    Padres' winning streak snapped at five

    SAN DIEGO (AP) -- Barry Bonds hit a two-run homer, his 25th, to highlight a five-run fourth inning and J.T. Snow also connected as the San Francisco Giants beat San Diego 8-6 Friday night to end the Padres' five-game winning streak.

    The NL West-leading Giants beat the last-place Padres for the sixth time in seven games this year. San Diego was coming off a three-game sweep of Los Angeles at Dodger Stadium, preceded by two straight wins against Seattle, baseball's best team.

    Bonds drove a 2-2 fastball from Jake Peavy an estimated 402 feet, several rows into the right-field seats, with two outs in the fourth. He paused a moment to watch the ball, then began his trot.

    It was Bonds' 638th career homer, and the two RBI gave him 1,704 for his career, moving him out of a tie with Reggie Jackson and into sole possession of 15th on the all-time list.

    Bonds' 39 homers at Qualcomm Stadium are his most at a road ballpark, and his 73 against the Padres are his most against any team. In the ninth, Bonds drew his 2,000th career walk.

    The Giants trailed 4-2 going into the fourth. Edgardo Alfonzo walked and pitcher Jesse Foppert singled with one out and scored on Ray Durham's triple into the Giants' bullpen in the right-field corner. First base umpire Jerry Layne at first called it a ground-rule double, but changed the call after talking it over with the rest of the crew.

    Snow drove in the go-ahead run on a groundout to first. Marquis Grissom singled ahead of Bonds' homer, which gave the Giants a 7-4 lead.

    Grissom had three hits and three runs.

    The Padres added runs on Sean Burroughs' groundout in the fifth and Mark Kotsay's RBI single in the sixth. Jose Cruz Jr. singled in Grissom in the ninth.

    Foppert (5-7) allowed five runs and six hits in five innings, struck out six and walked three. Tim Worrell pitched a perfect ninth for his 19th save in 23 chances.

    Peavy (8-6), who had won his previous four starts, lasted only four innings, his shortest outing of the year. He allowed seven runs on nine hits, walked three and struck out one.

    Rondell White hit a solo homer with two outs in the first, his 16th, and Ryan Klesko hit a two-run shot in the third, his 18th, as the Padres took leads of 1-0 and 4-2.

    Snow homered to right with two outs in the third, his fourth, and Yorvit Torrealba, who replaced injured catcher Benito Santiago, added an RBI single to give the Giants a 2-1 lead.

    Game notes


    Santiago left the game after jamming his left pinky finger into third base while sliding headfirst and was to have precautionary X-rays. He was on second base when Rich Aurilia hit a fly ball to left fielder White. Santiago tagged up and tried to advance, but was tagged out by Burroughs. ... Both teams made moves before the game. The Padres activated INF Lou Merloni from the 15-day disabled list and put INF Keith Lockhart on the DL with a lower back strain. The Giants recalled rookie outfielder Tony Torcato, their first-round pick in the 1998 amateur draft, from Triple-A Fresno and optioned INF-OF Francisco Santos to Fresno. Torcato played in five games with the Giants last year. ... Torcato struck out as a pinch-hitter in the eighth. ... Torcato's name hadn't yet been sewn on his jersey.
