Pujols lined a shot up the middle in his first at-bat that appeared to hit Garland's heel and bounced away for an infield single. He then lined a single to left-center and hit a line drive in the sixth that was snared by third baseman Chase Headley before a soft ground-ball single to right field in the ninth.
Pujols has one homer and eight extra-base hits in 82 at-bats in May.
After Garland walked Matt Holliday to load the bases with one out in the first, he got out of the jam by striking out Colby Rasmus and David Freese.
NOTES: Garland's win streak is his longest since 2006 with the Chicago White Sox when he won eight straight from June 13 through Aug. 4. ... Wainwright struck out 12 on July 1, against San Francisco. ... Pujols, who hit .231 with one homer and three RBIs in seven games against San Diego last season, had four hits in 24 at-bats (.167) with a solo homer in his previous six games at Petco Park. ... The Padres recalled OF Luis Durango from Triple-A Portland.
