Vincent wins as Padres down Giants in 13SAN FRANCISCO (6-17-2013) (6-18-2013) -- Palomar product Nick Vincent notched the pitching win for the San Diego Padres vs. the San Francisco Giants on Monday night at AT&T Park.
The 26-year-old right-hander shut out the defending World Champions in the 11th and 12th innings, giving the Padres a 5-3 victory in a game that lasted 13 innings. He came back Tuesday and retired the only batter he faced in a 5-4 loss rto the Giants.
Vincent notched a save on June 12 as the Padres downed the Atlanta Braves 5-3 at Petco Park. He struck out the the only batter he faced, Atlanta's Justiin Upton.
Vincent, the second-winningest pitcher in Palomar history, was summoned by manager Buddy Black in the ninth inning of that game to face Upton with runners at first and third and two out.
Vincent went 2-0 vs. Upton, then threw three straight strikes. Upton looked at the called third strike.
"That was quite a challenge for Nick," Black told UT San Diego after that game. "Upton is a prolific home run hitter. Nick fell behind. It was a great duel, a young pitcher establishing himself as a major leaguer."
In five appearances for the Padres this season against Seattle, Toronto, Atlanta and the Giants, Vincent has yet to give up a run, compiling an ERA of 0.00 over 6 2/3 innings. He's given up three hits, striking out six and walking 0.
Appearing in 32 games for the Padres the last two seasons, Vincent is 3-0 in the Major Leagues with one save and an ERA of 1.36. He's struck out 34 batters and walked 7 in 32 2/3 big-league innings, allowing 31 hits. On the Major League level, opposing batters have a .190 batting average against Vincent (.198 in 2012, .136 in 2013).
