Reds beat Padres in 13 innings on Votto's sac fly

Posted: Updated:

CINCINNATI (AP) — Joey Votto delivered a sacrifice fly in the bottom of the 13th inning to give the Cincinnati Reds a 3-2 victory over the San Diego Padres on Sunday.

Jack Hannahan drew a one-out walk from Tim Stauffer (1-1) and Shin-Soo Choo snapped a 0-for-16 slump with a one-out double to right field. Ryan Hanigan, pinch-hitting against a drawn-in, five-man infield and shallow two-man outfield, was hit by a pitch to load the bases.

The Padres went back to three outfielders with everybody drawn in, and Votto hit a fly to left field to drive in Hannahan from third base.

Xavier Paul tied the score with a two-run, pinch-hit home run off Ian Kennedy in the eighth and the Reds overcame two more errors for their fourth win in five games. They finished their eight-game homestand with five wins after starting 1-2 against St. Louis.

The Padres have lost four of their last five games.

Sam LeCure (2-1), Cincinnati's seventh pitcher, pitched 1 1-3 innings for the win.

Kennedy was positioned to improve his career record against the Reds to 4-0 in four starts. Kennedy, in his second start for San Diego after being acquired from Arizona in a July 31 trade, allowed one hit — pitcher Mike Leake's leadoff single in the third — in 7 1-3 scoreless innings and retired 16 consecutive batters before pinch-hitter Zack Cozart reached with an infield single.

Paul tied the game with his seventh homer of the season, a 422-foot shot into the right-field seats on a 1-2 pitch. Paul has three pinch-hit homers this season and five in his career.

Leake allowed one earned run in seven innings, giving up six hits and two runs with three walks and four strikeouts. He also committed an error, the Reds' sixth in the last two games.

Manny Parra and J.J. Hoover pitched a scoreless eighth before Aroldis Chapman struck out the side in the ninth.

The Reds, who were charged with four errors in their 3-1 loss to San Diego on Saturday, committed another to help the Padres take a 2-0 lead on Rene Rivera's bases-loaded sacrifice fly to center field with one out in the second.

As Yonder Alonso scored from third, backup shortstop Cesar Izturis cut off Choo's throw, but Izturis' quick throw to second trying to get Logan Forsythe going back sailed past Brandon Phillips into foul territory down the right-field line, allowing Forsythe to score.

Notes: Cedeno's second-inning single was his first hit in six at-bats since being called up by San Diego on Wednesday. Cedeno now has hits with each of the six major league teams for which he's played since breaking in in 2005. ... Votto went 0 for 4, ending his eight-game hitting streak. ... RHP Mat Latos (11-3) is scheduled to start Monday for the Reds at Chicago in the first game of a three-game series and seven-game road trip. ... San Diego's brief five-game road trip is scheduled to continue Monday at Colorado with RHP Edison Volquez (8-9) scheduled to start for the Padres.
