CINCINNATI (AP) - The Cincinnati Reds' 10-game winning streak came to an end Monday night as Will Venable drove in four runs that led the San Diego Padres to an 11-5 victory.
Former Reds had starring roles in stopping Cincinnati's run. Edinson Volquez (7-7) got the win, and Yonder Alonso tied a Padres record with three doubles.
The Reds were aiming for the club record of 12 consecutive wins, shared by the 1939 and 1957 teams.
Not even close.
Mike Leake (4-7) retired five batters in his shortest start. The Reds walked a season-high 11. Rookie catcher Devin Mesoraco was ejected for arguing ball-and-strike calls. He poked at plate umpire Chad Fairchild's chest protector and bumped him before leaving.
The field has been set for the 2013 Indianapolis 500. Ed Carpenter won the pole and will be joined by rookie Carlos Munoz and Marco Andretti on the front row. Row three features defending IndyCar champ Ryna Hunter-Reay, Helio Castroneves and James Hinchcliffe. (NBC Sports)
