Fernando Tatis Jr. hits a go-ahead double in the 10th inning as the Padres beat the Reds 6-4

CINCINNATI (AP) - Fernando Tatis Jr. doubled home the tiebreaking run in the 10th inning and the San Diego Padres beat the reeling Cincinnati Reds 6-4 on Thursday to secure a series win.

Luis Arraez, who had 10 hits in the three-game set, reached on a bunt single leading off the 10th that sent automatic runner Luis Campasano from second base to third. Tatis ripped a double down the left-field line off Sam Moll (0-1) to drive in Campusano, and Arraez scored on Jake Cronenworth's sacrifice fly.

Cincinnati went quietly in the bottom half. Padres closer Robert Suarez struck out Elly De La Cruz, walked Jeimer Candelario and got Mike Ford and Spencer Steer on flyouts to wrap up his 14th save.

Jeremiah Estrada (1-0) struck out five in two scoreless innings for his first major league win.

Nick Martini snapped an 0-for-17 slump with a two-run homer in the sixth that tied the game at 4 for Cincinnati.

San Diego scored twice in each of the first two innings. Manny Machado had a two-run double, and Arraez delivered an RBI single.

Reds starter Frankie Montas allowed four runs and nine hits in six innings.
