SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. (AP) - 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.
