SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - Mike Adams threw a pitch to Pablo Sandoval that most hitters would have let pass. Instead it went for a tying two-run double that left Adams miserable.

Nate Schierholtz hit his second home run of the game leading off the bottom of the 14th inning to give the San Francisco Giants a 6-5 victory over the San Diego Padres on Wednesday night.

The real turning point, according to Adams, was allowing the Giants to tie it in the eighth. It was the first time in 28 games the Padres lost after leading through seven innings.

``None of these other guys should have pitched,' Adams said. ``I consider myself one of the best in the game if not the best and that stuff shouldn't happen at all. This one is on me.'

Adams had not allowed a run in 15 of his previous 16 appearances against the Giants. He entered with one out and Andres Torres on board via a single. Brandon Crawford greeted Adams with another single. His pitch to Sandoval was down and in, well below the knees.

``I concerned myself with the runner way too much,' Adams said. ``I didn't get on top of the ball. Tha main thing was to make a good pitch and I didn't do that.'

Ryan Ludwick had two RBIs, and Chase Headley, Jesus Guzman and Rob Johnson each drove in a run for the Padres, who had won 10 of their last 13.

``That was two good bullpens going at it and it was just the one swing at the end,' Padres manager Bud Black said.

The Giants snapped a three-game losing streak.

Schierholtz had three hits and drove in three runs for the Giants, who beat the Padres for just the third time in 12 games at AT&T Park.

``It's hard to have a better game than Nate did,' Giants manager Bruce Bochy said.

Javier Lopez (4-1) threw two scoreless innings while Pat Neshek (1-1) took the loss.

Sandoval drove in three runs as the Giants rallied from a three-run deficit. Torres had three hits.

Padres starter Dustin Moseley allowed four runs and five hits over 7 1-3 innings. He struck out a career-high nine and walked one.

``He threw great,' Black said. ``An outstanding performance. He made the one mistake to Schierholtz.'

Moseley was 1-3 over his previous eight games despite allowing no more than three runs in a game over that span. He has the lowest run support of any NL pitcher. Giants starter Madison Bumgarner has the second-lowest.

Bumgarner lasted six innings, allowing five runs and nine hits. He is 1-5 in nine starts at home.

Ludwick had a two-run double in the first, but Torres doubled leading off the bottom half and eventually scored on Sandoval's groundout.

The Padres added a run in the third on Headley's sacrifice fly and in the fourth on Guzman's double.

Schierholtz's fifth home run of the year, a two-run shot that glanced off the right-field foul pole, trimmed San Diego's lead to 4-3 in the fourth.

Orlando Hudson singled with two outs in the sixth, stole second and advanced to third on Chris Stewart's throwing error. He scored on Johnson's single to make it 5-3.

NOTES: Giants LHP Jonathan Sanchez threw a bullpen session and has another scheduled for Saturday. ... Black is undecided on his Saturday starter, though RHP Aaron Harang (right foot) appears the likely choice. ... Injured Giants C Buster Posey made an appearance in the broadcast booth during the game. ... Giants OF Cody Ross (slight hamstring strain) was out of the starting lineup for the second straight day. ... Padres OF Cameron Maybin hit his sixth triple, the most by a Padre before the All-Star break since Dave Roberts had nine in 2006. ... The Padres stole four bases and improved to 8 of 8 for the series. ... Johnson's RBI was his second since June 4.
