CINCINNATI (AP) - The Padres' great pitching was wasted by missed opportunities.

Joey Votto delivered a sacrifice fly in the bottom of the 13th inning to give the Cincinnati Reds a 3-2 victory over San Diego on Sunday. The Padres stranded 15 runners to give Votto the chance.

The Padres got the leadoff man on base in the 11th, 12th and 13th innings, including the first two in the 11th, but failed to score.

``We are playing good fundamental baseball but there are a couple of things that we need to get better at,' said second baseman Logan Forsythe. ``Situational hitting is one of them. The Reds got the big hit. We didn't.'

Ian Kennedy was positioned to improve his career record against the Reds to 4-0 in four starts. Kennedy, in his second start for San Diego after being acquired from Arizona in a July 31 trade, allowed one hit - pitcher Mike Leake's leadoff single in the third - in 7 1-3 scoreless innings and retired 16 consecutive batters before pinch-hitter Zack Cozart reached with an infield single.

Xavier Paul tied the score with a two-run, pinch-hit home run off Kennedy in the eighth and the Reds overcame two more errors for their fourth win in five games.

``We pitched our butt off,' Padres manager Bud Black said. ``It is a topic we talk about all the time: situational hitting. We didn't get it done. We didn't advance runners and we had good pitches to hit.'

Kennedy was ahead of Paul 1-2 but left his one bad pitch of the game up.

``The first two strikes were identical changeups,' Kennedy said. ``I tried to duplicate it with the third one. I hung it. It was one of those pitches that as soon as it leaves your hand, you hope he takes it. It probably would have been a ball.'

Paul, who committed a baserunning blunder that cost the Reds a chance to tie the game on Saturday, redeemed himself with his seventh homer of the season, a 422-foot shot into the right-field seats. Paul has three pinch-hit homers this season and five in his career.

``I think it may have been off the plate but it wasn't too high. It was too close to take with two strikes,' Paul said. ``It feels good to contribute in front of the home crowd.'

Jack Hannahan drew a one-out walk from Tim Stauffer (1-1) in the 13th and Shin-Soo Choo snapped a 0-for-16 slump with a one-out double to right field. Ryan Hanigan, pinch-hitting against a drawn-in, five-man infield and shallow two-man outfield, was hit by a pitch to load the bases.

``The walk to Hannahan was not how Tim wanted to start the inning,' Black said. ``He got ahead of Hanigan and couldn't put him away. That's not what you want when you're facing Votto and Brandon Phillips.'

The Padres went back to three outfielders with everybody drawn in, and Votto hit a fly to left field to drive in Hannahan from third base.

The Padres have lost four of their last five games.

``No one is taking it harder than those guys in that room (clubhouse) but going forward we have to get better at advancing runners,' Black said.

Sam LeCure (2-1), Cincinnati's seventh pitcher, pitched 1 1-3 innings for the win.

Leake allowed one earned run in seven innings, giving up six hits and two runs with three walks and four strikeouts. He also committed an error, the Reds' sixth in the last two games.

Manny Parra and J.J. Hoover pitched a scoreless eighth before Aroldis Chapman struck out the side in the ninth.

The Reds, who were charged with four errors in their 3-1 loss to San Diego on Saturday, committed another to help the Padres take a 2-0 lead on Rene Rivera's bases-loaded sacrifice fly to center field with one out in the second. As Yonder Alonso scored from third, backup shortstop Cesar Izturis cut off Choo's throw, but Izturis' quick throw to second trying to get Logan Forsythe going back sailed past Brandon Phillips into foul territory down the right-field line, allowing Forsythe to score.

Notes: Cedeno's second-inning single was his first hit in six at_bats since being called up by San Diego on Wednesday. Cedeno now has hits with each of the six major league teams for which he's played since breaking in 2005. ... Votto went 0 for 4, ending his eight-game hitting streak. ... RHP Mat Latos (11-3) is scheduled to start Monday for the Reds at Chicago in the first game of a three-game series and seven-game road trip. ... San Diego's brief five-game road trip is scheduled to continue Monday at Colorado with RHP Edison Volquez (8-9) scheduled to start for the Padres.
