PHOENIX (AP) Aaron Hill lined a game-winning single in the bottom of the 10th inning to score Adam Eaton and give the Arizona Diamondbacks a 10-9 victory over the San Diego Padres on Tuesday night.

With Hill at-bat and runners on second and third, the Padres employed a five-man infield. Hill lined a shot over the head of left fielder Yonder Alonzo for his eighth career game-ending hit.

Eaton opened the 10th with a single to center, and Paul Goldschmidt singled to left before Hill won it against Dale Thayer (2-4).

The Diamondbacks played their 20th extra-inning game this season, second only to the 21 they had in 1999. Arizona is 15-5 in this season's long contests.

San Diego dropped to 7-6 in extra innings.

Heath Bell (5-2) pitched a perfect 10th inning for the win.
