ANAHEIM -- Matt Kemp, struggling through a nightmarish month of May, came up big Tuesday night, lining a two-out, bases-clearing double in the 10th inning to lead the Padres to a 4-0 win at Angel Stadium.
Both clubs were held scoreless through the first nine frames, and Angels setup man Joe Smith, who pitched two innings the night before, took the ball for the top of the 10th. The Padres (22-25) loaded the bases on back-to-back walks by Yangervis Solarte and Will Venable. Smith struck out Justin Upton swinging, but Kemp turned on a 1-0 sinker and lined it down the left-field line to plate three.
