The San Francisco Giants and Arizona Diamondbacks battle Saturday after SF edged Arizona 1-0 in Phoenix on Friday.
Brandon Belt's sacrifice fly during the first scored Angel Pagan for the Giants' only run of the game. It would turn out that was the only blood inflicted by either side. Tim Lincecum (8-13, 4.38 ERA) got the win for San Francisco.

Randall Delgado (4-6, 3.67 ERA) went an inning longer, seven frames, to take the loss for the D-Backs, who outhit the Giants 7-3. Adam Eaton and Miguel Montero had two hits apiece.
Trevor Cahill (5-10, 4.39 ERA) tosses next for Arizona, trying to stay perfect in August. Well, not flawless, but unbeaten, having already won twice in Pennsylvania, surrendering four runs during nine innings. At Chase Field, Cahill is just 1-4, only toppling the Colorado Rockies April 25 3-2, giving up a run during five frames.
The Philadelphia Phillies, Pittsburgh Pirates, SF and the St. Louis Cardinals scored 16 runs during 19 innings versus Cahill. The Giants supplied eight runs during 3.2 frames and marked in a run during eight innings of a 2-1 San Francisco victory over Cahill. The Giants are 33-of-122 with 16 RBIs against Cahill, a quarter from Marco Scutaro.
SF responds with Ryan Vogelsong (3-4, 5.58 ERA). The Giants are 2-3 when Vogelsong visits the rubber on the road. Vogelsong won his first away game at the Chicago Cubs on April 11, yielding five runs, four earned, during six frames.
At the San Diego Padres and Toronto Blue Jays, Vogelsong was roughed up for 14 runs, eight earned, during seven innings to assure a couple of losses. The Diamondbacks drove in four runs during seven frames off of Vogelsong in a San Francisco 5-4 victory. Arizona is 25-of-91 with six RBIs, a pair from Aaron Hill and Cody Ross, versus Vogelsong. The D-Backs will just be a little bit better in Game Two.
