    Padres starter Andrew Cashner did not single-handedly beat the Giants 2-1 on Friday night.

    But he sure as heck tried to.

    Cashner allowed just one run in six innings of work, striking out five batters in a Padres win, their second in a row.

    But his work on the mound was not even as impressive as his work on offense. Cashner got his second career hit, a line drive single off 2-time Cy Young Award winner Tim Lincecum, no less. Then he stole second base for his first career steal. Then he scored on a Carlos Quentin single for his first career run.

    All-in-all, not a bad night in the big leagues.

    Quentin has driven in a run in all three games he's played since coming off his 8-game suspension.

    On Saturday, the Padres send LHP Eric Stults against LHP Barry Zito. San Diego is looking for its second 3-game winning streak of the season.
