Fernando Tatis Jr. hits the ball for a double

Fernando Tatis Jr. doubled home the tiebreaking run in the 10th inning, and the San Diego Padres beat the struggling Cincinnati Reds 6-4 on Thursday to secure a series win.

Luis Arraez, who had 10 hits in the three-game set, reached on a bunt single leading off the 10th that moved automatic runner Luis Campasano from second base to third.

Tatis hit a double down the left-field line off Sam Moll (0-1) to drive in Campusano, and Arraez scored on Jake Cronenworth’s sacrifice fly. It was Tatis’ only hit in five at-bats.

“You have to stay with it. This game is hard,” he said. “I got results, but it’s one at-bat. The result of the last at-bat, you forget about it and go again. We’re playing good baseball, and you don’t want to be the guy left behind.”

Cincinnati didn’t put up much resistance in the bottom half. Padres closer Robert Suarez struck out Elly De La Cruz, walked Jeimer Candelario, and got Mike Ford and Spencer Steer on flyouts to wrap up his 14th save.

Frankie Montas pitches to the batter

Jeremiah Estrada (1-0) struck out five in two scoreless innings for his first major league win. Nick Martini broke an 0-for-17 slump with a two-run homer in the sixth that tied the game at 4 for Cincinnati.

San Diego scored twice in each of the first two innings. Manny Machado had a two-run double, and Arraez delivered an RBI single.

Arraez finished with four hits and David Peralta had three for the Padres. Arraez has reached base safely in 28 straight games.

Reds starter Frankie Montas allowed four runs and nine hits in six innings. Padres starter Matt Waldron pitched five innings, allowing two runs and six hits with seven strikeouts.

Cincinnati had two runners thrown out at the plate. Candelario was caught trying to score on a double steal in the first inning, and De La Cruz was thrown out in the fifth when he raced home on a grounder to third.
