San Francisco, CA (Sports Network) - Angel Pagan's fourth-inning, bases-loaded
walk was the lone score, and Barry Zito tossed seven scoreless innings, as the
defending World Series champion San Francisco Giants topped St. Louis, 1-0, in
the opener of a three-game weekend set.
Zito (1-0) surrendered only three hits and walked three while fanning four for
the Giants, who raised their second championship banner in three seasons
in front of a sellout crowd on Friday.
Sergio Romo tossed a perfect ninth for his third save.
Jake Westbrook (0-1) was the hard-luck loser, charged with an unearned run and
six walks on six hits in 6 2/3 frames for the Cardinals, who have lost three
of four to start the year.
