SAN DIEGO (AP) — Carlos Quentin hit one of San Diego's four home runs and drove in three runs as the Padres routed Barry Zito and the San Francisco Giants 10-1 on Sunday, a day after being no-hit by Tim Lincecum.

Nick Hundley had a homer among his three hits and Chris Denorfia and Will Venable also went deep as the Padres avoided a four-game sweep by the defending World Series champions heading into the All-Star break.

The Padres had been outscored 23-3 in the first three games of the series, including a 9-0 loss Saturday night when Lincecum threw his first career no-hitter. San Diego won for just the fourth time in 20 games.

Zito (4-7), who went to high school in San Diego, had another road misadventure. He was chased without getting an out in the third inning and dropped to 0-6 with a 9.89 ERA in eight road starts. The Giants are 0-8 in his road starts. He allowed four runs and four hits while walking two and striking out none.

Zito gave up San Diego's first three homers. Denorfia hit a solo shot an estimated 417 feet into the second deck in left field with one out in the first while Hundley and Venable connected back-to-back with two outs in the second. It was the third time the Padres hit consecutive homers this season.

It was Denorfia's seventh, Hundley's sixth and Venable's 11th.

Quentin's two-run homer with two outs in the fifth hit the balcony on the second level of the Western Metal Supply Co. brick warehouse in the left-field corner. It was his 12th and came off George Kontos. Everth Cabrera was aboard on a walk.

Quentin also hit an RBI double in the four-run third. Hundley and Venable hit consecutive RBI singles that inning.

San Diego lefty Eric Stults (8-7) allowed one run and five hits in six innings, struck out five and walked two.

All-Star Marco Scutaro singled in San Francisco's only run, in the first.

NOTES: The cap Lincecum wore in his no-hitter is on its way to the Hall of Fame. Giants officials will probably also send a ball from the game. ... Giants closer Sergio Romo was added to the NL All-Star team by his manager, Bruce Bochy. He'll join teammates Buster Posey, Madison Bumgarner and Scutaro at New York's Citi Field on Tuesday night. ... San Diego's lone representative is Cabrera.
