    For the second straight night the San Francisco Giants bullpen got the night off. Just as they struggled against Madison Bumgarner on Tuesday, the Padres could not get more than one run against Johnny Cueto who went the distance and pitched the entire game.

    That only run for the Padres came in the bottom of the second inning when Alexei Ramirez got an RBI single, bringing in Brett Wallace to get the Padres on the board 1-0.

    On the mound for the Friars tonight was left handed pitcher Drew Pomeranz. He cruised into the fourth innings without allowing any runs, but then came Hunter Pence. His two-run homer in the fourth broke a string of 18 straight scoreless innings for Pomeranz.

    The Padres extend the Giants winning streak to seven games with this 2-1 loss. The final game of this series will be Wednesday night at Petco Park.
