Giants get shut out, split series

Jason Vargas was too tough for the Giants. Better that it happened now, I supposed. Madison Bumgarner has thrown 27 innings this season over four starts, which puts him among the league leaders.

Vargas’ ability to handle Oakland made for a slightly different lineup; Stephen Vogt usually doesn’t start against left-handers, but manager Bob Melvin said that a left-handed batter might be worth a try against Vargas’ changeup. First baseman Ryon Healy certainly appeared frustrated; after an inside pitch from Vargas in the second inning, he...
