SAN DIEGO — Ryan Hanigan drove in the go-ahead run with a double and Drew Stubbs blasted a three-run homer that capped a six-run burst in the 11th inning Tuesday night as the Cincinnati Reds beat the Padres 8-2.
The Padres nearly won in the ninth when Cameron Maybin hit a drive with two outs and the bases loaded. Maybin put up his hands to celebrate, but right fielder Jay Bruce recovered from a false step in and broke back to make the catch.
Hanigan's double into the left-field corner off Cory Luebke (0-1) drove in Jonny Gomes, who was running on the 3-2 pitch from first base. After pinch-hitter Chris Heisey and Edgar Renteria knocked in runs with singles, Stubbs homered.
Logan Ondrusek (2-0) got out of bases-loaded jams in the ninth and 10th innings. Ondrusek, who was 5-0 as a rookie last season, became the first Reds pitcher to start his career 7-0 since 1986-87.
Never miss a local story.
The victory moved Cincinnati manager Dusty Baker into a tie for 22nd place on the all-time wins list at 1,413 with Hall of Famer Miller Huggins.
San Diego tied the game in the bottom of the eighth. Nick Hundley led off with a single against reliever Nick Masset. Maybin followed with a double and pinch-hitter Eric Patterson's groundout tied it.
