SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - Cuban defector Odrisamer Despaigne pitched seven innings in his major league debut to lead the San Diego Padres to a 6-0 victory over the San Francisco Giants on Monday night.

Tommy Medica hit a two-run double off Matt Cain (1-6) after the umpires took away a three-run home run by Yasmani Grandal on a replay review to give the crafty Despaigne (1-0) the support he needed to get the win.

Despaigne had a 6.03 ERA in seven minor league starts in his first season as a professional after defecting from Cuba last summer. But he kept the Giants off-balance all game by changing his arm angle and mixing in big, slow curveballs with his harder pitches.

Despaigne allowed four hits and no walks in place of the injured Andrew Cashner, who was placed on the disabled list with a sore shoulder earlier in the day.

The Giants lost for the 10th time in 13 games.
