Szczur scores trying run in 9th in Padres' win over Giants

Giants Lose No. 1 Pick in 2018 MLB Draft to Tigers Thanks to Pablo Sandoval's Walk-off Home Run

The Giants lost 23 more games than they did last season in their worst year since 1985, when they lost 100 games.

Cain gave up two hits, struck out four and walked one.

But the homer cost San Francisco the top-overall pick in the 2018 Major League Baseball draft.

The San Diego Padres will look to win their final series of the regular season after evening the set up with one win apiece after a 3-2 victory in game two on Saturday.

Giants Lose No. 1 Pick in 2018 MLB Draft to Tigers Thanks to Pablo Sandoval's Walk-off Home Run

But it was the fourth inning when the Giants found fuel in the tank.

Over the last four weeks, San Francisco waded through two dozen meaningless contests amidst the most awful season in franchise history only to reach the month of October with a result to play for. Matt Williams, the third overall pick in 1986, came onto the field during the seventh inning stretch to give away a auto. San Francisco almost pulled off a series win over the playoff-bound Arizona Diamondbacks this week but surrendered three runs in the ninth inning on Wednesday and allowed the winning run to score on a bases-loaded walk in a 4-3 setback.

The Giants pushed a go-ahead run across after the Padres pulled their starter, right-hander Jhoulys Chacin, after six strong innings. Carlos Asuaje, Yangervis Solarte, Christian Villanueva, Cory Spangenberg and Hunter Renfroe each added base hits of their own in the win for San Diego. Luis Perdomo will start the finale and is 8-11 with a 4.65 ERA and 114 strikeouts this season.

Unlike the Tigers, who have already fired manager Brad Ausmus and had Andrew Romine play all nine positions in their Saturday win, the Giants were determined to fight until the end. Matt Cain went five scoreless innings in his final career start, giving up just two hits while striking out four. It was Sandoval who fought the longest, and barring a Tigers' comeback, San Francisco will have the No. 2 overall pick.
