Final Score: San Diego 7, San Francisco 2
San Francisco, CA (SportsNetwork.com) - Alexi Amarista went 3-for-4 with three
RBI to lead the San Diego Padres to a 7-2 win over the San Francisco Giants in
the second of three from AT&T Park.
Tommy Medica homered and Will Venable drove in two for the Padres, who have
taken the first two of this series.
"Alexi is getting a little crispy" said Padres manager Bud Black. "It helps
that he's in there and getting at-bats. He's swinging the bat well. He is
swinging aggressive, he's playing his game."
Jesse Hahn (3-1) was perfect through four innings and earned the win after
giving up two runs on four hits with a career-high eight strikeouts over six
Tim Hudson (7-4) took the loss, allowing six runs -- four earned -- on nine
hits over 5 2/3 innings.
Hudson entered the game with a 5-0 mark and a 2.16 ERA at AT&T Park and the
Giants hadn't lost in his seven home outings until Tuesday.
Buster Posey and Tyler Colvin each had an RBI for San Francisco, which dropped
its eighth game in its last 10 overall and fifth straight at home.
"I think it's fair to say that (pitching) is our biggest issue right now,"
said Giants manager Bruce Bochy. "It's important to come out of this and our
starting pitching is going to get us out of this."
Cameron Maybin and Amarista singled to open the third and Amarista advanced to
second on a throw to third in an attempt to get Maybin. Venable came up two
batters later and drove in Maybin with a sacrifice fly.
Amarista's double in the fifth brought home Jake Goebbert; then Venable
knocked in Maybin again with a groundout to make it a 3-0 game.
Colvin's RBI groundout got a run back in the home half of the fifth, but San
Diego answered with three in the sixth.
Maybin singled with the bases loaded to score Chase Headley and Amarista
followed with a two-run single that opened up the lead.
Posey doubled home Gregor Blanco in the bottom of the sixth to cut the deficit
Medica crushed a homer to left in the eighth in a pinch-hit role to account
for the final margin.
Alex Torres, Dale Thayer and Blaine Boyer tossed three innings of scoreless
relief, allowing just one hit to secure the win.
Giants outfielder Angel Pagan (back) missed his eighth straight game ...
Headley returned after missing four straight games with a back injury. He went
1-for-4 in the win ... The Padres had 12 hits ... Second baseman Joe Panik
committed two errors for San Francisco ... The Giants went 0-for-5 with
