Cincinnati Reds beat Padres in 13 innings on Votto's sac fly

CINCINNATI - 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.

Jack Hannahan drew a one-out walk from Tim Stauffer (1-1) and Shin-Soo Choo snapped a 0-for-16 slump with a one-out double to right field. Ryan Hanigan, pinch-hitting against a drawn-in, five-man infield and shallow two-man outfield, was hit by a pitch to load the bases.

The Padres went back to three outfielders with everybody drawn in, and Votto hit a fly to left field to drive in Hannahan from third base.

Xavier Paul tied the score with a two-run, pinch-hit home run off Ian Kennedy in the eighth and the Reds overcame two more errors for their fourth win in five games.
