Recap


Giants 4, Athletics 0: Ryan Vogelsong allowed just one hit over seven innings and Angel Pagan ripped a two-run single to highlight a four-run seventh as San Francisco continued its home dominance over its Bay Area rival.

Buster Posey had an RBI double and Pagan extended his hitting streak to 10 games for the Giants, who have won their last 11 home meetings with Oakland dating back to 2009. San Francisco has won three in a row and six of its last eight while Oakland fell for the fourth time in five outings.

Vogelsong (2-2) retired his first 13 batters before surrendering a one-out single to Seth Smith in the fifth inning. Vogelsong rebounded to handcuff the Athletics for the rest of his outing and finished with five strikeouts.

The Giants finally broke through in the seventh as Emmanuel Burriss led off with a single and moved to second after Vogelsong was hit by a pitch. A's starter Tyson Ross (2-4) was replaced by Grant Balfour, who promptly walked Gregor Blanco to load the bases. Two batters later, Melky Cabrera lifted a sacrifice fly to right center to plate Burriss.

Posey followed with a ground-rule double and Pagan doubled the advantage with a two-run single to center to give San Francisco a 4-0 lead.

Javier Lopez preserved the lead by striking out two in the eighth and Clay Hensley recorded the final three outs.

Ross deserved a better fate after handcuffing the Giants through six innings before running into trouble in the seventh. He was charged with two runs on seven hits while walking four and striking out four.

GAME NOTEBOOK: Oakland LHP Brett Anderson hit a snag in his recovery from Tommy John surgery as he was shut down with forearm stiffness. Manager Bob Melvin was not too worried about the setback, stating that Anderson is ahead of schedule. ... Athletics OF Josh Reddick, who entered the series with a sizzling .366 batting average in interleague play, went 0-for-3 on Saturday and is hitless in seven at-bats in the set.
