Giants Vs. Padres, Final Score: Brandon Crawford Walks Off For 3-2 Giants Win, Lose Pablo Sandoval To Injury

After the 7-1 drubbing the San Francisco Giants laid on the San Diego Padres Monday night, Tuesday's matchup was much more like a Pads-Giants battle of old. It went down to the wire once again as Brandon Crawford's walk-off single in the bottom of the ninth lifted the Black and Orange by the score of 3-2 at AT&T Park, though San Francisco unfortunately lost Pablo Sandoval to injury.

The Giants offense got it started in the first inning with an RBI groundout from Melky Cabrera, followed by a Pablo Sandoval RBI double to make it 2-0 early. The Padres tied it up with a pair of ribbies from Jesus Guzman and Edinson Volquez, than the injury bug bit the Giants once more.

While stretching to make a double play in the third inning, Pablo would injure his left hamstring and come out of the game. Brandon Belt would come in, whom was getting some off time as part of his current slump at the plate. It was only Pablo's third start there this season. He's set to have an MRI on Wednesday.

Madison Bumgarner was solid once again, lasting seven innings of six-hit ball with nine strikeouts. San Diego's Edinson Volquez was just as good, also lasting seven innings though allowing just three hits with eight strikeouts.

The Padres were looking to strike in the eighth though a terrific diving grab from Angel Pagan followed by a terrific relay to double off the runner at first closed that door, but opened another to start the winning rally. After a walk and a single from Belt and Pagan, A passed ball advanced the runners. Than it was Brandon Crawford's turn, slapping a single to center, driving in the winning run.

Santiago Casilla would get the win, while San Diego's Joe Thatcher would take the loss.

After wrapping up yet another series, San Francisco goes for the sweep on Wednesday as Tim Lincecum takes the bump to square off as Jason Marquis. First pitch is set for 12:45 p.m. PT with coverage on CSN Bay Area and KNBR 680 AM.
