SAN FRANCISCO - The Giants flirted with unchartered territory Wednesday before they rediscovered their winning ways in a 7-5 decision over the Pittsburgh Pirates.

The Pittsburgh Pirates hope to continue their climb up the NL Central ladder and will shoot for a three-game sweep of the struggling San Francisco Giants Wednesday afternoon at AT&T Park.

SAN FRANCISCO-The shake-up continued Tuesday at AT&T Park. Juan Perez and Travis Ishikawa-yes, that Travis Ishikawa-joined the big league club. Adam Duvall went back to Triple-A Fresno, and Tony Abreu was designated for assignment.

It's been quite some time since Giants manager Bruce Bochy heard booing from the home crowd at AT&T Park.

SAN FRANCISCO-The putrid stretch at AT&T Park hit a new low Tuesday night.

The San Francisco Giants have leaned heavily on Madison Bumgarner in recent weeks, running him out to the mound for the final game of the first half and then the first game of the second half, and riding his eight strong innings last Wednesday in a game delayed 59 minutes by rain.

After getting swept in a three-game home series to the Los Angeles Dodgers to fall out of first place in the NL West, the San Francisco Giants turned to their hottest pitcher to help wash away their woes.

Except for about 30 friends and family in the stands, Sacramento native Vance Worley silenced the announced crowd of 41,794 at AT&T Park with the best performance of his career.

Vance Worley tossed the first shutout of his career as the Pittsburgh Pirates took a 5-0 win over the San Francisco Giants in the opener of a three-game series.
