San Diego Padres' Everth Cabrera (1) is mobbed by his team after hitting the game winning RBI single in the tenth inning of a baseball game against the Arizona Diamondbacks Wednesday, Sept. 16, 2009 in San Diego.

SAN DIEGO (AP) - Everth Cabrera's game-ending single in the bottom of 10th inning gave the San Diego Padres a 6-5 victory over the Arizona Diamondbacks on Wednesday.

Cabrera's third hit of the game was a grounder past first baseman Brandon Allen into right field. Fellow rookie Luis Durango scored from second when he beat the throw home from Justin Upton as he reached around catcher Miguel Montero to tag the plate.

Durango, making his first career start, opened the 10th with his third infield single. After pinch-hitter David Eckstein flied out, Durango stole second before Cabrera's single off Yusmeiro Petit (3-10).

Heath Bell (6-4) pitched the 10th for the win.

Durango, whose other singles both came on bunts, made his major league debut as a pinch-hitter on Tuesday night. Cabrera had two infield singles, one a bunt.

San Diego's Adrian Gonzalez, pinch-hitting for his brother Edgar, hit a two-run homer in the ninth off Esmerling Vasquez to tie the score at 5. Tony Gwynn led off the inning with a walk off Vasquez, who blew his fourth save chance this season.

Gonzalez got just enough of a fastball to slice it into the left field seats for his first career pinch-hit homer.

Upton had a career-high five hits and fell a home run short of the cycle.

Upton reached on an infield single in the ninth for his fifth hit, one at-bat after he singled in the go-ahead run in the seventh against Adam Russell. Upton doubled in the first, had a fourth-inning single and hit a sixth-inning triple.

Arizona's Mark Reynolds, who set the Major League record with 204 strikeouts last season, struck out four times to reach 200 this season. No other player has ever struck out at least 200 times.

The Diamondbacks got an RBI triple from Augie Ojeda and Chris Young's run-scoring double in the fifth. Reynolds added an RBI groundout in Arizona's two-run seventh when it took a 5-3 lead.

Three San Diego errors, two by Edgar Gonzalez on the same play, led to two unearned runs for Arizona.

NOTES: Ojeda's hit broke a career hitless streak of 34 at-bats at Petco Park. ... Padres LHP Cesar Ramos made his major league debut with a scoreless ninth. ... San Diego RF Will Venable (flu-like symptoms) missed his second straight start and Eckstein (stiff neck) missed his third consecutive start. Both pinch-hit.
