Yasmani Grandal doubled and had three RBI as the Padres bested the Giants 8-2 on Sunday.
Grandal brought home a run with a sacrifice fly in the sixth inning before belting a two-run double in the seventh. Grandal has now doubled in three straight contests and has scored a run in four straight games. The catcher, who has filled in at first base in Yonder Alonso's absence, is batting a paltry .219/.316/.388 overall this year.
Chris Dominguez hit his first major league home run in Sunday's loss to the Padres.
Dominguez hit 21 home runs with Triple-A Fresno this season, and it took him five at-bats to get his first at the major league level. Despite some pop, the 27-year-old is a non-prospect and won't fill much more than an organizational depth role for the Giants.
Rene Rivera went 2-for-4 with two RBI in a win over the Giants on Sunday.
Rivera had an RBI groundout in the sixth inning, adding a run-scoring single in the seventh as well. Rivera has four RBI over his last two games, giving him 40 RBI on the year. He's moved into an everyday role with Yasmani Grandal manning first base, and Rivera is hitting .252/.319/.431 on the season.
Will Venable went 2-for-5 with two runs scored in Sunday's win over the Giants.
Venable singled and scored in the sixth and seventh innings. The hits were as many as he'd had over his previous 21 at-bats as he's struggled for the majority of the year. Venable owns a .220/.285/.318 line in a season he'd surely like to be over.
Ryan Vogelsong gave up four runs -- two earned -- over five innings in Sunday's loss to the Padres.
Vogelsong was cruising, having allowed just one run through five innings, but he ran into some trouble in the sixth. After two singles and a throwing error, Vogelsong departed and watched as all three inherited runs were allowed to score. He allowed just four hits and a walk over his five innings, striking out five. Vogelsong dropped to 8-12 with the loss and owns a 3.96 ERA heading into his final start of the season. That will come with a shot at some payback, as the Giants welcome the Padres to town next weekend.
