SAN DIEGO (AP) - Nick Hundley hit a two-run double with two outs in the eighth inning and the San Diego Padres beat Cincinnati 4-2 Tuesday night, handing the Reds their fifth straight loss.

Will Venable, who scored the go-ahead run on Hundleys' hit, went 3 for 3 with a walk, a run scored and an RBI.

Venable singled to right with one out in the eighth against Manny Parra (1-2). Sam LeCure came on and allowed a single to rookie Jedd Gyorko before striking out pinch-hitter Chris Denorfia. Hundley then doubled down the left-field line.

Parra hadn't allowed a run since June 7, a streak of 19 games.

Dale Thayer (1-3) pitched 1 1-3 innings for the win. Huston Street pitched the ninth for his 20th save in 21 chances.
