Padres beat Giants 3-1, improve to .500 record

Denis Poroy

Aside from a Mike Morse home run to centerfield, Eric Stults didn't give the Giants much to hit tonight.  He kept his team in the game for 6 innings and as luck would have it everything came up Padres. They slashed and dashed their way to a second consecutive win over the Giants, a .500 record and 7 wins in the last 10 games.

In the second inning Seth Smith hit a single and was driven in by Yonder Alonso giving the Padres an early lead.  As previously mentioned Morse tied the game in the 5th. The tie didn't last long however.  Everth Cabrera hit an RBI triple in the Padres half of the the 5th to put them back in the lead for good. The Padres added a showoff run in the 8th when Chris Denorfia laid down a squeeze bunt that scored Will Venable. Joaquin Benoit came in to close out his first save of the year and his first ever in the National League.
