MLB: San Diego 3, Cincinnati 2

April 13, 2011 at 9:59 PM

SAN DIEGO, April 13 (UPI) -- Orlando Hudson singled home Nick Hundley from third with two away in the ninth inning Wednesday, giving San Diego a 3-2 win over Cincinnati.

The Padres scored a single run in each of the final three innings to overcome a 2-0 deficit.

Pinch-hitter Brad Hawpe drew a one-out walk in the ninth off Nick Masset (0-3). Hundley singled Hawpe to third and, after Will Venable was walked intentionally to load the bases, Hawpe was thrown out at home on a fielder's choice grounder from Jason Bartlett.

Hudson then hit the first pitch he saw from Masset into left for the game-winning single. Hudson also scored the game-tying run in the eighth on a ground out by Jorge Cantu. A sacrifice fly from Hundley in the seventh started the San Diego comeback.

The win went to Heath Bell (1-0), who worked a perfect top of the ninth. Cincinnati had won the first two games of the series.
