SAN DIEGO (AP) -- Everth Cabrera hit a bases-loaded single in the ninth inning to give the San Diego Padres a 2-1 win over the Cincinnati Reds on Thursday night. Rookie Yasmani Grandal hit a leadoff triple in the ninth against Logan Ondrusek (3-2), who then intentionally walked Yonder Alonso. Cameron Maybin followed with a bunt that bounced high in the air and left no play to load the bases. The Reds brought in Sam LeCure and played the infield and outfield in before Cabrera's game-winning hit, a fly ball that hit the left-field wall on one bounce, gave San Diego its season-high sixth straight win. All-Star Huston Street (2-0) pitched the ninth for the win. San Diego pinch-hitter Logan Forsythe tied the game at 1 when he homered off reliever Sean Marshall to lead off the eighth inning. Forsythe's homer, his first as a pinch hitter, carried into the second deck of the brick Western Metal Supply Co. building in left field. The homer ruined a sterling outing by Reds starter Mat Latos, who faced his former team for the first time since an offseason deal that sent four players to San Diego. One of those players was Padres starter Edinson Volquez, who nearly matched Latos for seven innings. Latos did not allow a run on four hits over seven innings. He struck out eight walked two. Volquez gave up just one run on five hits in seven innings. The right-hander struck out 10 while walking three to increase his major league-leading total to 63. The Reds dealt Volquez, former first-round picks Alonso, Grandal and reliever Brad Boxberger to San Diego in December in exchange for Latos. The Reds jumped ahead in the second after Jay Bruce led off with a walk and scored on Chris Heisey's one-out triple. San Diego advanced only one runner to third base against Latos. That came after Alonso's double with one out. Maybin then hit a slow roller to second baseman Brandon Phillips. Maybin slid head-first into the bag and TV replays clearly showed he was safe. But first-base umpire Brian Knight called Maybin out, prompting San Diego manager Bud Black to argue the call. Black was ejected by Knight. With Alonso at third, Latos struck out Cabrera. Latos is 7-0 in his last 14 starts with a 3.43 ERA after starting the season 0-2 with an 8.22 ERA in his first three outings. Volquez, who came in with the second-lowest run support in the majors at 2.69 runs, has allowed just one run in each of his last three starts while giving up only 11 hits and striking out 30 over that span. NOTES: Latos lost the chance to become the first Reds pitcher since Jose Rijo in 1990 to throw three straight complete games in the same season. ... Volquez threw a career-high 127 pitches. ... In Latos' first three major league seasons with San Diego from 2009-11, Latos went 27-29 with a 3.37 ERA in 72 starts. ... Over four seasons with Cincinnati from 2008-11, Volquez was 30-18 with a 4.17 ERA in 74 games, including 73 starts. ... Reds 3B Scott Rolen was out of the starting lineup for the fourth straight game with back spasms. ... NBA Hall of Famer and San Diego native Bill Walton threw out the first pitch -- or pitches. Walton threw two pitches into the dirt before he finally threw a strike to Padres pitcher Clayton Richard. ... The Padres will honor longtime bullpen catcher Darrel Akerfelds for the remainder of the season by hanging his No. 48 jersey on the inside of bullpen fence in center field. Akerfelds died of pancreatic cancer on June 24. ... Reds RHP Bronson Arroyo (3-5, 4.06) will face Padres RHP Kip Wells (1-1, 1.50) on Saturday night.
