SAN DIEGO - Carlos Quentin hit one of San Diego's four home runs and drove in three runs as the Padres routed Barry Zito and the San Francisco Giants 10-1 on Sunday, a day after being no-hit by Tim Lincecum.
Nick Hundley had a homer among his three hits and Chris Denorfia and Will Venable also went deep as the Padres avoided a four-game sweep by the defending World Series champions heading into the All-Star break.
The Padres had been outscored 23-3 in the first three games of the series, including a 9-0 loss Saturday night when Lincecum threw his first career no-hitter. San Diego won for just the fourth time in 20 games.
Zito (4-7), who went to high school in San Diego, had another road misadventure.
