    Aaron Hill gives Diamondbacks walk-off win over Padres in 10th

    Associated Press

    PHOENIX -- Aaron Hill had no interest in talking about himself after he delivered the latest dramatic win for the Arizona Diamondbacks.

    He chose instead to focus on the resiliency of his team, which shook off a couple of late lost leads and ended up on top.

    Hill lined a game-winning single in the bottom of the 10th inning to score Adam Eaton and give the Diamondbacks a 10-9 victory over the San Diego Padres on Tuesday night.

    "A win is a win, and this was a total team effort," Hill said. "We keep battling back, and this is fun. It's great to see this team rewarded for good things."

    Martin Prado's two-run double in the eighth snapped a 7-all tie, but the Padres tied it again against closer Brad Ziegler.

    Prado sent the game to extra innings when he backhanded a liner by Jedd Gyorko down the third-base line with the bases loaded in the ninth.

    "In that situation, you have to guard the line," Prado said. "You have to be careful and make sure you're in a position to make a play."

    Prado, who reached base four times with a single, a double and two walks, has hit in 13 of his past 14 games, with 21 RBIs. He has a career-high 71 RBIs this season.

    Gerardo Parra had a career-high five RBIs for Arizona, and Heath Bell (5-2) pitched a perfect 10th inning for the win.

    Eaton opened the 10th with a single to center, and Paul Goldschmidt singled to left. With Hill at-bat and runners on second and third, the Padres employed a five-man infield.

    Hill lined a shot against Dale Thayer (2-4) over the head of left fielder Yonder Alonso for his eighth career game-ending hit.

    The Diamondbacks played their 20th extra-inning game this season, second only to the 21 they had in 1999. Arizona is 15-5 in this season's long contests.

    San Diego dropped to 7-6 in extra innings.

    "No doubt, this was a game which had direction," Padres manager Bud Black said. "This one was hard to describe. The game is played by human beings, and you never know how the game will play out. This game was a testament to that."

    The Diamondbacks entered the eighth with a three-run lead and were up by two runs in the ninth but couldn't hold on.

    Arizona trailed 3-0 in the first inning, but Parra tied it in the second with a three-run homer. He drove in two more with a bases-loaded single in the fifth when the Diamondbacks grabbed a 6-3 lead.

    Both hits came against Padres starter Ian Kennedy, who made his first start against his former team. Kennedy lasted only 4 1/3 innings, allowing six runs, six hits and a season-high five walks. He also hit a batter.

    It was the most runs given up by Kennedy since yielding 10 on June 6 against St. Louis while pitching for Arizona.

    Diamondbacks starter David Holmberg also struggled in his major league debut. The first five hitters reached base, and three scored.

    Kennedy needed only 11 pitches to get through the first.

    The usually reliable Diamondbacks bullpen couldn't hold leads in the eighth or ninth. Will Harris and Ziegler were both charged with blown saves.

    Game notes


    Padres 3B Chase Headley left the game in the fifth inning with back stiffness. ... With Arizona, Kennedy wore No. 31, but he had to switch to No. 22 because the Padres retired 31 for Dave Winfield. ... Arizona infielder Willie Bloomquist was named to the Arizona State University Sports Hall of Fame. ... Diamondbacks prospect Chris Owings was named Pacific Coast League rookie of the year. ... Since Aug. 1, Padres leadoff hitters are batting .411, tops in the majors.
