SAN DIEGO (AP) — Rene Rivera tied the game with a home run in the ninth inning, then won it with an RBI single in the 10th inning as the San Diego Padres beat the Milwaukee Brewers 3-2 Wednesday night.

Rivera opened the ninth inning with his ninth homer, a shot off Francisco Rodriguez, to tie the score 2-2.

In the 10th, Seth Smith walked and Yasmani Grandal singled to start the inning against Zach Duke (4-1). Smith was thrown out at third on a fielder's choice and, one out later, Rivera singled to center to drive in Grandal from second.

Dale Thayer (4-3) pitched the 10th for the victory.

The Brewers took a 2-0 led in the seventh inning on Elian Herrera's RBI double and a passed ball charged to Rivera.
