SAN DIEGO (AP) — Will Venable drove in the go-ahead run in the seventh inning and Everth Cabrera had two hits and scored twice as the San Diego Padres beat the Colorado Rockies 3-2 on Sunday.
Dale Thayer (2-2) pitched 1 1/3 innings of scoreless relief to earn the victory for the Padres, who have won seven of nine and three straight series for the first time this season. Huston Street retired the side in order in the ninth to convert his 16th save in as many chances.
Cabrera singled to lead off the seventh against Adam Ottavino (2-1) before Colorado manager Jim Tracy brought in left-hander Matt Reynolds to face John Baker, who sacrificed Cabrera to second. Venable, who entered in the top of the inning as part of a double switch, singled to right and Cabrera beat Tyler Colvin’s throw home to put San Diego on top 3-2.
