SAN FRANCISCO - Juan Perez hit a tiebreaking single with two outs in the eighth inning and the San Francisco Giants beat San Diego 5-4 on Tuesday night, snapping the Padres' seven-game winning streak.
Perez's clutch swing came after pinch hitter Jesus Guzman gave San Diego a 4-3 lead with a two-run homer in the top half of the inning
Buster Posey started the San Francisco comeback with a leadoff single. After Hunter Pence struck out, Brandon Belt doubled in pinch runner Andres Torres. Nick Noonan was intentionally walked and Joaquin Arias lined out to center before Perez rolled a single just past second baseman Logan Forsythe for the go-ahead score.
Belt finished with three hits to help the Giants move into a second-place tie with Colorado in the NL West.
