Tommy Medica added a solo homer and Cameron Maybin had two hits
and scored twice for the Padres, who have outscored the Giants 13-2
in the first two games of the series. Hahn (3-1) held the Giants
without a hit through the first four innings and recorded his third
straight win while yielding two runs on four hits and one walk.
Tim Hudson (7-4) allowed six runs (four earned) on nine hits over 5
2/3 innings for San Francisco, which has lost 11 of its last 14
games. The Giants snapped a 14-inning scoreless streak against the
Padres in the fifth when Pablo Sandoval hit a leadoff single and
later scored on Tyler Colvin’s groundout to cut the deficit to 3-1.
Hudson allowed the first four batters to reach base in the sixth
before Maybin singled in a run and Amarista followed with a two-run
single. After the Giants pulled within 6-2 on Buster Posey’s RBI
double in the sixth, Medica answered with a pinch-hit homer off
Javier Lopez in the eighth.
Hudson, who allowed seven runs over 4 2/3 innings in a loss to the
Chicago White Sox in his last start, fell behind early when Maybin
and Amarista began the third inning with back-to-back singles and
Maybin scored on Will Venable’s sacrifice fly. The loss was the
Giants’ first in Hudson’s eight starts at home.
