San Francisco Giants top San Diego Padres 4-2; SD starter Andrew Cashner gives up 2-run double

Quentin made his first start of spring in LF

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. - Marco Scutaro came up with a rare play, taking an extra base after a walk Tuesday as the San Francisco Giants beat the San Diego Padres 4-2.

Scutaro, the MVP of last year's NL championship series, drew a two-out walk in the third inning. He sprinted to first, then kept going and stole second.

Hunter Pence hit a two-run double that broke a tie in the fifth. The hit came off San Diego starter Andrew Cashner.

Brandon Belt, who missed the last two games with a strained neck, returned to action and had three hits for the Giants, raising his average to .453.

Carlos Quentin made his first start of the spring in left field for the Padres after dealing with soreness in his right knee in the aftermath of offseason surgery. He said he felt good and hopes to continue to make progress toward the April 1 opener against the Mets in New York.

Logan Forsythe, expected to play third while Padres star Chase Headley heals from a fractured thumb, has had health issues of his own -- plantar fasciitis in his right foot. He played three innings on Tuesday.
