The Giants won this one on the strength of Ryan Vogelsong’s arm – much needed. Vogelsong threw a shutout through seven, his longest start of the season. He gave up only  two hits, both to Michael Bourn, and he walked two and struck out six. It was a dominant quality start.

Pablo Sandoval’s bat woke up and he got on board twice with base hits, but the day belonged to Brandon Hicks who hit a three-run homer with two outs in the ninth inning to give the  Giants a 4-1 victory over the Cleveland Indians, completing a three-game sweep.

The first interleague series was a good one for the Giants who produced runs when necessary and pitched and played defense to suit their park.

Just enough runs.

The bats worked.

The Dodgers lost in Colorado 6-1, so the Giants now have a full game lead over the division.
