    Catcher: 'I'm happy I'm not back there'

    TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) -- Tony Torcato had a two-run single and the San Francisco Giants threw out four runners at the plate in a 6-5 win over the Chicago White Sox on Monday.

    Joe Borchard, trying to make the team as a reserve outfielder, homered in the second and sixth innings for the White Sox.

    After the game, Borchard found a $100 bill awaiting him at his locker, not knowing who it was from.

    He later learned A. J. Pierzynski had offered $100 to any of his new White Sox teammates that hit a home run off Brett Tomko.

    Tomko, along with several other San Francisco players, labeled Pierzynski a clubhouse "cancer" last season, after the catcher joined the Giants as a free agent.

    "I enjoyed my time as a Giant, but I'm not going to lie. I'm happy I'm not back there," said Pierzynski, who did not play Monday.

    "I met some great people and I still have some friends I talk to over there. But some people over there know what they are.

    "I've moved on. I wish them the best of luck and hopefully we can play them in the World Series and beat them."

    White Sox rookie starter Sean Tracey gave up five runs -- four earned -- in 2 1-3 innings, and Tomko gave up two runs and three hits over two innings for the Giants.
