    SAN DIEGO -- As they struggle to stay alive in the race for a postseason berth, the San Francisco Giants simply cannot figure out the rookie-laden San Diego Padres. Blue Cowboys Jerseys .They lost 7-2 on Friday night to journeyman pitcher Edwin Jackson, who held them to four hits in six innings while getting all the backing he needed from All-Star Wil Myers, who hit a three-run home run off rookie Albert Suarez in the first inning.It was the seventh loss in eight games against the Padres since the All-Star break.I wish I could figure it out myself, said Bruce Bochy, a former Padres skipper who managed the Giants to World Series titles in 2010, 2012 and 2014. We have blown two saves against them, so thats a big difference. They have pitched well against us, I will say that. Weve had a hard time scoring runs.The Giants swept the Padres three times in the seasons first two months. Things turned dramatically, starting when the Padres swept the Giants in San Diego in the first series after the All-Star break. The Padres, who have gotten younger as the season advanced and they shed high-priced veterans, swept again in San Francisco last week.The Giants dropped into the second wild card position, a game behind the New York Mets. San Francisco fell to seven games behind the Los Angeles Dodgers in the NL West.The Giants beat the Padres 2-1 on Thursday night but couldnt get much going Friday.With four hits, two runs, were down three right away, so obviously thats not going to make it, Bochy said. These bats have just been quiet. We had a great pitching effort yesterday to win the game for us, and found a way to win that one, scratched and clawed for runs. But two big innings got us.Finishing the regular season strong will be critical, Bochy said. Whats going to happen is pretty simple -- weve got to pitch and weve got to get these bats going, too. We cant put this kind of pressure every night on the pitchers. Weve had a tough time scoring runs here against this club. You look at the last series and this series. We had two last night, two tonight. Its hard to get on a consistent run without this offense going.Jackson (5-6) won for just the second time in seven starts. He struck out five and walked five.Im just trying to bounce back, Jackson said. I wish I could have less walks. They kind of cost me in the fifth inning, walked a couple, then Posey comes up and got a big hit, but nevertheless, all in all, some decent game of bounce back,. Were always hard on ourselves, but it was great to have the offensive support and see the young guys come up and get first hits and see the excitement in the dugout, it was definitely a lot of fun and it makes the game fun.Suarez (3-5) fell behind 3-0 before recording an out. Jon Jay hit a leadoff single, rookie Carlos Asuaje doubled for his first big league hit and Myers homered into the party deck just beyond the fence in right-center, his 28th.Buster Posey pulled the Giants to 3-2 with a two-run double off the wall in left-center with one out in the fifth.But Giants reliever Matt Reynolds came on to start the bottom of the fifth and allowed four runs without getting an out. He allowed a leadoff single to Jay, a double to Asuaje and then intentionally walked Myers before walking Ryan Schimpt to bring in a run. He was chased by Alex Dickersons two-run single to right. George Kontos came on and got the first out before Austin Hedges hit a sacrifice fly to make it 7-2.Suarez allowed three runs and five hits in four innings, struck out one and walked one.TRAINERS ROOMGiants: RHP Johnny Cueto, who left his start Tuesday night with a strained groin, was scheduled to play catch before the game. His spot in the rotation comes up Sunday. Bochy said Cueto is questionable to make the start. ... SS Brandon Crawford (dislocated pinky on his glove hand) also was to play catch and if that went well, take some dry swings.UP NEXTGiants: On Saturday night, LHP Madison Bumgarner (14-9, 2.57) will try to become the third-youngest pitcher in franchise history to win 100 games. Hes 2-2 with a 3.18 ERA in four starts against San Diego this year, but is 0-2 with a 4.97 ERA in his last two starts against the Padres.Padres: RHP Jarred Cosart (0-4, 5.63) is scheduled to make his ninth start with San Diego. Mike White Jersey .J. -- Marty Brodeur beat the Pittsburgh Penguins yet again. Throwback Cowboys Jerseys .C. United of Major League Soccer. United chose the defender in the second round of the 2013 MLS re-entry draft. . Note: The Calgary Flames announced Tuesday that Sean Monahan would not be made available to Canadas World Junior team. CINCINNATI -- Tim Adleman threw one right down the middle to Yu Darvish and then had to watch the Rangers pitcher round the bases on a notable home run.Darvish connected for only the second homer by a Rangers pitcher, and Adrian Beltre hit a tiebreaking double in the eighth inning Wednesday night for a 6-5 victory over the Cincinnati Reds and a split of their two-game interleague series.Darvishs solo shot to center field was one of three homers by the Rangers, who wasted a three-run lead before rallying late. Beltres double off Blake Wood (5-2) snapped a 5-5 tie.It was just a really bad pitch, something he could handle, said Adleman, who followed it by giving up another homer by Ian Desmond. Those were big blows -- two-out home runs when one pitch couldve gotten me out of it. Its definitely disappointing.Darvishs big moment came in the fifth when he ended his 0 for 12 career slump. He tipped the bill of his batting helmet as he rounded third base and raised an index finger briefly as he headed for the plate. The only other Rangers pitcher to homer was Bobby Witt in 1997 at Dodger Stadium, in only their third interleague game.Hes the fifth pitcher to homer against the Reds this season.He hit a fastball out over the plate and he hit it well, manager Bryan Price said. Its hard to know about American League pitchers, but he showed that hes capable of hitting it out of the ballpark.Nomar Mazara had a three-homer, and Desmond followed Darvishs homer with his 21st. The Reds have given up 10 homers in the last three games, including four sets of back-to-back homers.Darvish let a 5-2 lead slip away. He walked a season-high five batters and hit a batter in six innings. A passed ball and an error led to two unearned runs.Jake Diekman (4-2) went one inning and got the win. Sam Dyson pitched the ninth for his 28th save in 32 chances.The win snapped Texas three-game losing streak. The Rangers havent lost more than four straight this season. Leighton Vander Esch Jersey. They improved to 28-8 in one-run games, best in the majors.Carlos Beltran was hitless in four at-bats, leaving him in an 0-for-24 slump that matches his career high from 2000.Darvish helped the Reds score two runs in the second. He hit Adam Duvall and walked two to load the bases. Duvall scored when Ramon Cabrera grounded into a forceout, and another run scored on Jonathan Lucroys passed ball.Shortstop Elvis Andrus throwing error set up another unearned run in the fifth. Cabrera had an RBI double as the Reds tied it with three runs in the sixth, aided by another walk.INTERLEAGUEThe Rangers are 11-6 in interleague play, with their pitchers going 4 for 21 at the plate. The Reds are 5-12.TOP TWOThe Rangers host the Cleveland Indians on Thursday, matching the top two teams in the AL.
