SAN DIEGO (AP) — Will Venable hit a game-winning single in the bottom of the 12th inning off closer Craig Kimbrel to give the San Diego Padres a 3-2 victory over the San Diego Padres on Saturday night.

Yangervis Solarte walked to start the 12th, and Jedd Gyorko and Chris Nelson drew consecutive one-out walks. Venable followed with his game-winning single over the head of right fielder Jason Heyward to give the Padres their fourth win in five games. Atlanta extended its losing streak to five games.

Tim Stauffer (3-2) pitched two innings for the win. Kimbrel (0-3) took the loss.

The Braves loaded the bases in the top of the 12th with no outs, but Stauffer got Evan Gattis to hit into a third-to-home-to-first double play and retired Chris Johnson on a groundout.

Atlanta tied the game at 2 in the eighth on Heyward’s single, a walk and Johnson’s RBI single.
