SAN DIEGO -- The team from San Francisco had a flashback. Chad Kuhl Jersey . It came courtsey of Pablo Sandoval hitting three home runs in the Giants 13-5 win over the San Diego Padres. "Actually I did when he hit that third one," Giants Manager Bruce Bochy said. "I said, that brings back a good memory." Sandoval hit three homers and drove in six runs Wednesday, leading a rare power show by the Giants. It also brought back thoughts of the teams amazing run last fall when it won its second World Series in three years.

Im starting to get my swing back, my timing back and trying to help the team win games. Sandoval started the day with 10 home runs this season. He then hit a two-run shot in the fifth inning, a leadoff drive in the eighth and a three-run homer in the ninth. The star third baseman also added a single against the Padres.

Tim Lincecum (9-13) won again at Petco Park as the Giants avoided the three-game sweep. In Lincecums first start at San Diego since throwing a no-hitter on July 13, he worked 5 2-3 innings and allowed five runs on seven hits in gaining his third straight win. "I didnt attack it the way I wanted to," a downcast Lincecum said. "When you have the answers to the test and you dont put them down, it is a little frustrating." The Giants tagged Eric Stults (8-13), hitting three home runs in taking a 5-2 lead through four innings. "Obviously I wasnt pleased with the result," Stults said. "Today was a tough one. It was just one of those games that got away from me." Brandon Crawford homered in the Giants third. Hunter Pence and Hector Sanchez hit two-run homers in the fourth. Chase Headley and Ronny Cedeno homered for the Padres. Pences RBI double finished Stults in the fifth. Sandoval greeted reliever Brad Brach with a towering drive to right. Stults second-half woes continued as he absorbed his third straight loss. He last won on July 14 against the Giants. The Padres pulled to 8-5 on RBI singles by Will Venable and Alexi Amarista in the sixth. But this day belonged to Sandoval. "Hes one of those guys that when hes hot, hes hot," Padres Manager Bud Black said. "Its really tough to get him out."
