Matt Szczur came off the bench to go 4-for-5 with a triple and a double Friday as the Padres beat the Giants 12-9.
His fourth hit was an RBI single that gave the Padres the lead in the 11th. It made him the first player to get four hits off the bench since Paul Janish did so for the Reds on July 4, 2010. No Padre had ever accomplished the feat. Szczur entered the game in the fourth as part of a double-switch and doubled to lead off the following half-inning. He had two chances to become the first player ever to pick up a cycle off the bench, but he couldn't come up with the homer.
