Giants walk off with win, again

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Pinch hitter Guillermo Quiroz homered with one out in the 10th inning, lifting the San Francisco Giants to a 10-9 win over the Los Angeles Dodgers on Saturday night.

The Giants blew a 5-0 lead and wasted a bases-loaded opportunity in the ninth before Quiroz hit an 0-2 pitch from Dodgers closer Brandon League (0-1) into the left field stands. Quiroz pumped his fist as soon as he left the batter’s box and scurried around the bases with his first career walkoff hit. He is 4 for 6 this season as a pinch hitter.

The two teams combined for 19 runs, 30 hits and combined to strand 24 runners in a game that lasted 4 hours, 11 minutes.

A.J. Ellis homered and was one of six Dodgers with two hits as Los Angeles lost for the fifth time in seven games.
Colon, A’s come up short
NEW YORK (AP) — Bartolo Colon refuses to let bases on balls beat him. Two solo homers and Phil Hughes’ fastball took care of that instead as the New York Mets topped Oakland 4-2 on Saturday.

Hughes fired eight shutout innings of four-hit ball for his first win of the season, leading the New York Yankees past Colon and Oakland.

Chris Stewart and Lyle Overbay went deep against Colon, sending the A’s to their only loss in his six starts this year. Hughes (1-2) struck out nine and outpitched his former New York teammate for his first victory since Sept. 20 against Toronto.

Travis Hafner and Brett Gardner each had an RBI single for the Yankees, who bounced back from a 2-0 loss to A.J. Griffin in the series opener and improved to 7-2 on their 10-game homestand.
River Cats’ bats get hot to top 51s
Scott Moore went 2 for 3 with a home run and 3 RBIs as the Sacramento River Cats defeated the Las Vegas 51s 11-7 at Raley Field on Saturday.
Sacramento plated seven runs in the first inning, thanks to Conner Crumbliss’ three-run dinger with two outs.
Las Vegas spread seven runs over the first four innings but was shut down the rest of the way by Sacramento relievers Travis Banwart, Brian Gordon and Mike Ekstrom. Banwart (2-0) was credited with the win.
