Twins win: Rogers saved, brothers lose as Pads Top Giants

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Manny Machado’s RBI groundout in the seventh inning put San Diego ahead, Austin Nola hit his first home run of the season, and the Padres beat the San Francisco Giants 4-2 on Monday night.

The respite for opposing clubs, twin brothers Taylor and Tyler Rogers, both pitched and factored – Taylor earned his third save and Tyler (0–1) lost.

Jake Cronenworth’s RBI single in the ninth provided insurance for the Padres.

Pierce Johnson loaded the bases with two outs on Steven Duggar’s walk in the eighth, but Mauricio Dubon hit a swing.

Nola joined in fifth only for the Giants to tie in sixth on a two-out wild pitch by winner Steven Wilson (2-0).

San Diego right-hander Nick Martinez made his first major league debut since 2017 for Texas after playing three of the past four years in Japan. He allowed one run on five hits, scored six runs and scored one run in five innings.

Giants starter Alex Wood made his first 2022 debut, scoring six runs in 4 1/3 innings for two off five hits.

The Rogers twins chatted in the back of the cage, then later exchanged lineup cards and posed for a photo with the umpire crew.

“Maybe if you put them in the same uniform you can’t tell them apart,” said Padres manager Bob Melvin. “I know it is a special day for the two of them to be able to be on the field together. There are twins and then there are twins, and it’s hard to separate. ,

Familiar flappin’ flags

Melvin, the former A’s manager who caught on for the Giants after growing up in the Bay Area, compared the foggy night to his days going to the games at Candlestick Park.

“It’s always special when you come home,” Melvin said. “The rivalry between the giants, this ballpark is fantastic, you’re always going to get big crowds here. It’s a really good team. You have to do your best to win here.”

home again

New Padres starter Sean Manea still has his San Francisco home, where he has been living throughout the series since being traded from Oakland to San Diego on April 3. He hasn’t been to San Diego yet.

Maneya – who made seven no-hits in his Padres debut on Friday in Arizona – is set for a series finale on Wednesday afternoon.

“It was tough at first, it still is,” Mania said of the move. “I’ve been here a week. It’s still pretty new. That’s how baseball goes.”

Padres: LHP Blake Snell, scratched with a stiffness in his left upper leg since early Sunday, will wait until Tuesday to throw and then the Padres will determine he may need a stint on the 10-day injured list Or not. “He’s moving around fine,” said Melvin, unwilling to speculate on Snell’s condition. “I want to leave it open. I’m a little skeptical based on the fact that he had a scratch yesterday, but I don’t want to get ahead of myself and I want him to have some input.

Giants: 3B Wilmer Flores is dealing with a personal matter that is keeping him out of the lineup. “He’s going through a tough time off the field too and we’re respecting him,” said Kapler, noting that the Giants are treating him as they would by giving Flores the time he needed to give the injured player . “Wilmer and I have had constant communication and conversation about his personal circumstances over the past few days since the start of the season. When we collectively believe he is ready and emotionally strong enough to get on the field So we’re going to get him on the field. And when we don’t, just like a player dealing with something physical, that’s the same thing. These things are just as challenging when they are emotional or mental. When they are physical.” … Lamonte Wade Jr., on the injured list with swelling of the left knee, will soon begin an ongoing progression.


Padres: RHP Yu Darvish (0-0, 0.00 ERA) is looking to build on his season-opening outing in Arizona last week, where he made no-hitter progress but pulled after the sixth inning after throwing 92 pitches had gone.

Giants: RHP Alex Cobb made his Giants debut after signing a $20 million, two-year contract before the lockout.
