Nate McLouth looked at strike three after swinging at ball four, as Brooks Conrad took off and was easily thrown out at second. Alex Gonzalez finished the inning by fouling out. In the top half of the inning, Hanson battled through a couple of hits, with some help of slick glovework by Alex Gonzalez, to get out unscathed.
Meanwhile, the Padres are taking advantage of Barry Zito and the Giants, taking a 3-0 lead going to the bottom of the third following a Pablo Sandoval throwing error. Zito’s first two runs were both walked in-the Giants have yet to mount any kind of offense against Tim Stauffer.
