Joey Votto delivered a sacrifice fly in the bottom of the 13th inning to give the Cincinnati Reds a 3-2 victory over the San Diego Padres on Sunday. The Padres have lost four of their last five games. San Diego put the leadoff man on base in the final three innings but was kept away from home plate by the Reds bullpen. Cincinnati was down, 2-0, in the eighth inning and showed little life offensively against Padres starter Ian Kennedy until Xavier Paul provided a pinch-hit, two-run home run with one out to tie the game. Kennedy, in his second start for San Diego after being acquired from Arizona in a July 31 trade, allowed one hit pitcher Mike Leake 's leadoff single in the third in 7 1/3 scoreless innings and retired 16 consecutive batters before pinch-hitter Zack Cozart reached with an infield single.
