Zito Outpitches Cahill In 4-2 Win Over D-Backs

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Barry Zito outpitched Trevor Cahill in a matchup of former Oakland Athletics All-Stars, Brandon Belt hit an RBI triple and the San Francisco Giants beat the Arizona Diamondbacks 4-2 on Monday.

Gregor Blanco doubled twice and drove in a run for his second two-double game in four days and made a pretty game-ending catch on the warning track in right with two runners aboard. Blanco also scored on a double-steal to get things started in San Francisco’s three-run first.

Majors hits leader Melky Cabrera followed up his four-hit day in Sunday’s 3-2 win at Miami with a 1-for-3 outing to push his total to 74 hits—on an afternoon when home run king Barry Bonds was among the sellout crowd of 42,295 and stopped by the clubhouse for a visit before the game.
