San Diego Padres vs. San Francisco Giants

San Francisco Giants pitcher Madison Bumgarner left speaks with catcher Aramis Garcia during a rehab assignment with the San Jose Giants as they host the Modesto Nuts in a baseball game Monday

He said he thinks baseballs are tighter this year and that this is the first time he's had problems with blisters.

When hot spots appeared on three of the fingers on Johnny Cueto's right hand Friday night, the coaching staff pulled him from the game. Cueto had to leave Friday's start with blisters to his pitching hand, and when asked after the game, he said the ball could easily be to blame.

"Of course I feel different now", he said though interpreter Erwin Higueros. "I mean, I can't remember a season, and I've been here since '93, whether it's home or road, that we've been swept so many times", Sabean told the Mercury News.

The former Braves left-hander said that if anyone could notice a juiced ball it would be a pitcher. Denard Span knocked in the go-ahead run with a single to score Joe Panik, who produced the second of consecutive singles against Richard.

Cueto escaped without a decision and has won just twice in eight starts; previous year he was 13-1 at the break.

Cueto yielded three runs and six hits.

The Giants snapped a four-game losing streak and won for the second time in seven games.

Posey homered an estimated 429 feet to straightaway center field with one out in the seventh, his 11th overall and first since June 22.

As some commenters pointed out, the flight attendant may not be pouring leftover champagne drank by someone else into the bottle. The Emirates video received plenty of attention on Instagram , with about 12,000 views and a wide range of comments.

Cueto's night did begin on a positive note, as he struck out two batters in a scoreless bottom of the first before drilling his third hit of the season in the top of the second to drive in Giants' shortstop Brandon Crawford and give himself a 2-0 lead.

The Giants' bullpen responded as Cory Gearrin, George Kontos, Steven Okert, and Hunter Strickland combined to throw four innings of relief before Bochy called on closer Sam Dyson.

The Giants regained the advantage with a two-run sixth as they chased Richard. He struck out four and walked two.

San Diego tied it in the second on Blash's RBI double followed by Erick Aybar's run-scoring base hit.

Said manager Andy Green: "I thought he settled relatively nicely there, until the sixth inning".

"It's really hard when you have the lead going and you're expected to come away on top", Richard said. It just doesn't look like the Cueto of 2016 is going to make an appearance.

After slapping a Clayton Richard fastball past the dive of Padres' first baseman Wil Myers, Cueto took a wild turn around the bag at first, and flopped awkwardly back toward the bag when catcher Austin Hedges threw back to first base to gun down a giddy Cueto. It didn't take away from the strong start, though, as Richard gave up only a solo homer over his six innings of work. Blash, who was recalled earlier from Triple-A El Paso, doubled in Cory Spangenberg after his inning-opening walk. Dyson recorded his fourth save of the year for the Giants in place of Mark Melancon, who remains on the disabled list with a pronator strain, but it wasn't without drama.
