Kouzmanoff Goes 4-for-5 With 3-Run Homer In Padres Win Over Giants

By  | 

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - Kevin Kouzmanoff and Eliezer Alfonzo hit three-run homers, Will Venable also homered and set a career-high with four hits, and the San Diego Padres beat the San Francisco Giants 10-4 to snap a season-high seven-game losing streak.

Kevin Correia pitched five-plus strong innings for his career-best sixth win of the season, while Luis Rodriguez drove in a pair of runs for the Padres, who broke out of a monthlong slump to set a season-high for scoring.

San Diego, which had scored just six runs total its previous four games, had that many in the first three innings off San Francisco starter Barry Zito. Kouzmanoff and Alfonzo both homered off the Giants left-hander, who was tagged with his team-leading ninth loss of the season.
