SAN DIEGO (AP) - There were two rarities at Petco Park Friday night - a 51-minute rain delay and the San Diego Padres popping above .500.
Scott Hairston hit a three-run homer, Brian Giles drove in two runs and the Padres jumped on Barry Zito early to beat the San Francisco Giants 7-3.
It's the first time the Padres (3-2) are above .500 since they were 8-7 last April 16. San Diego finished 63-99 last year, 21 games behind the NL West-winning Los Angeles Dodgers.
Shawn Hill (1-0) won his Padres debut while Zito (0-1) lasted only four innings in his season debut.
