Recap


Giants 1, Phillies 0 (11): Melky Cabrera delivered a one-out run-scoring single in the bottom of the 11th inning as San Francisco won a game featuring 19 shutout innings by starters Matt Cain of the Giants and Cliff Lee of the Phillies.

After Brandon Belt singled off Antonio Bastardo (0-1), Angel Pagan reached on third baseman Ty Wigginton's error. Cabrera followed with a sharp liner just over the head of second baseman Freddy Galvis as Belt raced home from second.

The Phillies' Carlos Ruiz led off the 11th with a double down the left-field line off Sergio Romo, and Galvis sacrificed him to third. Javier Lopez replaced Romo and struck out pinch hitter Jim Thome, and Clay Hensley (1-0) relieved Lopez and got pinch hitter John Mayberry Jr. to ground out.

Cain allowed two hits in nine innings and struck out four. He retired the last 13 batters he faced and has pitched 18 1/3 consecutive scoreless innings.

Lee pitched 10 innings - the first time in his career he has gone more than nine. He scattered seven hits, struck out seven and induced four double play ground balls.

The Giants were poised to jump on Lee in the first when Pagan led off with a single and Cabrera followed with a hit to advance Pagan to third. Lee, though, retired Pablo Sandoval and got Buster Posey to ground into a double play.

Lee allowed a leadoff double to Brett Pill in the sixth before retiring 12 in a row.

Cain, meanwhile, allowed a one-out single to Galvis in the third and Wigginton's single in the fifth. Cain's issued his only walk - to Ruiz in the fifth - but got Galvis to ground into a double play.

GAME NOTEBOOK:
Cain pitched a one-hitter against Pittsburgh on Friday. ... Sandoval went 1-for-4 and has hit in all 12 games. ... Lee, who was 0-2 with a 6.94 ERA against San Francisco in the 2010 World Series while pitching for Texas, is 4-0 with a 0.62 ERA in five regular-season starts against the Giants. ... The last Phillie to pitch 10 scoreless innings was Steve Carlton in 1981.
