SAN DIEGO (AP) - Matt Cain pitched eight dominating innings and the San Francisco Giants scored eight runs in the third inning to move into first place in the NL West with a 10-1 win over the San Diego Padres on Friday night.
Cain (12-5), who pitched a perfect game on June 13, surrendered one run on four hits. The right-hander didn't allow his first hit until Yonder Alonso's one-out double in the fifth. San Francisco moved one-half game ahead of the Los Angeles Dodgers, who lost at Atlanta.
Marco Scutaro homered and drove in two runs and Angel Pagan had three hits and two RBIs to lead the Giants' 15-hit attack. Scutaro hit a solo homer in the first inning before San Francisco's seasoh-high scoring output in the third off Ross Ohlendorf (4-4) and reliever Nick Mikolas.
