SAN DIEGO -- With the NL West won by the Los Angeles Dodgers, the San Francisco Giants have six more games to try to clinch a wild-card berth.The good news is, they dont have to play the San Diego Padres anymore.Rookie Manuel Margot tripled in the seventh inning and scored the go-ahead run on Wil Myers single as the Padres beat San Francisco 4-3 to drop the Giants a game behind the New York Mets in the NL wild-card race.The Mets beat Philadelphia 17-0. St. Louis began the day a half-game behind the Mets and Giants.A few minutes before this game ended, the Dodgers beat Colorado 4-3 in 10 innings to win the NL West title. The Dodgers came into Sunday seven games ahead of the Giants.The Padres split the four-game series and beat the Giants for the eighth time in 10 games since the All-Star break. San Francisco had swept the Padres three times in the seasons first two months.You know its coming, so were battling for the wild card, said manager Bruce Bochy, who managed the Giants to World Series titles in 2010, 2012 and 2014. You know thats inevitable, that was going to happen. You understand that, and sure youre always disappointed you dont win your division, but right now our focus is keep trying to win games and get there and have a shot at it.The Giants finish at home with three games against the Rockies and three against the Dodgers.Myers said the Padres didnt necessarily savor helping ruin the Giants chances at the division title.The only thing were focused on is playing good baseball, Myers said. Obviously we want to win every game. Were not going out there (with) our goal to beat the Giants. Our goal is to get better and get these younger guys experience.Why have the Padres dominated the Giants, who led the NL West by 6 1/2 games at the break?Weve just played better baseball, Myers said. I feel weve been pretty good here in the second half. I think weve done a lot of good things and I like where our teams at.Margot, called up Wednesday from Pacific Coast League champion El Paso, tripled to right center off Cory Gearrin (3-2) with one out in the seventh and scored on Myers single.Margot doubled in the first and hit an RBI single in the second, both off rookie Ty Blach, who was making his first big league start, in place of the injured Johnny Cueto.Brandon Morrow (1-0) got two outs for the victory. Brad Hand got the last five outs for his first save.San Francisco took a 3-1 lead in the third off lefty Clayton Richard. Buster Posey hit a two-run single and an RBI groundout by Kelby Tomlinson.One run was unearned due to catcher Austin Hedges throwing the ball away trying to get Trevor Brown at second base on Blachs bunt. The bunt went only a few inches in front of home plate and Blach had a hard time getting out of Hedges way.It took a moment for Hedges to get the ball and he rushed his throw. Padres manager Andy Green came out to argue, to no avail.San Diego tied it on Adam Rosales home run with two outs in the third inning off Blach and Yangervis Solartes RBI single in the fifth off George Kontos.The Padres had taken a 1-0 lead when Margot singled in Hedges in the second.Blach pitched three innings, allowing two runs and four hits, striking out three and walking three.I just didnt execute as many pitches there in the first, Blach said. The situation kind of dictated pitch around a little bit there and try to get to the lefty, there were two outs, a couple guys on, so we did that a little bit, and the pitch count just got away from me there.TRAINERS ROOMGiants: SS Brandon Crawford returned to the starting lineup for the first time since dislocating the pinky on his glove hand on Tuesday night. ... Bochy said he hopes Cueto (groin) can start Thursday night. ... 3B Eduardo Nunez left after spraining his right hamstring stealing second base in the seventh.UP NEXTGiants: After a day off, San Francisco opens its final homestand of the season with three games against Colorado starting Tuesday night.

Cameron Erving Super Bowl Jersey . -- The Missouri Tigers might not have a roster full of superstars. KNOXVILLE, Tenn. -- The reigning Southern Conference champions opened their season by continuing their recent mastery of the Southeastern Conference.Justin Tuoyo and Tre McLean each posted double-doubles Friday as Chattanooga won 82-69 at Tennessee to snap the Volunteers 24-game winning streak in home openers.This marked the second straight year that Chattanooga has opened the season by beating a Southeastern Conference team. The Mocs tipped off their 2015-16 campaign with a 92-90 overtime victory at Georgia, and they went on to win the Southern Conferences regular-season and tournament titles to earn an NCAA Tournament berth.Its great for Chattanooga -- for the city, for the school, McLean said. Its great. I told (teammate) Chuck (Ester) when he was on his visit, `If you come here, were going to shock the world. You look forward to games like this. This is what we came here for, and after last year, this is what we stayed for -- to play games and win games like this.Tennessee hadnt lost a home opener since falling 87-79 to East Tennessee State in 1991.Tuoyo had a career-high 22 points to go along with 11 rebounds in a performance that featured several dunks. McLean had 21 points and 10 rebounds. Greg Pryor had 14 points and Johnathan Burroughs-Cook added 11.Tennessee freshman Jordan Bone had 21 points in his college debut. Lamonte Turner had 12 points and Robert Hubbs III added 11 for Tennessee, which shot 1 of 16 from 3-point range.This game matched Tennessees youth against Chattanoogas experience. Chattanooga has five senior starters. Tennessee has seven true freshmen.Weve got six (total) seniors, players whove been around, great newcomers and a great coaching staff, Tuoyo said. We just feel like we can every game we step out on if we just be on the same page.Tennessee led by as many as seven points in the first half before Chattanooga pulled ahead and gradually took control. McLeans putback at the first-half buzzer gave Chattanooga a 34-29 halftime lead and started a 13-2 run.Theyyre a really good team, Bone said.dddddddddddd Theyre very mature. I feel like teams like that, that are old, they kind of know how to win.BIG PICTUREChattanooga: Casey Jones retuned from an ankle injury that limited the 2015-16 Southern Conference preseason player of the year to eight games last season. Jones looked good when he was on the floor but struggled with foul trouble all night. He scored seven points before fouling out with 5:38 left.Tennessee: With so many new faces, Tennessee may need time to sort out its rotation and establish chemistry. Tennessee coach Rick Barnes wasted no time testing out different combinations, as nine different Vols earned playing time in the first four minutes of the game.COMINGS AND GOINGSChattanooga learned before the game that Xavier transfer Makinde London had been granted an NCAA waiver allowing the 6-foot-10 forward to play right away for the Mocs rather than sitting out the 2016-17 season. London had two points and four rebounds in 16 minutes.The Mocs are playing without Ester, who is out for an extended period of time with a knee injury after making 29 starts last season. Tennessee guard Kwe Parker missed Fridays game and had a walking boot on his left foot. Barnes said Parkers status is day to day.DOUBLY REWARDINGBoth the mens team and womens team at Chattanooga opened the season Friday with victories over Power Five teams. The Chattanooga women won 66-53 at Rutgers.NEW-LOOK VOLSTennessee wore orange candy-stripe pregame warmup pants. The candy-stripe pants were part of Tennessees pregame gear during the tenure of Ray Mears, who coached the Vols from 1962-77.
