The Padres beat the Giants 8-7 in 12 innings on Saturday night. It's just the second time this season they've strung together 3 straight wins.

It's also the 3rd straight game they've won by one run.

San Diego fell behind 5-0 but in the 4th inning the Padres offense went bonkers. They scored six runs to knock Barry Zito out of the game. Chris Denorfia had the big blow, a 2-run double to tie the game at 5. He scored on an Everth Cabrera single.

The 6-run outburst is the most the Padres have scored in an inning this season. Actually, they had only scored 6 or more runs in 4 games coming in to the game.

The game went to the 12th inning tied at 7. Yonder Alonso smacked a double, his third of the game, and eventually scored when Nick Hundley hit a rocket that Giants 2nd baseman Marco Scutaro mishandled.

The Padres go for the sweep Sunday afternoon with Jason Marquis on the hill against Ryan Vogelsong.
