Villanueva's walk-off single gives Padres win over D'Backs

SAN DIEGO (AP) Christian Villanueva had a hard time walking, yet still managed to get a walk-off hit.

Villanueva, who fouled a ball off his foot on Friday night, had a walk-off pinch-hit single in the ninth inning, and the San Diego Padres ended a five-game skid with a 7-6 win over the Arizona Diamondbacks on Saturday night.

"The manager had asked me if I was good to go, and I took a few swings in the batting cage and said I could do it," Villanueva said through a translator. "It's a dream come true to be able to hit a walk-off up here at the big league level. It's something I've always wanted to do."
