Recap


Padres 4, Reds 2:
Nick Hundley laced a tiebreaking two-run double with two outs in the bottom of the eighth inning as San Diego beat visiting Cincinnati for its fourth straight victory.

Will Venable delivered a one-out single against Manny Parra (1-2) and Jedd Gyorko singled off Sam LeCure before Hundley smoked a ball just inside the left-field line that rolled into the corner to score both runners. The Reds have lost five straight games to fall six games behind first-place Pittsburgh in the National League Central.

San Diego’s Dale Thayer (1-3) recorded four outs and Huston Street pitched around a leadoff single in the ninth for his 20th save in 21 opportunities.

Devin Mesoraco’s high-bouncing infield single in the second gave the Reds a 1-0 lead and San Diego tied the contest in the bottom of the inning on Logan Forsythe’s infield out. Cincinnati’s Jay Bruce singled in a run in the sixth and the Padres answered in the bottom of the inning on Venable’s run-scoring double off the center-field fence.

Reds starter Mat Latos and San Diego’s Edinson Volquez, who were traded for one another after the 2011 campaign, both pitched well Tuesday. Latos gave up two runs and six hits in six innings and Volquez allowed two runs and four hits in 6 1/3 innings.

GAME NOTEBOOK: Venable reached base four times on three hits and a walk. … Reds OF Shin-Soo Choo (ankle) was back in the lineup after missing Monday’s game and was hitless in three at-bats. … Padres OF Carlos Quentin left after five innings after aggravating his troublesome right knee.
