PHOENIX (AP) -- Max Scherzer struck out 10 and drove in two runs, Chris Young made a leaping catch at the fence for the final out and the Arizona Diamondbacks held off San Diego 6-5 on Tuesday night to snap the Padres' 10-game winning streak.
The Diamondbacks nearly blew a six-run lead for the second straight day. On Monday, they let the Padres rally from a 7-1 deficit in the eighth for a 9-7 victory in 10 innings.
On Tuesday night, the Padres scored four in the eighth to pull to 6-4.
San Diego loaded the bases against Juan Gutierrez with no outs in the ninth. Scott Hairston grounded into a 5-4-3 double play, cutting Arizona's lead to 6-5, and then Young ended the game with a terrific grab on a drive to center by Kevin Kouzmanoff.
