SAN FRANCISCO — Jesus Guzman, Chris Denorfia and Jedd Gyorko each homered and drove in two runs and the San Diego Padres beat the San Francisco Giants 9-3 on Saturday.

Hunter Pence, who reached a tentative agreement on a $90 million, five-year contract before the game, hit a two-run homer for the Giants. San Francisco had won three in a row.

Eric Stults (11-13) pitched seven effective innings to win his third straight start after going 0-6 in his previous 10 starts. He also helped himself with an RBI single during a four-run fourth.

Stults allowed three runs on seven hits. He did not walk a batter and struck out three.

Yusmeiro Petit (4-1) lasted a season-low 3 2-3 innings, giving up five runs and seven hits.
