The Padres lost their last home game of the year on Sunday, also losing their fourth consecutive series as their season comes to a close. Huston Streets first blown save of the season ended with their sixth loss in the last 10 games. The Giants beat the Padres 3-1 on Friday before the Padres answered back with a convincing 7-3 win on Saturday. But Huston Street surrendered both a game tying and go-ahead homer in the ninth on Sunday to give the Giants a 7-5 win. The Padres will wrap up the season starting Monday in Milwaukee with a three game series at Miller Park. Below is a recap of their final home series at Petco Park against the San Francisco Giants.   Friday, September 28th, 2012 Giants 3, Padres 1 WP Ryan Vogelsong (14-9) 6IP 5H 1R 0ER 1BB 4K 0HR LP Andrew Werner (2-3) 4.2IP 8H 3R 3ER 1BB 2K 0HR S Santiago Casilla (25) 0.2IP 2H 0R 0ER 0BB 0K 0HR Andrew Werner had another rough outing as he gave up three runs and eight hits, unable to finish the fifth inning.

Padres' Street endures first blown save of season

San Diego Padres right-handed closer Huston Street said he's not one to think much about good or bad outings. "In my opinion, it is a waste of time to focus on the past for more than a few minutes," said Street. "Focus on what you can do moving forward." That might be an excellent philosophy given what happened in the ninth inning Sunday at Petco Park...

93 Wins, Tim Lincecum, and the Postseason Roster

Greetings from the Petco Park press box, where hahahahahahaha I can’t believe the Giants actually won that game. Okay, sorry, I’ll pull myself together — I just watched the Giants wrap up their 159th game of the season. They pulled off a pretty spectacular comeback win, but Tim Lincecum pitched poorly (more on that later); and this was my last chance to see the 2012 Giants...

Daily Friar 10.1.12

And that concludes Padres home games for 2012. It would have been nice to end the homestand on a high note, but I guess it just wasn't meant to be. Huston Street has not looked the same since coming back from the calf injury, and that was extremely apparent yesterday. He hadn't given up a home run all season until yesterday when he gave up two. This ultimately doomed the...

SF Giants Rumors: Final Series, Rotation and Pence

Tonight starts the San Francisco Giants final series of the 2012 regular season. The good thing is it’s against the rival Dodgers (should make these games exciting) in Los Angeles, and the even better thing is the Giants can officially knock the Dodgers out of the Wild Card race with a win tonight! Tim Lincecum has come off back-to-back shaky outings, but says he’s been told...

What Should The Giants Do With Tim Lincecum In October?

by Hannah Miller, special to 22gigantes.com It might be a bit hard to think that a two-time Cy Young Award winner still in his 20s might not be an integral part of a team’s playoff push. However, Tim Lincecum has had an overall rough 2012 campaign. In fact, during the first half of the season, he was one of the worst starting pitchers in all of baseball. Even though he has turned...

Padres 7, Giants 3

Chase Headley hit his 30th home run and had three RBIs to tie Ryan Braun for the NL lead with 112 and the San Diego Padres beat Buster Posey and the NL West champion San Francisco Giants 7-3 on Saturday night. Posey, who started at catcher a night after being hit in the throat with a wild pitch, went 2 for 2 with a to raise his average to .337 and increase his lead in the NL batting...

Daily Friar 9.29.12

It must be getting close to the end of the season because the news is hard to come by with the Padres of late. The MLB world only cares about winning teams, and since the Padres are not winning right now there is no news here apparently. Of course I have come to expect this come the offseason, but not with a week left to play. I thought we would still have some stuff to talk about...

The Giants and 96 wins

Before this season began, I pegged the Giants to win anywhere from 88 to 90 wins in 2012. Despite Buster Posey back and the starting five looking dominant as ever, I thought they would still struggle to compete with the Arizona Diamondbacks for the top spot in the NL West. Boy, things are looking a little different. The Giants have three games left this season – all agaisnt the...

Lincecum says he will be in Giants' playoff rotation

Looks like Tim Lincecum is in the San Francisco Giants' playoff rotation. So says Timmy himself. The two-time Cy Young Award winner delivered the news in his postgame Q&A with reporters on Sunday after the Giants beat the Padres 7-5. Lincecum gave up three homers and didn't look sharp, but he looked sharper than in his previous start. And that apparently was enough...

San Francisco Giants Haze Rookies By Forcing Them to Dress Up in Spandex Suits (Photo)

It's hazing time, rookies. Days after the Rays dressed their rookies like women -- and forced them to sing "Call Me, Maybe" -- the Giants forced their rookies to dress up in spandex suits for their last road trip of the season. More #SFGiants Rookies.San Diego, here we come twitter.com/SFGiants/statu… — San Francisco Giants (@SFGiants) September 27, 2012 Needless...

Tim Lincecum will be part of Giants playoff rotation

It was not the best season for San Fransisco Giants pitcher Time Lincecum but the two time Cy Young award winner will be a part of the rotation when the playoffs begin. Lincecum was better after the all-star break compiling a 7-5 record to go with a 3.83 ERA and a .243 batting average against. “He’s tough mentally,” manager Bruce Bochy said. “He finds a way.” The San Jose...

Giants 7, Padres 5

Pinch hitter Xavier Nady homered off Huston Street to tie the game with one out in the ninth and Hunter Spence hit a go-ahead, two-run shot as the San Francisco Giants rallied to beat the San Diego Padres 7-5 Sunday. The stunning rally got Tim Lincecum off the hook for the loss, but the righty still had his second straight shaky start for the NL West champion Giants. Lincecum allowed...

Giants rally in 9th to beat Padres

SAN DIEGO -- Xavier Nady, who has struggled all season, first with the Washington Nationals, then with the San Francisco Giants, slugged a pinch-hit home run to tie the game in the ninth inning and Hunter Pence followed with a two-run shot as the Giants rallied from three runs down after seven innings to beat the San Diego Padres 7-5 Sunday afternoon. The Giants, who scored two...
