Padres fall to Penny and Giants, 9-4

Posted: Updated:
Juan Uribe homered twice, tripled and drove in five runs as Brad Penny dazzled again to win his home debut to lead the San Francisco Giants over the San Diego Padres 9-4 on Monday.

The Giants remained two games back of the Rockies in the NL wild-card race after Colorado beat Cincinnati.

Penny (2-0) didn't give up a hit until Will Venable's triple leading off the fifth. The Padres certainly didn't want a repeat of Jonathan Sanchez's improbable no-hitter against them here on July 10.
