SAN FRANCISCO, June 1 (UPI) -- A three-run, 10th-inning rally that featured a triple by Fred Lewis and a fielding mistake boosted San Francisco to a 4-3 win Sunday over the San Diego Padres.

Lewis, pinch-hitting, drove in two runs to tie the game with his hit off the right field wall.

San Diego then intentionally walked a batter to get runners at the corners, setting up a potential double play. Jose Castillo hit a grounder to Padres' shortstop Edgar Gonzalez, who hesitated, making no throw, while Lewis dashed home with the winning run. Castillo was credited with an infield single.

Adrian Gonzalez had hit a two-run homer to put San Diego ahead 3-1 in the top of the 10th.

The Giants have won seven of their last 11 games.

Alex Hinshaw (1-0) got his first major league win despite giving up Gonzalez' homer.

Trevor Hoffman (0-4), victim of the Giants' 10th inning rally, took the loss.
