Giles showing his speed, and a miscommunication on the Giants part, slid safely into third as the throw went awry, hitting Giles in the back and allowing Giles to come home to score the third run.
Jason Szuminski debuted on Sunday and got Barry Bonds to fly out. One run crossed the plate on a bases loaded walk, but it was unearned.

The Padres have already tied their win total at home against the Giants from all of 2003 (2-7).
