Brandon Crawford has 3 hits, leads Giants to a 6-4 win over Padres
PEORIA, Ariz. – Brandon Crawford had three hits and an RBI, leading a San Francisco Giants split squad to a 6-4 victory over the San Diego Padres on Wednesday.
The Padres hoped starter Andrew Cashner would get into the fourth inning with less that 40 pitches, but he didn't make it through the third — he threw 31 pitches in the first. But Cashner only gave up one run on three hits. He struck out four in his second start of spring training.
Giants starter Chad Gaudin pitched three innings and gave up two runs on seven hits. He had two strike outs.
Left fielder Gregor Blanco had two hits, including a perfectly placed bunt single. Padres catcher John Baker also had two hits.
The Giants other squad played a 0-0, 10-inning ties against Milwaukee.
