The Padres moved to 19-29 on the season and sit 10.5 back of first place in the NL West after losing 4-3 to the Giants on the road. The San Francisco Giants needed an extra inning to get it done on Wednesday afternoon, but their win over the San Diego Padres makes their record 9-0 against the Friars this season.

Yangervis Solarte made it a close game with a 2-run, game-tying home run in the 8th inning off of left-handed reliever Josh Osich. James Shields kept the team in the game with yet another quality start, giving us just 2 earned runs over 6 innings pitched.

Matt Kemp finished the game 0-5 and made a defensive mistake in the outfield that led to the Giants scoring a run in the 6th inning, completing a series in which he made several mistakes that led to runs for the opposition or outs for the Padres.

The Padres have off tomorrow and start a new series in Arizona against the Diamondbacks on Friday evening.
