SAN DIEGO (AP) - New Padres ace James Shields was masterful in outpitching October nemesis Madison Bumgarner, who lasted only three innings in San Diego's 10-2 victory against the San Francisco Giants on Saturday night.

Shields (1-0) held the Giants to one run and three hits in seven innings, struck out seven and walked one for his first victory with the Padres. He signed as a free agent in February. He combined with two relievers to hold the Giants to five hits.

Bumgarner (1-1), the World Series MVP, allowed five runs and 10 hits to the Padres' new-look offense. Justin Upton, Derek Norris and Will Middlebrooks each had two hits off the lefty.

Bumgarner beat Shields, then with Kansas City, in Games 1 and 5 of the World Series, and then pitched five scoreless innings of relief in Game 7. Shields signed with San Diego as a free agent in February.
