SAN DIEGO (AP) — Yu Darvish struck out 12 and the San Diego Padres, helped when a replay review turned a Giants grand slam into a foul ball, beat San Francisco 3-2 on Friday night.
Darvish (3-1) allowed one run and four hits, including Buster Posey’s homer, in 6 1/3 innings. He gave up a single and walked two in the seventh, and left with the bases loaded and one out.READ MORE: Farms, Ranches In Southern Santa Clara County Grapple With Worsening Drought
Tim Hill relieved with a 3-1 lead and pinch-hitter Darin Ruf hit a drive near the right-field foul pole that was originally ruled a home run. After a short video review, the call was reversed to a foul.
Hill struck out Ruf a few pitches later and then fanned Mike Tauchman to end the threat.
The Giants scored in the eighth on Evan Longoria’s double play grounder. Mark Melancon pitched a scoreless ninth inning to earn his major league-leading ninth save.
Jurickson Profar hit a tiebreaking, two-run single in the sixth for a 3-1 lead off Logan Webb (1-2).
Giants shortstop Brandon Crawford was hit by a pitch from Darvish in the left calf in the fifth. He remained in the game to run, but was removed prior to the Padres batting in the bottom half.READ MORE: 5 Boats Burn, 4 Destroyed in the Delta Near Bethel Island

Paddack (1-3, 5.40 ERA) last pitched on Tuesday at Arizona, taking a 5-1 loss after giving up five runs, three earned, and six hits in 5 1/3 innings.
