SAN FRANCISCO -- A matchup of two of baseball's best left-handers ended up being one-sided Monday night at AT&T Park.
Philadelphia Phillies ace Cliff Lee continued his recent domination of the Giants, throwing eight strong innings in a 6-2 win that snapped the Giants' six-game winning streak. In their last 28 innings against Lee, the Giants have scored just two runs.
Madison Bumgarner had given up only seven runs in his first six starts, but he was charged with five earned runs in six innings on Monday and couldn't keep up with Lee's pace.
"I wasn't going to have a whole lot of room for error," Bumgarner said.
Any leeway he had disappeared early. After getting out of a bases-loaded jam in the first, Bumgarner again loaded the bases in the second inning. This time, Michael Young brought home two runs with a double. A wild pitch gave the Phillies a 3-0 lead.
Young led the charge again in the fifth, hitting a leadoff double and scoring two batters later on a sacrifice fly. Domonic Brown tacked on another run with a solo shot into McCovey Cove.
"He wasn't as sharp -- it's hard to be as sharp as he had been every start," manager Bruce Bochy said.
The Giants had just two hits through the first six innings, both by Hunter Pence. The right fielder was traded to San Francisco by the Phillies last summer and homered in his first at-bat against his former team. Pence's third hit of the night was a double to left to lead off the bottom of the eighth. He came around to score, but this comeback attempt against Lee proved to be short-lived.
The Giants beat Lee twice in the 2010 World Series when he was a Texas Ranger, but in six career regular season starts against the Giants, Lee is 5-0 and has given up just five earned runs in 51 innings.
"It's pretty simple," Bochy said. "He was just on top of his game, and we weren't doing much offensively. He's one of the best. He worked fast and pounded the strike zone with quality strikes. We knew we had our work cut out."
Mijares was put on the bereavement list April 29 after his grandmother, who had raised him after his parents were killed in a car accident, died in Venezuela. He was allowed to be on leave for three to seven days but couldn't make it back in time for Monday's game because of the long trip.
Mijares is expected to be added to the active roster Tuesday.
"I just need one more day," Pagan said. "I gave it a little try. I was running at 70 to 75 percent, and it felt good."
Bochy was hopeful Pagan could start Tuesday.
Frandsen recently tweeted a photo of him holding a "This is Sharks Territory" sign on the Phillies' field and has taken some heat from his Philadelphia-based Twitter followers.
"I love how people don't think you're a Bay Area fan because you're not here anymore," Frandsen said. "Come on, where did I grow up? I've been here since (the Warriors) were horrible."
Frandsen, 30, was back on the AT&T Park field for the first time since 2009, his last season with the Giants.
