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. Street allowed his first home runs of 2012 and suffered his first blown save and loss of the season as the Giants scored three times against him in the ninth for a 7-5 win. Street gave up ninth-inning homers to Xavier Nady and Hunter Pence, handing Street his first loss and first blown save in 24 chances over 40 appearances. Street's ERA jumped from 1.18 to 1.85 -- although is ERA has taken a hit in each of his three outings since he returned from missing six weeks with a left calf strain. Before he went on the disabled list Aug. 11, Street had a 0.75 ERA. Since his return, he has allowed five runs on six hits -- including the first two homers he has allowed since August 2011 -- and three walks in three innings. "I'm making as many good pitches as before," Street said. "I'm just getting beat on my mistakes. Before the injury, I was probably as sharp as I have ever been."
