Struggles continue vs. Padres

Struggles continue vs. Padres · Notes, Quotes · Roster Report

A change of venue did the Giants no good. They moved from Los Angeles to San Diego and still lost.

Aubrey Huff was back in right field after making several sloppy defensive plays at Dodger Stadium, but he wasn't the culprit this time, though he did go 0-for-3 to lower his average to .211. This time, it was more about the offense not doing its job against Aaron Harang and Co. in a 3-1 Giants loss.

Their only run came in the first inning when Andres Torres singled, stole second and advanced the rest of the way on two groundouts. But in the third, with runners at second and third and no outs, both Torres and Freddy Sanchez struck out. After a walk to Huff, Buster Posey was retired on a comebacker -- following a couple of iffy strikes that Posey thought were balls.

For much of last season, the Padres were the Giants' nemesis. The Giants lost 12 of 18 to their San Diego counterparts but beat the Padres in the division race, winning the NL West by two games.

In the first game between the teams in 2011, Madison Bumgarner gave up all three runs in the third inning, and that was plenty on a night the Giants offense took a breather.
