Everth Cabrera hit a bases-loaded single in the ninth inning to give the San Diego Padres a 2-1 win over the Cincinnati Reds on Thursday night.
Rookie Yasmani Grandal hit a leadoff triple in the ninth against Logan Ondruski (3-2), who then intentionally walked Yonder Alonso. Cameron Maybin followed with a bunt that bounced high in the air and left no play to load the bases.
The Reds brought in Sam LeCure and played the infield and outfield in before Cabrera's game-winning hit, a fly ball that hit the left-field wall on one bounce, gave San Diego its season-high sixth straight win.
All-Star Huston Street (2-0) pitched the ninth for the win.
San Diego pinch-hitter Logan Forsythe tied the game at 1 when he homered off reliever Sean Marshall to lead off the eighth inning.
