SAN DIEGO (AP) -- Everth Cabrera singled in the go-ahead run in the eighth
against Jordan Zimmermann, and Yonder Alonso homered and helped turn a heads-up
double-play as the San Diego Padres beat the Washington Nationals 2-1 Saturday
Zimmermann (7-2) was trying to become the first to win eight games in the big
leagues this season.
Cabrera singled in Alex Amarista, who reached when catcher Kurt Suzuki fielded
his bunt and forced John Baker at second. Zimmermann tried to pick off Amarista
but his throw was wide of first baseman Adam LaRoche for an error, allowing
Amarista to take second.
Cabrera's hit made a winner of Eric Stults (4-3).
