• Padres knock Giants out of of NL West lead

    Summary of 2 articles · Updated Aug 19, 2012
    The Giants dropped out of first in the NL West and trail the Dodgers by a half-game heading into their big three-game series in Los Angeles. Richard threw a commanding eight innings and Maybin drove in three runs as the San Diego Padres snapped a five-game losing streak with a 7-1 win over the San Francisco Giants on Sunday. There's no denying the fact that Giants pitcher Ryan Vogelsong expended a lot of energy, time and sweat in a start on a muggy Sunday afternoon that saw him burn through 96 pitches in three-plus innings. But Cabrera's 13-pitch at-bat on all fastballs against Ryan Vogelsong leading off the first inning drew a lot of credit for San Diego's success.
