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.

Padres Manager Bruce Bochy entered tonight's game just three wins shy of his 700th career managerial victory. By reaching 700 career wins, Bochy would become the 75th Major League manager to accomplish the feat. The winningest manager in franchise history, Bochy's record currently stands at 697-748 (.482).
The Padres have already tied their win total at home against the Giants from all of 2003 (2-7).
