SAN FRANCISCO (AP) -- Ryan Vogelsong pitched a season-high 7 2-3 innings and won his fifth straight decision, Nate Schierholtz hit an RBI triple and the San Francisco Giants bounced back from their first shutout of the season to beat the Texas Rangers 5-2 on Saturday. Ryan Theriot added an RBI single off Scott Feldman (0-5) while helping Vogelsong (5-2) run his unbeaten streak to seven outings since losing May 3 against Miami. Giants slugger Pablo Sandoval also hit an RBI single in his first game since May 2, pumping his right fist as he ran it out in the seventh. He went 1 for 4 and received a warm ovation each time he stood in to bat. The switch hitter came off the disabled list and returned to the starting lineup playing third base and batting third after undergoing May 4 surgery for a broken hamate bone in his left hand.

Another poor outing for Giants' Lincecum

A bad Tim Lincecum start no longer is a rarity. It's part of a trend. Nine hits and four walks in 5 2/3 innings? Thirty pitches in the first inning? For a guy who thinks WHIP (walks and hits over innings pitched) is one heck of a stat, Lincecum might not want to see his these days. As manager Bruce Bochy said of Lincecum, whose WHIP is 1.58, ERA is 6.00 and winless streak...

MRI shows no shoulder damage for Rangers' Holland

An MRI on the left shoulder of Texas Rangers starting pitcher Derek Holland showed no structural damage, the team said Friday.
