San Diego Padres pull out 6-4 win over Detroit Tigers in 10th inning on Tuesday night
By DAVE HOGG
DETROIT — Jorge Alfaro capped San Diego’s three-run 10th inning with a two-run single, and the Padres beat the Detroit Tigers 6-4 on Tuesday night.
Luke Voit finished with three RBIs for San Diego after he was hit by a bases-loaded pitch from All-Star Gregory Soto (2-5) in the 10th. After Matthew Batten struck out swinging for the second out, Alfaro drove in Jake Cronenworth and Manny Machado with a single to right.
Cronenworth was hit by a pitch leading off the inning, and Machado reached on shortstop Javier Báez’s throwing error.
“We are pretty beat up in the bullpen, and (Soto) was so efficient in the ninth that I felt good about putting him back out there,” Tigers manager A.J. Hinch said.
Detroit got one back on Jeimer Candelario’s RBI double in the bottom half. But Nick Martinez retired Willi Castro on a fly ball to center, earning his fourth save.
Castro led off the Detroit ninth with a base hit against Padres closer Taylor Rogers before Robbie Grossman walked with two out.
Riley Greene fell behind 0-2 before tying the game with a single to left, but Rogers (1-4) struck out Báez to force extra innings.
