Luke Gregerson (4-3) entered and pinch-hitter Hector Sanchez singled, sending Abreu to third. Gregor Blanco, hitting for Andres Torres, then belted a pitch to the base of the wall in right-center field for a two-run triple.

Jesus Guzman and Wil Venable each homered for the Padres in a game that featured a bench-clearing incident in the second inning when Bumgarner threw a pitch behind Guzman.
