Final Score: San Francisco 3, San Diego 2
San Francisco, CA (SportsNetwork.com) - Tim Hudson spun 8 2/3 strong innings
to guide the San Francisco Giants to a 3-2 win over the San Diego Padres in
the rubber match of a three-game set.
Hudson (4-1) allowed two runs on five hits and struck out six without issuing
a walk to pick up his second straight win. Sergio Romo recorded the final out
of the game to pick up his seventh save of the season.
"I was able to get down in the strike zone and stay down in the zone, work
ahead in the count," Hudson said. "Guys were making some good plays behind me.
It was a fun night for us."
Buster Posey went 2-for-4 with an RBI and Brandon Hicks hit a solo homer for
the Giants, winners in six of their last seven games.
Yasmani Grandal went 2-for-4 with a solo home run and Alexi Amarista added an
RBI for the Padres, who have dropped two straight.
"We're battling, we're playing hard, we're not swinging the bats," Padres
manager Bud Black said. "I'd like to think that our average will come up. The
pitching's been outstanding overall. The bullpen's been solid, and the
starters pretty much have done their part. We've got to get the bats going."
Robbie Erlin (1-3) allowed all three runs on eight hits over 6 2/3 innings to
absorb the loss.
The Padres pushed a run across in both the first and second innings to take an
early 2-0 edge.
In the first, Hunter Pence singled and stole second before scoring on Michael
Morse's double to right.
Hicks led off the second with a homer to right.
In the seventh, Joaquin Arias singled and moved to second on Hudson's
sacrifice bunt. After Juan Perez grounded out, Pence singled to put runners on
the corners and Posey followed with an RBI single to center for a 3-0 margin.
San Diego got on the board in the eighth as Cameron Maybin scored on
Grandal added a homer with two outs in the ninth to pull the Padres within 3-2
and knock Hudson out of the game, but Romo got Chris Denorfia to ground out to
seal the win.
Game time: 2:17 ... Hudson has held opponents to two or fewer earned runs in
five of his six starts this season ... Hudson has gone at least seven innings
in all six starts this season ... San Fran was 3-for-11 with RISP ... The
Padres finished 0-for-4 with RISP.
