Padres 7, Giants 2 wire reports

SAN FRANCISCO -- Jesse Hahn learned everything he knows about sports from his father. The San Diego Padres are happy he was paying attention.

Hahn pitched six strong innings, Alexi Amarista drove in three runs on three hits and San Diego handed the stumbling San Francisco Giants their 12th loss in the past 15 games, 7-2 on Tuesday night.

"That's an old school curveball," Padres manager Bud Black said. "It's top to bottom and he has a good feel for it. Not many guys throw it that way, which is a good thing."

Hahn's father, Fred, showed him the grip and he's thrown it the same way ever since.

"I'm throwing it for more strikes now," Hahn said. "I just kept throwing it and got comfortable with it. He showed me in high school. He taught me everything about football, basketball and baseball. He was a pretty good athlete himself."

Will Venable drove in two runs and Hahn (3-1) earned his third straight victory for the Padres, who won their fifth in the past seven games.

"We have a few more guys swinging the bat better," Black said. "We're getting the big hits."

Tim Hudson (7-4) lost for the first time at home this season, allowing six runs -- four earned -- on nine hits over 5 2/3 innings. He walked two and struck out four.

"I felt pretty good," Hudson said. "You have to give them credit. When I made a mistake, they were able to take advantage."

Hudson has allowed a combined 13 runs during his past two starts after giving up 19 in his first 13. Hudson was 6-0 in his first 11 starts against San Diego and has since lost three of four.

"He's elevating the ball more than he'd like," Black said. "His stuff and his pitches all look the same. It's probably location more than anything."

Hahn allowed his first earned run in 18 innings when Pablo Sandoval scurried home on Tyler Corbin's infield groundout in the fifth. He yielded two runs on four hits over six innings. Hahn walked one and struck out a season-high eight.

Hahn retired the first 12 hitters before giving up back-to-back singles to Sandoval and Michael Morse opening the fifth.

Amarista, 1 for 9 against Hudson entering the game, was hitless in his eight previous at bats, though he's 9 for 25 (.360) in his past eight games.

Cameron Maybin added two hits and drove in a run for the Padres.

Hudson got three double plays in the first four innings before a fifth-inning error on rookie Joe Panik, his second of the game, helped the Padres score twice to open a 3-0 lead.

Jake Gobbert, in his first start since being recalled Thursday, singled and Maybin was safe on Panik's miscue. Amarista doubled in a run and Venable, who hit a sacrifice fly in the third, drove in a run on a groundout.

"Those are the situations you have to find a way to push those guys across," Venable said. "The easy job is putting the ball in play after some great at bats."

Amarista singled home a pair of runs and Maybin delivered an RBI single. Tommy Medica added a pinch-hit home run, the first of his career, with two outs in the eighth.

Buster Posey doubled home a run in the bottom of the sixth to make it 6-2.
