh in the sixth. San Diego ran its winning streak to 10 games in Pittsburgh and hasn't lost at PNC Park since Sept. 18, 2009. The Padres have won five straight games overall.

Headley's go-ahead home run came off left-hander Tony Watson (5-2), who entered the game with two outs in the seventh inning and walked Everth Cabrera. Headley followed with his 17th homer.
