SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Fernando Tatis Jr. hit a three-run homer in the third, Wil Myers added a two-run drive an inning later, and the San Diego Padres spoiled San Francisco’s home opener by beating the Giants 5-3 on Tuesday night.
Zach Davies (1-0) struck out five over five innings to win his Padres debut, allowing five hits and three runs – two earned – as San Diego won for the fourth time in five games this season. The right-hander came over in a trade with Milwaukee last November.
Drew Pomeranz, the Padres’ fourth reliever, finished for his first save.
Wilmer Flores hit an RBI single in the first and Tyler Heineman singled home one of San Francisco’s two runs in the sixth. That wasn’t enough support for Jeff Samardzija (0-1), done after giving up five runs in four innings.
