The San Diego Padres recorded just two hits in their 1-0 win over the San Francisco Giants at PETCO Park last night. The Padres got a seventh inning double from Khalil Greene, who would score the game's only run on a sacrifice fly, and an eighth inning single by Adrian Gonzalez. Matt Cain started for the Giants and Jonathan Sanchez pitched the eighth.
According to the Elias Sports Bureau, the Giants hadn't lost a two-hitter since September 20, 1998 when the Dodgers beat the Giants 1-0 at Candlestick Park thanks to a first inning home run by the immortal Trenidad Hubbard.
The Giants won a game on September 7, 1986 when they had just one hit, a first inning RBI double by Mike Aldrete, and Mike Krukow pitched a 2-hitter against the Expos to win 1-0.
