Derek Norris hit a tying, two-run, homer in the eighth inning and the Oakland Athletics scored on a wild pitch in the ninth to beat the split-squad San Francisco Giants 7-6 on Friday.
The Giants had a bad season in 2013, but if Matt Cain and Ryan Vogelsong bounce back, they could once again be contenders in the NL West.
MASON CITY, Iowa (AP) — The Iowa Court of Appeals has upheld the first-degree murder conviction of a Mason City man who shot a man in a convenience store parking lot.
Big-time pitching by Giants reliever Jeremy Affeldt.
Brandon Crawford just made another terrific play at shortstop, barehanding a grounder that deflected off Giants starter Matt Cain and making an accurate, off-balance throw to get speedy rookie Quintin Berry at first.
Tigers starter Max Scherzer was lifted with one out in the top of the seventh. With a runner on second, rookie Drew Smyly retired Brandon Crawford on a flyball and Octavio Dotel got Angel Pagan on a grounder to second to keep the score tied.
Sergio Romo closes it out by throwing a called third strike past Triple Crown winner Miguel Cabrera.
Marco Scutaro comes through again for the Giants _ who else?

Armed and accelerating, the San Francisco Giants became the first team to throw consecutive World Series shutouts in nearly a half-century, blanking Miguel Cabrera and the Detroit Tigers 2-0 on a chilly Saturday night for a commanding 3-0 lead.
Pablo Sandoval decided sometime long ago that he was going to swing at the first pitch of his second at-bat.
Another squandered opportunity for the Tigers, who just can't manage to get a big hit.
The final score is Giants 2, Tigers 0.
"I'm nowhere near where I want to be," Crawford said. "I still have to get my timing back and feel things out a little bit."
"You can take all the batting practice you want but it's completely different when you start facing pitchers," Crawford said.
