Spangenberg's pinch HR lifts Padres to 2-1 win

Cory Spangenberg's first big league home run came on the first pitch he saw as a pinch hitter with one out in the ninth inning and gave the San Diego Padres a 2-1 victory against the Arizona Diamondbacks on Tuesday night.
 
Spangenberg, hitting for Cameron Maybin, connected against Brad Ziegler (5-3), sending a drive to the home run porch down the right-field line at Petco Park.
 
Spangenberg made his big league debut on Monday, hitting a two-run single and making two nice plays at third base.
 
Kevin Quackenbush (3-3) pitched the ninth for the win.
