GAME OF THE DAY

Giles homers twice more to lift Padres

August 13, 2007|From the Associated Press

CINCINNATI -- Brian Giles hit two home runs for the second consecutive game and Jake Peavy remained unbeaten against Cincinnati in San Diego's 10-4 victory Sunday.

"I've hit the ball like that before," said Giles. "This park is a little more conducive to my power."

Giles, who also homered Friday, has hit five of his seven home runs in the last three days.

Khalil Greene had four hits -- his fourth four-hit game this season -- and a career-high three doubles. He drove in three runs in support of Peavy, who improved to 5-0 in eight starts against the Reds over his career.

The Padres set a franchise record with nine doubles and 12 extra-base hits on a day in which the temperature at the start of the game was 91 degrees and kept rising.
