AT&T Park, San Francisco, California
• Summary: Ray Durham lined a two-run hit to back a sharp outing by Matt Morris and help the Giants get into the victory column.
• Turning point: Durham's 5th-inning single drove in the eventual winning runs and Giants pitching made the lead stand up.
• Hero: Morris ceded five hits and one run in six innings for his first win of the season.• Figure this: The Giants averted their first 0-3 start since '84, two years before Barry Bonds made the majors with Pittsburgh.
• Quotable: "It's good to get on the board, believe me. The last thing we wanted to do is open up this thing getting swept." -- Giants skipper Bruce Bochy.
