turned into a win for the
San Diego Padres
Cabrera's RBI single scored Durango from second base in the bottom of the 10th inning and gave the Padres a 6-5 victory over
Durango, making his first major league start, opened the inning with his third infield single of the game. He stole second

Cabrera had three hits, including an infield single and a bunt single. Durango, who made his major league debut as a pinch-hitter
on Tuesday night, had three infield singles, two of them bunts. A third bunt went as a sacrifice, although replays appeared

hit a home run.''

It was the speed of Durango and Cabrera that had both teams talking.
''He (Durango) played the game with us however he wanted to,'' Montero said. ''He never hit the ball out of the infield and
got three hits. I know he's fast and has good speed, but we should have played him a little better.''
It has been a long time since San Diego has had two players with the kind of speed shown by Durango and Cabrera.
''Their bunt singles and their activity on the bases was tough to defend,'' Diamondbacks manager A.J. Hinch said. ''We didn't
have an answer for it.''
