The Reds offense was dominated for most of the night in San Diego by Padres' pitching. The Reds at one point had 16 consecutive batters retired and had just three hits entering the 11th inning.

Zack Duke and Michael Lorenzen finished off another outstanding night of Reds pitching to secure the Reds second consecutive win.
