Padres finish 3-game sweep of Reds, 4-2

FRANCHY CORDERO'S GO-AHEAD SINGLE IN THE SEVENTH INNING CAPPED A COMEBACK THAT INCLUDED HUNTER RENFROE'S TWO-RUN HOMER, SENDING THE SAN DIEGO PADRES TO A 4-2, SWEEP-COMPLETING VICTORY OVER THE CINCINNATI REDS ON WEDNESDAY. 

JHOULYS CHACIN (6-5) PITCHED SEVEN INNINGS, ALLOWING FIVE HITS AND TWO RUNS.

WITH THE SCORE 2-2 AFTER RENFROE'S TYING SHOT AN INNING EARLIER, PADRES PINCH-HITTER MATT SZCZUR AND JOSE PIRELA SCORED AFTER DRAWING WALKS AGAINST RELIEVER MICHAEL LORENZEN (3-2) TO OPEN THE SEVENTH.

THE REDS, WHO HAVE LOST THEIR PAST EIGHT ROAD GAMES, WERE SWEPT AT BOTH DODGER STADIUM AND PETCO PARK TO GO 0-6 ON THE WEST COAST TRIP.

CORDERO, A ROOKIE CENTER FIELDER WHO MADE HIS MAJOR LEAGUE DEBUT MAY 27, HIT THREE HOME RUNS IN THE SERIES AND KNOCKED HOME SZCZUR WITH A SINGLE TO RIGHT FIELD.
