Crawford helps Giants beat A's with bat, glove

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - Eduardo Nunez drove in Brandon Belt on a fielder's choice grounder with two outs in the bottom of the eighth inning and the San Francisco Giants beat the Oakland Athletics 2-1 on Friday night.
Brandon Crawford homered to leading off the second inning, not long after making a sparkling defensive play to help the Giants to their fourth straight win.
Belt singled off Ryan Dull (2-1) leading off the ninth. Hunter Pence doubled off the right-field wall to move Belt to third before Crawford was intentionally walked to load the bases.
Nunez followed with sharp grounder to shortstop Richie Martin, who threw to second base for one out but the relay to first was late.
