San Diego, CA (Sports Network) - Everth Cabrera smacked a game-winning single
in the bottom of the ninth inning, lifting the San Diego Padres to their
season-high sixth straight win as they downed the Cincinnati Reds, 2-1, in the
opener of a four-game set.
Logan Forsythe tied the game with a leadoff pinch-hit homer in the eighth, the
Padres' third straight contest with a pinch-hit blast.
Yasmani Grandal lasered a one-hop double off the wall in right off Logan
Ondrusek (3-2) to begin the ninth. After Yonder Alonso was intentionally
walked, Cameron Maybin loaded the bases following a bunt single, chasing
Ondrusek from the contest.
Cabrera then ripped the first pitch he saw off of Sam LeCure into left-center,
plating Grandal for the winning run.
Chris Heisey's RBI triple in the second accounted for the lone run for
Cincinnati, which has dropped four of its last five games.
