Giants end sour season with a win, lose first pick

With this game being strictly for pride and bragging rights, I'd advise putting your money elsewhere, but for the sake of a pick, the Giants have had success against San Diego with Cueto on the bump, and I think the Giants will want to send their fans home happy after such a poor season, so I'd lay the juice with San Fran if I had to.

Cain's contract with San Francisco expires at the end of this season, and the Giants were not expected to offer him a new deal. He gave a long leash to starter Johnny Cueto, who scattered 12 hits and four earned runs over five up-and-down innings of work.

Friday: Did not play in an 8-0 loss to San Francisco.

Hunter Renfroe was 2 for 4 with a home run.

But Brazilian defender Caiuby equalized shortly afterward with a header to Philipp Max's cross. The Senegal striker, yet to start a league game this season, slid in at the far post to score.

The Padres (71-91) lost for the sixth time in seven games as they concluded their seventh straight losing season with a modest improvement of three more wins than last season. Matt Williams, the third overall pick in 1986, came onto the field during the seventh inning stretch to give away a vehicle. Buster Posey, the fifth overall pick in the 2008 draft, hit cleanup and smashed a leadoff double in the bottom of the second and then drew a walk in the bottom of the fourth.

Pablo Sandoval fittingly ended the Giants' 2017 season on Sunday afternoon, drilling a walk-off solo home run in the ninth inning against Padres reliever Phil Maton. His on-base percentage is.350, his OPS.704. Luis Perdomo will start the finale and is 8-11 with a 4.65 ERA and 114 strikeouts this season.

After Cory Spangenberg singled pinch-runner Matt Szczur to third, Dyson struck out Hunter Renfroe before Hedges' liner to right-center barely eluded right fielder Pence, easily scoring both baserunners for a 3-2 lead.
