Reds score six in 11th to dump Padres

Apr 13, 2011 - 7:18 AM San Diego, CA (Sports Network) - The Cincinnati Reds scored six times with two outs in the 11th inning, as Drew Stubbs capped the surge with a three-run homer for an 8-2 victory over the San Diego Padres.

Stubbs finished with four RBI while Jonny Gomes went 2-for-4 with a run scored and one driven in for the Reds, who won the first two meetings in this three- game series and improved to 8-3 on the season.

Logan Ondrusek (2-0) stranded the bases loaded in both the ninth and 10th innings to get the win.

Alberto Gonzalez had an RBI triple for the Padres, who have lost five of six.

Cory Luebke (0-1) retired the first two hitters of the 11th before Gomes got the rally started with a single to right. Ryan Hanigan followed with a double down the left-field line, and Gomes scored standing up for a 3-2 lead.

The floodgates opened after Jay Bruce worked a walk. Chris Heisey hit a pinch- hit single to plate Hanigan, and Edgar Renteria knocked in Bruce with a dribbler up the middle.

Stubbs made it a six-run game with his homer to straightaway center, and Francisco Cordero closed it out in the bottom half.

Cincy's Sam LeCure was sensational in his six-inning start, allowing just one hit and two walks while recording a career-high eight strikeouts.

Clayton Richard lasted 7 2/3 innings for San Diego, getting charged with five hits, two walks and two runs. One of the runs was unearned, but it came as a result of his throwing error.

San Diego had one hit leading up to the eighth, but Nick Masset gave up a single to Nick Hundley and double to Cameron Maybin to start the inning.

Gonzalez struck out before pinch-hitter Eric Patterson plated Hundley with a groundout to second. The Padres nearly went ahead on Will Venable's slow- roller up the middle, but Brandon Phillips made a barehanded stab and threw off his back foot to get the speedster by a step.

Bruce ran down Maybin's liner into the right-field gap to leave the bases full in the ninth, and Gomes made a leaping grab in left to strand three in the 10th.

"We didn't get the hit when we needed to and they did," Padres manager Bud Black said simply.

With two on and two outs in the first inning, Gomes took an inside-out swing and doubled down the right-field line to plate Phillips.

The Padres tied it in the second, though they could have had more if not for a terrific play by Scott Rolen. Gonzalez drove one into the right-field corner to plate Hundley from first. Gonzalez raced around for a triple, then tried to score when the relay throw got away from Rolen. But Rolen made a nice recovery and threw a perfect strike from his knees to get Gonzalez at the plate.

Cincinnati regained the lead in the fifth, which Bruce began with a base hit. Paul Janish followed with a bouncer back to the mound, and Richard's throw to second was well wide, leaving runners on first and second.

LeCure's bunt moved both runners up 90 feet, and Stubbs chased home the go- ahead run with a sacrifice fly.

Game Notes
