Sunday, May 20, 2012
SAN DIEGO (AP) -- Pitcher Clayton Richard scored the winning run from first base on an error by fill-in left fielder Howie Kendrick with two outs in the 13th inning and the San Diego Padres beat the Los Angeles Angels 3-2 on Sunday in an unusual extra-inning game.
By taking two of three from the Angels, the Padres had their first winning homestand of the season, going 3-2 against the Dodgers and Angels. It was just their third series win in 14 this season.
Richard, scheduled to start Monday night at St. Louis, singled to left with two outs in the 13th off David Pauley (0-1). Will Venable followed with a single to left-center. Kendrick bobbled the ball for an error, allowing Richard to score standing up.
Rookie Miles Mikolas (1-1) pitched two perfect innings for his first big league win.
