San Diego Padres extended their season-best winning streak to seven games with a 5-3 victory over the San Francisco Giants after 13 innings.

Will Venable made an incredible catch to save the Padres from defeat before pinch-hitting pitcher Andrew Cashner drove in the go-ahead run with a perfectly executed safety squeeze in the final inning.

Venable's diving grab on the center-field warning track with his back to home plate ended the 12th and stole a game-winning hit from the World Series holder and Juan Perez.

Monday's results:

Arizona 2 Miami 3
Atlanta 2 New York Mets 1
Cincinnati 4 Pittsburgh 1
Cleveland 1 Kansas City 2
Detroit 5 Baltimore 1
Houston 2 Chicago WS 4
LA Angels 11 Seattle 3
Philadelphia 5 Washington 4
San Francisco 3 San Diego 5
St Louis 5 Chicago C 2
Texas 8 Oakland 7
Toronto 2 Colorado 0

Moments later, Alexi Amarista started the winning rally with a single and went to third on Chris Denorfia's single.

Cashner came up to face Jose Mijares (0-1) and dropped down a bunt single between the mound and third base for his sixth career hit and second RBI.

San Diego added another run on a bases-loaded walk from Jake Dunning.
