Sports Night: Signs of hope for Giants

Giants: Signs of hope

The Giants, losers of 10 of 14 games to start the season, play one of their better all-around games of the season in a 6-2 victory over the rival Los Angeles Dodgers. The Giants avoid matching their worst 15-game start in the San Francisco era.

A’s: Is there a pitcher in the house?

Johnny Giavotella hits a three-run shot for his first homer with Los Angeles after the second inning was extended by a replay review, and the defending American League West champion Angels so thoroughly rough up the A’s that Oakland first baseman Ike Davis pitches. The A’s lose 14-1.

River Cats: Beware of even little dogs

The El Paso Chihuahuas hammer River Cats starter Ty Blach for a 7-1 victory in El Paso, Texas. Blach gives up six runs and 10 hits in four innings.
