Seventh heaven for A's
Keith Ginter, who had already tallied two sacrifice flies in the game, delivered the knockout blow to the Giants, bashing a three-run homer in the A's seventh-inning rally. Bobby Kielty matched a career high with four hits as the A's took the first game of the Bay Bridge Series.

Keith Ginter had only one hit -- a home run -- but notched five RBIs. (Jeff Chiu/AP)
A three-run fifth inning, highlighted by Moises Alou's fourth homer of the year, gave the Giants a short-lived lead, as Kirk Rueter and a parade of relievers couldn't make the advantage stick. Ray Durham ran his hitting streak to 11 games in the loss.
