Nady's single in 12th lifts Padres over Nats

WASHINGTON - Former Nationals outfielder Xavier Nady's tiebreaking RBI single off Craig Stammen in the top of the 12th inning, right after an error let the runner get to third base, gave the San Diego Padres a 4-3 victory over Washington on Thursday night.
 
Nady, who entered the game in the ninth, hit a 2-0 fastball up the middle off Stammen (0-1), who was working his third inning.
 
Jedd Gyorko had singled off Stammen, then stole second and got to third when catcher Jose Lobaton's throw sailed into the outfield.
 
Alex Torres (1-0), San Diego's sixth pitcher, got two outs in the 11th for the win, and Houston Street worked around Bryce Harper's leadoff double in the 12th for his eighth save.
