  • The Giants' Joe Panik (12) is congratulated by Buster Posey after hitting a solo home run in the fifth inning against the Padres on Tuesday.
Ryan Vogelsong threw seven innings of three-hit ball, Joe Panik homered and the San Francisco Giants won their fifth consecutive game by beating the San Diego Padres 6-0 Tuesday night.

Brandon Crawford had three hits and drove in a run for the Giants, who won their eighth straight at home and are a game over .500 (14-13) for the first time since April 10, the beginning of an eight-game losing streak. Justin Maxwell and Matt Duffy, who had two hits, also drove in runs.

Vogelsong (1-2) walked two and struck out four in his longest outing of the season. He retired 11 of his first 12 hitters and pitched out of a bases-loaded jam in the sixth.

George Kontos and Yusmeiro Petit each worked an inning to complete the four-hitter.
