SAN DIEGO -- The San Diego Padres signed shortstop Ronny Cedeno to a minor league contract Saturday because All-Star Everth Cabrera is facing a 50 game suspension by Major League Baseball as part of its investigation of the Biogenesis drug clinic. Austin Rivers Clippers Jersey . "He was signed for that possibility, yes," general manager Josh Byrnes said. Cedeno was scheduled to be in the lineup for Double-A Lake Elsinore on Saturday night. Cabrera is among 14 players facing discipline in MLBs Biogenesis probe, and suspensions are expected Monday. The Padres are off Monday and begin a two-game series against the Baltimore Orioles on Tuesday night. The switch-hitting Cabrera leads the NL with 37 stolen bases. Last year, he led the NL with a career-high 44. Hes hitting .285 with four homer and 29 RBIs. "I think from Joshs standpoint that we have to make sure that were covered," manager Bud Black said. "I think Ive heard other managers echo this and other GMs. We dont know for sure really whats going to happen. But in case that happens, by the signing of Cedeno that gives us some coverage at shortstop if needed." The 30-year-old Cedeno, recently released by the Houston Astros, was hitting .220 with one homer and 12 RBIs. He struck out 42 times in 141 at-bats. Besides the Astros, Cedeno also has played for the Chicago Cubs, Seattle, Pittsburgh and the New York Mets. Wesley Johnson Clippers Jersey . 1 position.

BALTIMORE -- Instead of blowing a lead, the San Diego Padres erased a deficit. Whats more, the comeback came against a guy who hadnt blown a save opportunity since last July. Chris Denorfia and Everth Cabrera hit two-out RBI singles off Jim Johnson in the ninth inning, and the Padres got a home run from Carlos Quentin in a 3-2 victory over the Baltimore Orioles on Tuesday night. After the Orioles took a 2-1 lead in the eighth, Johnson (1-3) entered with a franchise-record streak of 35 straight converted saves. He immediately gave up two consecutive singles before getting Jedd Gyorko to hit into a 6-4-3 double play. But Denorfia followed with a single up the middle and, after Johnson hit Nick Hundley with a pitch, Cabrera singled to centre for a 3-2 lead. The win came after San Diego lost three straight in Tampa Bay, despite holding the lead in the fifth inning or later in each game. "To get to (Johnson) is a great accomplishment for us," Padres manager Bud Black said. "Those are great on the road, they really are, to snatch one back when they took the lead." Johnson hadnt blown a save opportunity since July 27, 2012, against Oakland. His streak of 35 broke the Orioles mark of 34, set in 1997 by Randy Myers. "I really didnt put a whole lot of stock into it," the right-hander said. "It was just something you guys like to talk about." He blamed his reversal of fortune on poor location. "As soon as I got off the field I looked, and pitches were in different spots than theyre normally at," Johnson said. "Its about execution. At this level the talent is too good. You have to execute and tonight I didnt and wasted a good effort from a lot of guys on this team." Cabreras hit was the 60,000th in Padres history. Luke Gregerson (2-2) got the last out in the eighth and Huston Street earned his ninth save. The Padres were 0-18 when trailing after eight innings. Street gave up a game-ending homer in the ninth against Tampa Bay on Saturday, so he was determined to make things right. "The one in Tampa frustrated me more than any save in my life," Street said. "I took a lot of responsibility for not making those pitches. It bugged me, so tonight was one I really wanted." He then said something that Johnson can take to heart. "You can come backk and get it done," Street said. Blake Griffin Jersey. "Thats what this game is all about. Its bouncing back. Its just moving on to the next day and making the next pitch. You make the next pitch and good things will happen." Ryan Flaherty homered for the Orioles, who fell to 18-2 when leading after eight. With the score tied at 1 in the eighth, Flaherty drew a one-out walk from Andrew Cashner and was replaced by pinch-runner Alexi Casilla. After Cashner threw to first base several times to check the runner, Casilla took off for second. The throw from Hundley came up short and bounced into the outfield, allowing Casilla to reach third on the error. Steve Pearce followed with a line-drive single to left to chase Cashner, who matched a career high by working 7 1-3 innings. Orioles starter Chris Tillman allowed one run, four hits and two walks in seven innings. Although the right-hander wasnt involved in the decision, he lowered his ERA to 3.40 and remained unbeaten since April 17. It was the first meeting between the teams since 2010 and first in Baltimore since 2002. The series is tied at 5. Quentin led off the second inning with a drive to left to put the Padres up 1-0. San Diego then loaded the bases with two outs before Tillman struck out Cabrera. Flaherty tied it in the third with an opposite-field fly that dropped into the front row of the left-field seats. It was only the second home run off Cashner in his five starts this season. In the sixth, Quentins bid for another home run was denied by centre fielder Adam Jones, who made a leaping catch at the top of the 7-foot wall.
