SAN FRANCISCO — Gregor Blanco had a pinch hit, two-run triple in the seventh inning, leading the San Francisco Giants to a 4-2 victory over the San Diego Padres on Wednesday.

Brandon Belt and Marco Scutaro also drove in runs as the Giants won their second straight following a three-game slide. Scutaro and Hunter Pence each had two hits.

Will Venable and Jesus Guzman each hit home runs for the Padres, who have lost two straight after a seven-game winning streak.

Madison Bumgarner (7-4) won his third straight start after allowing two runs and three hits over seven innings. He walked four and struck out eight.

Padres starter Eric Stults gave up two runs and seven hits over 6 1/3 innings. He walked two and struck out three.

Luke Gregerson (4-3) did not retire a batter, giving up two runs and four hits. He took over for Stults after Tony Abreu singled with one out in the seventh.

Pinch-hitter Hector Sanchez also singled ahead of Blanco’s triple, which one-hopped the fence in right-center field. Scutaro followed with an RBI single and Buster Posey singled before Tyson Ross came on to strike out Pence and Joaquin Arias. He also struck out the side in the eighth.

Jake Dunning pitched the eighth and Sergio Romo worked the ninth for his 18th save in 21 chances.

The benches cleared briefly in the second inning when Guzman took a few steps toward the mound after a pitch from Bumgarner sailed behind his back.

Venable hit his 10th home run of the season, a solo shot leading off the third to put the Padres ahead.

The Giants tied it with a run in the fourth. Belt’s looping fly ball down the left field line fell just out of the reach of the charging Kyle Blanks, allowing Pence to score from third.

Guzman led off the seventh with his third home run of the season and second in two games. He’s a .304 career hitter against left-handers and .429 (12-for-28) against Bumgarner.

Guzman, who made his major league debut with the Giants against the Padres, has hit four home runs in San Francisco, second only to eight in San Diego. He has no more than one in any other ballpark.
