San Diego, CA (Sports Network) - Andrew Cashner shined on both the mound and at the plate to lead the San Diego Padres to a 2-1 victory over the San Francisco Giants in the opener of a three-game series from Petco Park.

Cashner (1-1) held the Giants to one run on five hits while striking out five over six strong innings in his second start of the season, and added a single and a stolen base while scoring a key run that helped the Padres to a second straight win following a five-game skid.

Carlos Quentin and Yonder Alonso each came through with RBI singles for San Diego, with Huston Street stranding a pair of Giants in the ninth to close out the contest.

San Francisco, which entered the set off back-to-back extra-inning defeats to Arizona, was dealt a third straight narrow loss despite a solid showing from Tim Lincecum (2-1). The two-time NL Cy Young winner yielded two runs while fanning nine batters over seven frames in a hard-luck outcome.

Angel Pagan, Buster Posey and Brandon Belt all collected two hits for the Giants, who went 0-for-5 with runners in scoring position.
