OAKLAND, Calif. -- The San Francisco Giants have dominated the baseball headlines in the Bay Area since winning the World Series in 2010 and 2012. The Oakland Athletics have swiped most the attention back after taking over the best record in the majors this summer. And when the two teams met for the first time this season, both continued to head in opposite directions. Jesse Chavez matched a career high with nine strikeouts in six innings, and three relievers pitched scoreless ball to lead the As past the Giants 5-0 on Monday night for their fifth straight win. "Its exciting to be part of the Oakland Athletics right now," said third baseman Josh Donaldson, one of six As players named to the AL All-Star team. The As have been among baseballs best and most consistent clubs all season. Then they made a surprising trade to get right-handers Jeff Samardzija and Jason Hammel from the Chicago Cubs on Friday for three minor leaguers, including top prospect Addison Russell. Oakland also leads the majors with their All-Star selections, the clubs most since 1975. Sundays announcement didnt even include Samardzija, who was selected as a National League All-Star but is ineligible to play. The banged-up Giants, on the other hand, had lost 18 of 23 to fall out of first place in the NL West -- where they once held a 9 1/2-game lead over the Dodgers -- but showed signs of coming out of their slump by winning two in a row at San Diego over the weekend. Instead, the two-time defending AL West champion As put together the kind of all-around effort theyve had most of the season in the Bay Bridge Series opener. Alberto Callaspo hit a two-run double, and three others drove in a run to power the As in front of an announced sellout crowd of 36,067 festive fans at the Coliseum. The worn-down stadium had a colorful sprinkling of green and gold from Oakland revelers mixed with the orange and black of San Francisco supporters -- many of whom left before the final out. Chavez (7-5) allowed four hits and two walks to help extend the As record to a major-league best 56-33. Fernando Abad, Dan Otero and Ryan Cook shut down San Francisco the final three innings. "We all like to feed off each other," Chavez said. "Were just playing good baseball, and were excited to be back home." Ryan Vogelsong (5-6) lost his third straight start for the Giants, who had just five hits. The right-hander gave up five hits and three runs in 5 1-3 innings. He struck out four, walked two and hit a pair of batters, leading to the As first two runs. Oakland started its scoring surge after home plate umpire Paul Nauert ruled Craig Gentry was hit by a pitch on his hand leading off the fifth. Giants manager Bruce Bochy challenged the play, which was upheld after a video review. Gentry stole second, advanced to third on Coco Crisps bunt single and scored on John Jasos groundout for the As first run. Josh Donaldson also was hit by a pitch by Vogelsong on his left hand leading off the sixth. Nauert originally called it a strike before seeing Donaldsons hand swell. Then Nauert asked first base umpire Angel Hernandez if Donaldson, who said his hand was just sore afterward, swung at the pitch. Hernandez signalled no, and Bochy came out and had a heated conversation with Nauert after the call, wondering how it could be reversed. "Then it got ugly," Bochy said. Callaspo came through later in the inning with a two-run double off Juan Gutierrez to extend Oaklands lead to 3-0. Brandon Moss and Donaldson each drove in a run off Gutierrez in the seventh after Giants shortstop Brandon Crawford committed two throwing errors. The teams will play in Oakland again on Tuesday night before the series shifts to San Francisco for the final two games.

Barrichello, who moved to IndyCar this season after a record 325 races in Formula One the past 19 years, topped 200 mph during his rookie oval test Monday at the high-banked 1 1/2-mile Texas Motor Speedway. "It was bloody fast, and very, very much different than anything I have ever tried," Barrichello said after his nearly hour-long session, when he was the only car on the track. "Ive had places that in Formula One that they say, Oh, its almost flat and its a big corner and its a big challenge. But the walls were never so close." The 39-year-old Brazilian started his test after KV Racing Technology teammate and old friend Tony Kanaan first ran some warmup laps in the car. "Im truly excited from what I just had," Barrichello said. "But my mind is still processing everything that has just happened." That rookie session for Barrichello came before joining nine other cars in an open test at the track. Barrichello is the biggest name to move to an American-based open-wheel series since F1 champion Nigel Mansell joined CART in 1993 and won five races and the series title that season. Barrichello finished second in tthe F1 drivers championship in 2002 and 2004, both times behind seven-time champion Michael Schumacher.dddddddddddd. "It was fun for me to see him nervous in a race car. I dont think Ive ever seen him like this," Kanaan said. "It was quite exciting to see how excited he got, and how happy he got out of the car saying how awesome it is. ... Im glad he liked it. Now the real challenge begins, which it will be to learn as much as he can, and try to get faster." Since announcing his move earlier this year, Barrichellos first four IndyCar races have been on road and street courses. He has finished all four races and is 11th in the points standings. The next race is the Indianapolis 500 in three weeks, which will be his oval racing debut. The series will be at Texas on June 9. "Its going to be a learning process," Kanaan said. "I think hes going to be OK, but its going to take him a little bit." Barrichello is planning to participate in the full 16-race schedule, which includes five ovals. He sees this as an exciting, new challenge -- like his first oval laps Monday. "Otherwise, I would have stayed home," he said. "Im getting (too) old to have exciting moments if I dont enjoy. So I truly love this. This is awesome." Cheap Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Wholesale Jerseys Wholesale NFL Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys ' ' '
