SAN DIEGO -- The San Francisco Giants start what they hope is a long second half when they face the San Diego Padres on Friday night at Petco Park.The Giants, with baseballs best record at 57-33, have their sights on keeping their recent tradition alive. Since 2010, theyve won the World Series in even years.Were in the business of winning around here, Giants manager Bruce Bochy told mlb.comThe Padres (38-51) are trying to avoid something theyre known for: delivering losing baseball. San Diego starts its second half hoping to sidestep its six consecutive season under .500 and begins the second half without left-hander Drew Pomeranz, who was reportedly traded to the Boston Red Sox.San Francisco offers ace lefty Madison Bumgarner (10-4, 1.94 ERA)against Padres right-hander Andrew Cashner (3-7, 5.40).For Bumgarner, a four-time All-Star, its his second outing at Petco Park in four days. Although the other one was merely a bullpen session before Tuesdays All-Star Game that he didnt pitch in.Bumgarners left arm was still rebounding from pitching a one-hitter on 117 pitchers in a 4-0 blanking of the Arizona Diamondbacks Sunday.So its a well-rested Bumgarner looking for the Giants 10th straight win over the Padres this season in kicking off an eight-game road trip. The Giants have also claimed the last six series against their most southerly NL West foes.Bumgarner has won two of his last three decisions and was back being his dominant self against Arizona. He had a no-hitter in the eighth inning and struck out a career-high 14.This guy has just amazed us with what hes done, Bochy said. Nothing surprises us with what he does and how he elevates his game and gets even better.The Padres know just how the Diamondbacks felt.Bumgarner has won both decisions against the Padres this season. In the last matchup which came in San Diego on May 17, Bumgarner notched a complete game by allowing a run on five hits while striking out 11.Cashner takes the mound and the Padres take a deep breath.Cashner is coming off a dreadful outing in which he surrendered eight runs and four home runs in Sundays loss to the Los Angeles Dodgers. It was the second start back for Cashner after he missed most of June with a neck injury.The inconsistent Cashner could also be feeling the pressure of scuffling in a season in which his contract expires.This years been tough for him in the sense that hes got all the potential in the world, Padres manager Andy Green said to mlb.com. Its just a matter of putting him in there, giving him the opportunity to show what he can do and hopefully move past those struggles.The Giants have contributed to Cashner, who was once traded Chicago Cubs first baseman Anthony Rizzo, having a shoddy season.Theyve beat him twice this year as hes lasted but 6 2/3 innings in his two starts. His 6.23 ERA against the Giants tells the story as Cashner continues to struggle with consistency, no matter the opponent. ABILENE, Texas -- Kade Harrington had 23 carries for 145 yards and a score and Lamar piled up 520 yards of offense in a 38-10 win against Abilene Christian on Saturday night.Harrington entered the contest leading the Southland Conference averaging 112 rushing yards per game. The Cardinals took control in the second quarter. Zae Giles had a 38-yard TD run and Carson Earp threw a 6-yarder later to Giles just before halftime for a 17-3 lead.Dewan Lee Thompsons 7-yard TD run with 10:04 left in the third quarter all but sealed the outcome.dddddddddddd Earp was 16 for 19 with 221 yards in the air and Lamar (2-3, 2-1) had a time of possession edge by almost 17 minutes.Abilene Christian (0-6, 0-4) got its lone lead at 3-0 off Nik Graus 22-yard field goal.Parker McKenzie was 15 for 31 for 119 yards, a TD and an interception for the Wildcats.
