Bloop single puts an end to Phillies’ 6-game win streak


SAN DIEGO (AP) – Dave Winfield drove in three runs and Tim Flannery singled home the tie-breaking run in the sixth inning as the San Diego Padres ended a six-game Philadelphia winning streak with a 4-3 victory over the Phillies yesterday. 


Flannery 's hit came off reliever Kevin Saucier, 3-1, and scored Willie Montanez all the way from first base. Montanez had reached first on a single and raced home on Flannery's bloop single to left-center, beating the throw to the plate. 


Dennis Kinney, 2-1, who came on in relief of starter Juan Eichelberger, got the victory despite giving up a three-run homer to Bake McBride in the fifth inning. 


Winfield singled in a pair of runs in the first and hit a bases-loaded sacrifice fly in the third to stake San Diego to a 3-0 lead. 


Eichelberger, making his first start since being recalled from the minors earlier this week, ran into trouble in the fifth when the Phillies put a pair of runners on with a single and a walk. Kinney came on and McBride greeted him with his fourth home run of the year to tie the game. 


Rollie Fingers took over for Kinney with one out in the seventh and earned his eighth save.
