SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Mat Latos allowed just a single that deflected off him for a one-hitter and drove in the lone run, leading the first-place San Diego Padres to their second sweep of the San Francisco Giants this season with a 1-0 victory Thursday.

Latos (3-3) retired the first 15 batters and increased his scoreless innings streak to 18 as the Padres swept the Giants in their waterfront ballpark for the first time since May 27-29, 2005. He didn't allow a baserunner until Eli Whiteside barely beat out an infield single leading off the sixth. The comebacker hit off Latos' glove hand and bounced toward shortstop. Chase Headley's throw to first wasn't in time.

The Padres moved 3½ games ahead of the Giants in the NL West and wrapped up an impressive 5-1 road trip, improving to 6-0 this season against San Francisco. San Diego has won 10 of the last 13 in the rivalry.
