#2 The Padres scored four runs in each of the second and eighth innings help pile on the Giants they even got a two run triple from Trent Grisham in the eighth inning to contribute to the run total.

#3 Giants starter Johnny Cueto who returned from lat tightness in the arm was lit up upon his return from the injured list going just three innings giving up eight hits and three runs.
