Deja vu: Padres beat Giants, 5-3

Jul 6, 2011 - 7:09 AM San Francisco, CA (Sports Network) - Cameron Maybin went 3-for-4 with three RBI, including a go-ahead, two-run triple in the sixth inning that pushed the Padres past the Giants, 5-3.

Anthony Rizzo knocked in a pair of runs for the Padres, who survived a so-so ninth-inning appearance from Heath Bell to win by the same margin as they won the opener of this four-game series.

Tim Stauffer (5-5) evened his record by allowing three runs -- two earned -- on eight hits over six innings to earn the win.

Matt Cain (7-5) lost for the first time since May 29 after yielding five runs on seven hits in seven frames. The Giants dropped their third straight game despite recording 11 hits, though none went for extra bases.

Cain helped his own cause with a go-ahead RBI single in the fourth, but the All-Star hurler gave up three two-out runs in the sixth.

Chase Headley doubled with one away and Orlando Hudson worked a two-out walk before Maybin chased them both home with a triple to the left-field gap. Rizzo followed with a base hit to left for a 5-3 game.

"We got timely hitting," Stauffer said. "Luckily we had that big inning and were able to keep them out of the big inning."

Andres Torres was tagged out at home trying to score on Chad Qualls' wild pitch to end the seventh, then struck out with runners on second and third and one out in the ninth.

Bell, who gave up two singles to start the inning, got Brandon Crawford to fly out to right to post his 26th save of the season.

"Tomorrow is another day. You have to keep moving forward. That's part of the game," Torres said.

San Francisco scored twice in its opening at-bat, the first coming when Crawford hit a line drive that ate up Rizzo at first. The ball bounced into the outfield, where Hudson kicked it around long enough to allow Torres to score from first. Crawford advanced to second on the error and eventually crossed home on Aaron Rowand's two-out single.

The Padres also took advantage of an error in the second, as Ryan Ludwick scored on a Maybin groundout and Hudson came in on Crawford's misplay on a ball hit by Rizzo.
