OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) - Jesse Chavez matched a career high with nine strikeouts in six innings, and three relievers pitched scoreless ball to lead the Oakland Athletics past the San Francisco Giants 5-0 on Monday night for their fifth straight win.
Alberto Callaspo hit a two-run double, and three others drove in a run to power the A's in front of an announced sellout crowd of 36,067 festive fans.
The Coliseum had a colorful sprinkling of green and gold from Oakland revelers mixed with the orange and black of San Francisco supporters for the Bay Bridge Series opener.
Chavez (7-5) allowed four hits and two walks to help extend the A's record to a major-league best 56-33. Fernando Abad, Dan Otero and Ryan Cook shut down San Francisco the final three innings.
Ryan Vogelsong (5-6) lost his third straight start for the Giants, who had just five hits.
