Padres/Phillies pictures.

Stephen Goldsmith and I attended the final night of a four game series between NL East-leading Philadelphia and the first place San Diego Padres at Citizen's Bank Park on Monday.

The Padres won a crisp 3-1 decision behind seven shutout innings from Wade LeBlanc to retain the best record in the National League and win the back pair of their only trip to Philly this season.

Photos of Chris Young, Will Venable and game action can be found after the jump.

Young watches the action, with Venable to his left.

Cole Hamels pitched six and one third innings of no hit baseball before being touched up for back-to-back home runs in the seventh.

Chase Utley is off and running.

While cleared to play after jamming his neck sliding into third on Friday, Venable did not get off the bench during Monday's game.

Adrian Gonzalez broke up the no hitter with a home run to left field in the seventh. He would add an insurance run with a second homer in the ninth inning.

Young stands tall at the top of the dugout. While Young out indefinitely with a shoulder injury, he chooses to travel with the team and rehab on the road instead of staying home in San Diego.

Venable selects a bat.

Raul Ibanez at the plate.

Venable and Young share a laugh.

The wave, scourge of man.

Looks like Venable is back in the lineup tonight. I will be at Citi to watch.
