NL West opponents San Diego and San Francisco will meet at PETCO Park.

With speculation still floating that the Giants could move the 29-year-old Bumgarner before Wednesday's trade deadline, Bumgarner improved to 6-7 on the season as the still-surging Giants defeated the Padres 7-6 in the rubber match of the three-game series. Lucchesi struck out Samardzija, retired Solano on an infield fly and got Brandon Belt to ground out.In the bottom of the fifth, Hedges drove a 2-0 fastball from Samardzija 419 feet onto the second balcony of the Western Metal Supply Co. building in left. Sandoval's 13th-inning homer Tuesday gave the Giants a 5-4, walk-off win over the Chicago Cubs.On Friday, Sandoval's 13th homer of the season came on a 1-2 pitch from Logan Allen (2-3).

Yastrzemski singled off Luis Perdomo (1-3) opening the sixth, advanced on Bumgarner's sacrifice and scored the go-ahead run on Donovan Solano's single to center.

One of those was against the Padres on July 3, when he allowed four runs off eight hits in only four innings.

Will Smith picked up his 26th save despite giving up a two-run homer to Wil Myers with two out in the ninth. And former Padre Alex Dickerson had the game-tying RBI single as a pinch-hitter in the fourth and scored in the ninth. Solano would finish 2-for-3 with two walks, two RBIs and a run; Yastrzemski 4-for-5 with two runs, two RBIs and one massive defensive play. The Giants tied the game in the fourth, thanks to a leadoff double by Yastrzemski and three straight two-out hits.

The Giants' biggest chance to score came against Padres reliever Craig Stammen, who came in after Quantrill in the sixth inning.

Bumgarner threw one pitch he immediately knew he wanted back, a cutter to Hunter Renfroe that was a 444-foot, three-run bomb in the third.

Rookie Adrian Morejon made his second start as an "opener" for the Padres. His prior start had been even more impressive, when he went toe-to-toe with rookie Mike Soroka in another scoreless battle; he allowed only three hits in six innings pitched. Franmil Reyes lifted a ball to right that just kept carrying - Yastrzemski thought he had it in deep right, then on the warning track, then at the wall.

Kevin Pillar leads the Giants with 12 home runs and is batting.244. Solano, Dickerson and Crawford had two apiece.

Yastrzemski, the grandson of Hall of Famer Carl Yastrzemski, had his second four-hit game.
