Padres 10, Giants 1 wire reports

SAN DIEGO -- The San Diego Padres were an angry bunch after getting no-hit by Tim Lincecum on Saturday night and losing for the 18th time in 21 games.

Being mad only goes so far, though.

The Padres found their long-lost hitting and pitching and rebounded by routing Barry Zito and the San Francisco Giants 10-1 on Sunday.

Carlos Quentin hit one of San Diego's four home runs and drove in three runs. Nick Hundley had a home run among his three hits and Chris Denorfia and Will Venable also went deep as the Padres avoided a four-game sweep by the defending World Series champions heading into the All-Star break.

"Yesterday was not good. When you get no-hit and you're in the streak we've been, it's not a good feeling," manager Bud Black. "The guys were angry. The guys have been angry. But anger doesn't get you wins. You know what gets your wins? Making pitches and getting hits. Anger doesn't do it."

Quentin agreed.

"Obviously as players and competitors we're not happy with losing, and that's why it's been difficult," he said. "But baseball's a unique game where emotion plays some part, but not as much as in other sports. You can go and try as hard as you can out there and still not have what you want to happen, happen."

The Padres had been outscored 23-3 in the first three games of the series, including a 9-0 loss Saturday night when Lincecum threw his first career no-hitter. The Padres, who had a promising turnaround derailed by a 10-game losing streak, won for only the fourth time in 20 games.

Zito (4-7), who went to high school in San Diego, had another road misadventure. He was chased without getting an out in the third inning and dropped to 0-6 with a 9.89 ERA in eight road starts. The Giants are 0-8 in his road starts. He allowed four runs and four hits while walking two and striking out none.

"My concentration wasn't where it should be," Zito said. "I threw too many pitches on the middle of the plate. The three homers is an indication of that."

Zito gave up San Diego's first three home runs. Denorfia hit a solo shot an estimated 417 feet into the second deck in left field with one out in the first while Hundley and Venable connected back-to-back with two outs in the second. It was the third time the Padres hit back-to-back home runs this season.

It was Denorfia's seventh, Hundley's sixth and Venable's 11th.

"When I'm at my best, I'm really pitch to pitch and I think sometimes when I scuffle it's because I'm just getting out of the moment," Zito said.

Quentin's two-run homer with two outs in the fifth hit the balcony on the second level of the Western Metal Supply Co. brick warehouse in the left-field corner. It was his 12th and came off George Kontos. Everth Cabrera was aboard on a walk.

Quentin also hit an RBI double in the four-run third. Hundley and Venable hit consecutive RBI singles that inning.

The last time the Padres got solid hitting and pitching in the same game was June 28, when they won 9-2 at Miami, the first game of a nine-game road trip. The Padres then lost their next 10 games.

"In between we've all witnessed some offense that has been lackluster, to say the least, and also some pitching that has been less than formidable," Black said. "We've got to combine those. This is just one game where it happened."

San Diego lefty Eric Stults (8-7) allowed one run and five hits in six innings, struck out five and walked two.

Andres Torres hit a leadoff single and scored San Francisco's only run on All-Star Marco Scutaro's single.


The cap Lincecum wore in his no-hitter is on its way to the Hall of Fame. Giants officials will probably also send a ball from the game. ... Giants closer Sergio Romo was added to the NL All-Star team by his manager, Bruce Bochy. He'll join teammates Buster Posey, Madison Bumgarner and Scutaro at New York's Citi Field on Tuesday night. ... San Diego's lone representative is Cabrera. ... Padres LHP Colt Hynes made his big league debut, pitching a perfect ninth. He was selected from Triple-A Tucson before the game. To make room, the Padres optioned RHP Brad Brach to Tucson.
