Padres top Tigers 6-4 in 10 innings
Wednesday, July 27, 2022

(DETROIT) – Jorge Alfaro capped San Diego's three-run 10th inning with a two-run single, and the Padres beat the Detroit Tigers 6-4 on Tuesday night. Luke Voit finished with three RBI for San Diego after he was hit by a bases-loaded pitch from All-Star Gregory Soto (2-5) in the 10th. After Matthew Batten struck out swinging for the second out, Alfaro drove in Jake Croneworth and Manny Machado with a single to right. Detroit got one back on Jeimer Candelario’s RBI double in the bottom half. But Nick Martinez retired Willi Castro on a fly ball to center, earning his fourth save. The big 10th helped end San Diego's 38 year quest to win a game in Detroit. The Padres lost the final three games of the 1984 World Series at Tiger Stadium, were swept in a three-game series at Comerica Park in 2007 and lost 12-4 on Monday. The Padres rarely face the Tigers, but they had an advantage with Clevinger, who came into the game with an 8-2 record and a 1.65 ERA in 12 career appearances against Detroit. Those starts came with Cleveland, but he allowed two runs in seven innings Tuesday night. Candelario finished with two hits and three RBI. Rookie Riley Greene, All-Star Miguel Cabrera and Harold Castro also had two hits in Detroit's 12th loss in 15 games. The Tigers trailed 3-0 before rallying in the seventh. Cabrera hit a leadoff double ahead of Candelario's 10th homer, a drive to right. Greene fell behind 0-2 before tying the game with a single to left. LINKC. Cabrera's seventh-inning double was No. 606 for his career, tying Paul Waner for 14th place.
