The Padres defeated the Giants 7-4 on Tuesday in a game where they got plenty of contributions from the team's new acquisitions, and Joe Musgrove delivered another quality start. After allowing a solo homer in the first inning, Musgrove didn't allow another run and completed 7 innings. Juan Soto hit his first home run in brown and gold, collecting two hits and a walk. Josh Bell went 2-4 with a run scored and an RBI. While Brandon Drury went hitless, he had a home run robbed by a leaping catch at the wall in center field. Josh Hader got his first save opportunity with the Padres, entering the bottom of the 9th with the Padres leading 4-1. Hader wasn't able to maintain the lead, issuing a hit and 3 walks, and allowing 3 earned runs. Manny Machado would make up for it though, blasting a walkoff 3-run home run in the bottom of the 9th to end the Padres' 5-game losing streak and send the fans home happy. The Padres will conclude their 3-game series against the Giants on Wednesday at 1:10.
