SAN DIEGO (AP) - Wil Myers hit an RBI double off the right-field wall with one out in the eighth inning and Craig Kimbrel got his first save with the San Diego Padres, who beat the San Francisco Giants 1-0 Friday night.

The run snapped the Padres' 22-inning scoreless streak dating to Wednesday night at Los Angeles. The Padres lost 1-0 to the Giants in 12 innings in their home opener on Thursday.

Pinch-hitter Clint Barmes drew a one-out walk off Jeremy Affeldt (0-1) in the eighth before Myers doubled.

The Giants had pitched 22 consecutive scoreless innings until the eighth.

Joaquin Benoit (2-0) pitched a perfect eighth. Kimbrel, obtained Sunday in a blockbuster trade with Atlanta, allowed one hit in the ninth before inducing Angel Pagan's double-play ball to end the game. It was the fourth double play turned by the Padres.
