Angel Pagan and Buster Posey hit solo homers and Brandon Crawford
added a run-scoring single for the Giants. Petit (2-1) struck out
four and gave up three hits without a walk while replacing injured
Petit learned he was starting approximately an hour before the start
after Cain cut his right index finger with a knife. He departed
after 72 pitches and Jean Machi pitched two shutout innings and
Santiago Casilla finished up.
Pagan and Posey each hit first-inning homers off Eric Stults (1-3)
to get the Giants started and San Francisco added three more runs in
the third. Sanchez smacked a two-run single to center to make it 4-0
and Crawford followed with an RBI single to right.
Sanchez hit a sacrifice fly to left in the sixth to make it a
six-run margin. Machi and Casilla then combined to retire all nine
hitters they faced to complete a three-hit shutout.
GAME NOTEBOOK: Cain was injured in the clubhouse kitchen after
batting practice when a knife slipped out of his hand and he gashed
the finger while trying to grab hold of it. … Stults allowed five
runs and seven hits in 2 2/3 innings. … Padres OF Seth Smith struck
out as a pinch hitter in the ninth in his first appearance since
suffering a groin injury last Thursday.
