Baseball: Athletics Trounce Giants


In major-league baseball, Oakland pitcher Matt Cain tossed a one-hitter while preventing Barry Bonds from hitting a landmark home run as the Athletics beat the San Francisco Giants 6-0.

Bonds had two singles in Sunday's interleague contest, but failed to hit his 715th career homer to pass Babe Ruth for second place on the career home run list.

St. Louis slugger Albert Pujols leads the majors in homers this season. He hit his 22nd in the Cardinals' 10-3 win over the Kansas City Royals.

The New York Mets edged their cross-town rivals, the Yankees, 4-3, led by Carlos Delgado's three-run homer.

Cleveland's Grady Sizemore drove in the game-ending run with two outs in the 10th inning to give the Indians a 3-2 win over the Pittsburgh Pirates.

Other interleague winners were the Devil Rays, Tigers, Nationals, Phillies, Astros, Brewers, Cubs, Rockies, Mariners and Dodgers.

The Washington Nationals beat the Baltimore Orioles, 3-1. The Philadelphia Phillies snapped a five-game losing streak with a 10-5 pasting of the Boston Red Sox.
