Reyes' 2-out, 2-run double in 9th rallies Tigers over Padres

DETROIT (AP) - Victor Reyes hit a two-out, two-run double in the ninth inning to rally the Detroit Tigers over the San Diego Padres 4-3 on Wednesday.

The Padres led 3-2 going into the ninth and brought on closer Taylor Rogers (1-5), who gave up a one-run lead in the ninth on Tuesday night in a game San Diego eventually won in the 10th.

This time, Jeimer Canderlario led off with a double before Rogers retired the next two batters. Jonathan Schoop followed with a dribbler down the third-base line for a single that put runners at the corners.

Reyes then hit a drive over the head of right fielder Nomar Mazara to win it. Mazara got close to the wall chasing the ball and let the carom bounce past time, and both runners easily scored.

Michael Fulmer (3-4) picked up the win with a scoreless ninth.

The Padres are 14-21 since June 16.

Yu Darvish, who came into the game with a 7-0 record in seven starts against Detroit, allowed two runs in seven innings, striking out 11.

Candelario, who homered three times in the first two games of the series, gave the Tigers a 1-0 lead with an RBI single in the first.

Tigers starter Tarik Skubal faced the minimum nine batters through three innings, but ran into trouble in a 39-pitch fourth. With one out, Jake Cronenworth singled, and after first baseman Harold Castro dropped a foul pop, Skubal walked Manny Machado on 13 pitches -- the longest at-bat of Machado's career.

  • A wild pitch moved the runners to second and third, and Luke Voit tied the game with a sacrifice fly. Austin Nola walked and Ha-Seong Kim put San Diego ahead 2-1 with an RBI single.

    Castro, Miguel Cabrera and Candelario hit consecutive singles in the sixth, with Candelario picking up his eighth RBI of the series on the third.

    Joe Jimenez (3-1) struck out three of the first four batters he faced, but one reached base when Haase dropped the third strike and threw wildly to first. That kept the inning going for Jurickson Profar's RBI single, putting the Padres ahead 3-2.

    LATE START

    The game was delayed by 20 minutes before starting in a light mist that cleared out in the early innings.

    UP NEXT

    The Padres have Thursday off to fly home before starting a three-game series with the Minnesota Twins on Friday. Blake Snell (2-5, 4.75) will start the opener against Joe Ryan (7-3, 2.89).

    Detroit starts a four-game series in Toronto on Thursday, with Tyler Alexander (2-3, 4.05) moving back into the rotation to pitch the opener.
