Trevor Hoffman blew another save and the San Francisco Giants went on to beat the slumping San Diego Padres 3-2 in 13 innings last night. Rookie Emmanuel Burriss doubled leading off the 13th and scored the go-ahead run for the Giants. The rally came four innings after Hoffman couldn't hold the lead for what would have been Greg Maddux's 350th career victory.

It was San Diego's first home game since a 2-1 loss in 22 innings to the Colorado Rockies on Thursday night. The Padres have lost seven of eight and dropped into a tie with the Giants for last place in the NL West. Brian Wilson got his sixth save in seven chances. Keiichi Yabu (2-1) pitched two-thirds of an inning for the win. (Read more MLB stories.)
