Final Score: San Diego 2, Cincinnati 1
Cincinnati, OH (SportsNetwork.com) - Chase Headley's solo home run in the
ninth inning helped the San Diego Padres edge the Cincinnati Reds, 2-1, in the
opener of a three-game set.
Jedd Gyorko drove in the other run for the Padres, who have won four straight.
Andrew Cashner pitched seven strong innings, giving up one run on seven hits,
while Joaquin Benoit (1-0) tossed a scoreless eighth for the win.
Brandon Phillips went 3-for-4 with an RBI for the Reds, who have lost four of
six. Mike Leake also pitched well in the start, allowing just one run on two
hits over eight innings. Aroldis Chapman (0-1) was handed the loss for giving
up Headley's home run.
"Leake couldn't have been any better," said Reds manager Bryan Price. "He had
that really nice mix of sinker/cutter going, he was able to drop the breaking
ball in there and change when he needed it. Just made pitch after pitch."
With two outs in the ninth, Headley knocked a pitch just inside the left-field
foul pole for his fourth home run of the season and a 2-1 lead.
Huston Street tossed a 1-2-3 ninth for his 12th save of the season.
The Reds plated a run in the first inning after Billy Hamilton led off with a
triple and scored on Phillips' single to right.
San Diego tied the game in the fourth when Seth Smith doubled to start, moved
to third on a Carlos Quentin groundout and came home thanks to a sacrifice fly
Todd Frazier doubled to lead off the Cincinnati fourth, but was stranded there
and the team wasted another opportunity to go ahead in the sixth.
The Reds loaded the bases with one out, but Chris Heisey hit a grounder back
to the mound, leading to a force out at home, and Zack Cozart popped out to
end the frame.
Cincinnati was 1-for-9 with runners in scoring position and left eight men on
base ... Each team won three games in the series last season ... Johnny Cueto
pitches for Cincinnati on Wednesday and Ian Kennedy will take the mound for
San Diego ... Before the game, the Padres activated Quentin from the 15-day
disabled list. He was placed on the DL before the start of the season with a
bone contusion in his left knee.
