SAN DIEGO (AP) — Didi Gregorius tripled home the tiebreaking run in the 12th inning to lift the Arizona Diamondbacks over the San Diego Padres 2-1 on Tuesday night.
Paul Goldschmidt hit his NL-best 36th homer for the Diamondbacks, extending his hitting streak to 14 games and increasing his league-leading RBI total to 124.
Gregorius tripled down the right-field line against Luke Gregerson (6-8) to score fellow rookie Chris Owings, who doubled with one out.
Josh Collmenter (5-4) pitched a perfect inning and Brad Ziegler got three outs for his 12th save.
The Diamondbacks set a major league record for most extra innings played in a season with 79. Arizona, which is 17-7 in extra-inning games, broke the record of 76 set by the 1969 Minnesota Twins.
