MLB: PADRES SQUEEZE OUT WIN VS. GIANTS

SAN FRANCISCO -- Will Venable made an incredible catch, pinch- hitting pitcher Andrew Cashner drove in the go-ahead run with a perfectly executed safety squeeze in the 13th inning, and the San Diego Padres extended their season-best winning streak to seven with a 5-3 victory against the San Francisco Giants Monday night.

Venable's diving grab on the center-field warning track with his back to home plate ended the 12th and stole a game-winning hit from Juan Perez.

Moments later, Alexi Amarista started the winning rally with a single and went to third on Chris Denorfia's single. Cashner came up and dropped a bunt single between the mound and third base for his sixth career hit and second RBI.

San Diego added another run on a bases-loaded walk.
