SAN DIEGO -- There was little that didn't go the Padres' way on Tuesday night, as they amassed a season-high 16 hits in an 8-2 victory over the Reds at Petco Park.

Heck, they even managed to get a call overturned with two outs in the ninth inning, a reversal that ended the game.

With two outs and the bases loaded, the Reds' Ryan Ludwick hit a ball to third baseman Chase Headley, who threw to second baseman Irving Falu for the forceout at second base as Todd Frazier was bearing down on him.

Frazier was ruled safe on a close play that Padres manager Bud Black opted to challenge. The umpires huddled before overturning the call, ruling Frazier out, thus ending the game.

"That was a bang-bang play. I just saw it on the big screen. It was close enough to challenge, we had our guys look at it and it was close," Black said. "So I popped out and thought we should challenge that.

"I'm glad it went our way."

Cincinnati manager Bryan Price obviously felt differently about the outcome.

"This is an 8-2 ballgame, it may be inconsequential, but that's not the way to end the game. It just isn't," Price said.

This marked the second time since full instant replay was instituted that a game ended with a call being reversed due to instant replay.

The previous game was on May 6 in a game between the Giants and Pirates when Pittsburgh's Starling Marte was originally ruled out at home plate with two outs in the bottom of the ninth inning. That overturned call gave the Pirates a 2-1 walk-off victory.
