For the first time in weeks, the Giants were able to hit repeat on their victory soundtrack.

A 10-1 win over the San Diego Padres on Friday night at Petco Park gave the Giants back-to-back victories, something they had not done since taking two from the Padres on June 18-19. The Giants tied a season-high with 17 hits and got contributions from hitters up and down the lineup.

"It's great to see the offense break out of it," manager Bruce Bochy said. "We put together back-to-back well-played games."

The Giants led just 2-1 heading into the sixth inning, but they hammered the Padres bullpen. With the bases loaded in the sixth, Marco Scutaro made it 3-1 with an infield single. Buster Posey followed with a two-run single to right field.

Four of the first five Giants reached base in the seventh, and Posey provided the big blow with a two-run double to left field. Posey, who had a five-hit game earlier this week, had five RBIs on Friday night.
The five-run inning was the Giants' first since a June 13 win in Pittsburgh that also was the last time they hit double-digits on the scoreboard. Friday night's game marked just the third time since June 13 that the Giants scored at least six runs.

The newfound offensive rhythm came from all over the lineup. Leadoff hitter Gregor Blanco scored four runs, and Scutaro had three hits and a walk before being pulled after the seventh-inning explosion. Cleanup hitter Pablo Sandoval had a run-scoring double in the fifth and reached base three times.

When the Giants have been at their best this season, it has often been the bottom of the lineup that has carried the offensive load. Kensuke Tanaka had two hits and two runs out of the No. 7 spot, and Brandon Crawford reached base four straight times in the eight spot. Crawford has slumped terribly after spraining his fingers in June, but he has 11 hits in his last 22 at-bats.

"He's coming to really come around with the bat," Bochy said. "I do think that (injury) is behind him."
The outburst accompanied another strong start from Chad Gaudin, who was charged with one earned run while pitching into the sixth. Gaudin was pitching two days after it was revealed that he faces lewdness charges in Las Vegas.
