Padres end Reds’ 10-game streak with 11-5 win

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.
