Brett Pill cranked a three-run homer and Eric Surkamp won his third Cactus League game as the San Francisco Giants defeated the Cleveland Indians 5-3 at Goodyear Park today. [box score]

Pill’s home run came off Indians starter Kevin Slowey, after Buster Posey singled and Brandon Belt walked.

It was Pill’s second four-bagger of the spring.

Surkamp allowed two runs on four hits and two walks in five innings. He struck out three.

Outfielder Gregor Blanco went 1-for-4 and has hit safely in 12 of the 15 games in which he has played.

Top Giants hitter: Pill (1-for-3, HR, 3 RBI, BB)
Top Giants pitcher: Surkamp (5 IP, 4 H, 2 BB, 2 R, 3 K, W)
Key moment of the game: Pill’s three-run blast off Slowey in the fourth.

The Giants (12-6-3) will head over to Salt River Fields at Talking Stick to take on the Colorado Rockies (5-10) tomorrow. RHP Tim Lincecum (2-0, 4.50) will make his fifth spring start. LHP Jamie Moyer (1-0, 1.80) is on the hill for the Rox.

NOTES: Posey went 2-for-4 and raised his average to .294 … Hector Sanchez went 2-for-2 with a double. He’s batting .480 … Indians left fielder Shelley Duncan hit his league-leading 4th home run of the spring, a two-run shot off Surkamp in the fourth inning … Emmanuel Burriss left the game in the fourth inning with soreness in his right hamstring. Sounds like it was more of a precautionary measure than anything else.
