Dodger Stadium, Los Angeles, California
• Summary: Barry Bonds went 1-for-2 with a pair of walks, but the Giants used a three-run first inning to help Barry Zito to his second win in 10 starts. Zito pitched 5 2/3 innings, allowing one run on seven hits while striking out five.
• Unsung hero: Steve Kline got his second save, entering with the bases loaded, and retiried Luis Gonzalez on an RBI grounder and then got James Loney on a bases-loaded grounder.
• Losing effort: The Dodgers' Russell Martin was 2-for-3 with an RBI while Rafael Furcal and Nomar Garciaparra both had 2-for-4 days at the plate.
• Injury update: Ex-Giant Jeff Kent missed his third straight game with a strained hamstring he injured in the final game at Colorado last weekend.
• Figure this: Los Angeles is 4-9 in its last 13 games and is one game back of Arizona in the NL West.
• Quotable: "They want to get him out and have Bonds move on to another pitcher. The same way I would." -- Zito, on Dodgers cheering against Bonds
