Padres take advantage of 4 errors, beat Reds 3-1
CINCINNATI (AP) - Will Venable homered for the second game in a row, and San Diego's depleted offense took advantage of Cincinnati's season-high four errors for a 3-1 victory over the Reds on Saturday night.
Third baseman Jack Hannahan had three of the errors - two on off-target throws to first base, another on a grounder that got through him. All San Diego managed off the errors was two unearned runs.
Venable hit his team-high 15th homer in the eighth inning off reliever Manny Parra.
Tyson Ross (3-5) gave up Brandon Phillips' RBI single in the first, one of only four hits he allowed over seven innings. Huston Street pitched the ninth for his 22nd save in 23 chances.
Three of Cincinnati's errors came behind Tony Cingrani (5-2).
