D-backs hold Pads hitless over final 9, win in 18
It was the kind of matchup that only an extra-inning marathon can produce - an infielder pitching to a batter working on an 0-for-6 afternoon, including four strikeouts.
With the Petco Park lights on as dusk fell, Mark Reynolds hit a three-run homer off infielder Josh Wilson with two outs in the 18th inning, sending the Arizona Diamondbacks to a 9-6 win over the San Diego Padres on Sunday in the longest major league game this season.
"It's tough because No. 1, he's a position player and you don't want him to get you out, and No. 2, you don't know what he's going to throw," Reynolds said.
