The wins just keep on coming, with the Padres celebrating Independence Day with a season-best five game winning streak. Speaking of season bests, starter Eric Stults had his best game of the year, shutting out the Giants for seven innings. San Francisco only managed 4 hits and a pair of walks off the crafty lefty, while the home team hit up Matt Cain for 7 hits and 3 walks in his 6.1 innings of work.

The only runs of the afternoon came in the bottom of the third inning. Alexi Amarista launched some early fireworks, hitting his second home run of the year to right field. The recently extended Seth Smith followed up with a double in the same direction before scoring on a single by Chase Headley. After Stults finished his day, Joaquin Benoit and Huston Street took over, each tossing a perfect inning. Street retired the side in order to pick up his 23rd save of the year.

Odrisamer Despaigne will try to continue the winning streak tomorrow at 4:15 PM.
