SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - Last-minute lineup addition Travis Ishikawa had a three-run homer among his career-high four hits, Jonathan Sanchez won for the first time in more than a month and the San Francisco Giants beat the Atlanta Braves 8-2 on Monday.
Edgar Renteria hit a two-run double three batters after Emmanuel Burriss broke up a scoreless game with a fifth-inning RBI single.
The Giants, who had lost five of six and nine of 11, began a six-game homestand on a positive note following a frustrating 1-5 trip in which all the losses were by one run.
Ishikawa's homer in the seventh was his first this season and fourth of his career.
