Padres rally late to beat Orioles 3-2

Everth Cabrera has 60,000th hit in team history

BALTIMORE - Chris Denorfia and Everth Cabrera hit two-out RBI singles off Jim Johnson in the ninth inning, and the San Diego Padres got a home run from Carlos Quentin in a 3-2 victory over the Baltimore Orioles on Tuesday night.

After the Orioles took a 2-1 lead in the eighth, Johnson (1-3) entered with a franchise-record streak of 35 straight converted saves. He immediately gave up consecutive singles before getting Jedd Gyorko to hit into a 6-4-3 double play. But Denorfia followed with a single up the middle and, after Johnson hit Nick Hundley with a pitch, Cabrera singled to center for a 3-2 lead.

Cabrera's hit was the 60,000th in Padres history.

Luke Gregerson (2-2) got the last out in the eighth and Huston Street earned his ninth save.
