SAN FRANCISCO -- As awful as the San Francisco Giants have played for most of the last month, they are back in an enviable position: first place in the NL West. Cheap Sheldon Rankins Jersey . Beating their Bay Area rivals to get back there was a nice bonus, too. Hunter Pence homered and drove in two runs, Matt Cain tossed six strong innings and the Giants spoiled Jason Hammels debut for Oakland with a 5-2 victory over the Athletics on Wednesday night. San Francisco, which had lost 20 of 27, moved percentage points ahead of the Dodgers in the division. "If you look at how things have gone, you find that amazing," Giants manager Bruce Bochy said. "Its all from the good work that happened earlier. Weve got to get back on track." For one night, they did. Cain (2-7) allowed two runs and five hits for his first win since May 15 against Miami. He struck out four and walked two to help the Giants snap major league-leading Oaklands six-game winning streak. "Felt really good," Cain said. "Guys came up with some big, clutch hits when we needed them. Guys kept putting pressure on those guys, which is always nice." Santiago Casilla got three quick outs for his fourth save. Hammel, acquired by the As along with fellow right-hander Jeff Samardzija from the Chicago Cubs last week for three top prospects, had anything but a clean opener with Oakland. He pitched with runners on base for most of the night, and his left thumb on his glove hand cramped up and looked disjointed at one point. He left after giving up six hits and three runs -- two earned -- in five innings, striking out three and walking three. Hammel said his thumb was fine afterward and he was bothered more by his performance. "Tonight was a grind and they grinded me pretty good," he said. Stephen Vogt homered and Jed Lowrie had an RBI single for Oakland. The As shut down the Giants 5-0 and 6-1 in the first two games of the Bay Bridge Series in Oakland and looked every bit like a team with the best record in baseball while doing it. Back in the comforts of glitzy AT&T Park, though, the Giants offence finally showed signs of life. San Francisco finished with 10 hits and took advantage of most of its scoring opportunities. With one out in the second inning, Yoenis Cespedes bobbled Joe Paniks single in left field for an error. By the time the strong-armed Cespedes corralled the ball and threw home, Gregor Blanco had crossed the plate. Buster Poseys RBI single gave the Giants a 2-0 lead in the third. Vogt homered leading off the fourth, sending a slider from Cain over the stands in right and onto the walkway outside the ballpark for his third long ball this season. Pence came back with his own long ball in the fourth to put the Giants up 3-1. It was Pences 12th home run and first since June 21 at Arizona. "It was a pretty clean game," Posey said. While the Giants finally got the bats going, Cain kept finding ways to minimize the As rallies. The right-hander got Coco Crisp to ground out with two runners on in the fifth, which came after he misfired to second base on a potential double-play ball earlier in the inning. And after Lowries two-out single sliced San Franciscos lead to 3-2 in the sixth, Cain got Derek Norris to ground out, stranding two runners. Oakland got a brief scare in the fifth when Hammels left thumb somehow bent awkwardly in the middle of Blancos at-bat. An As trainer worked on the thumb for several minutes, then the pitcher got Blanco to ground out. Pence hit an RBI single in the sixth before lefty Eric OFlahertys wild pitch helped the Giants score another run to go ahead 5-2. Oaklands offence was kept quiet the rest of the way. Jeremy Affeldt, Sergio Romo and Casilla each pitched one perfect inning of relief. NOTES: The Giants optioned OF Juan Perez to Triple-A Fresno after the game.

It was the type of mistake that could prove costly for Toronto in the playoffs, but this time the Raptors were able to overcome it. DeMar DeRozan scored 14 of his 30 points in the fourth quarter, and the Raptors tied a franchise record for victories with a 116-107 win over the Detroit Pistons on Sunday. Lowry scored 28 points before fouling out with 5:51 remaining. "I was just glad the guys won it without me," Lowry said. "DeMar was rested going into the fourth quarter, and he really took over down the stretch. Thats what happens when he is aggressive -- he can take over a game." The Raptors (47-33) had already clinched the Atlantic Division, and the victory over Detroit was their 10th in 14 games. Toronto has reached the 47-win mark for the third time.

"I just tried to make plays for us and get a couple of easy baskets." DeRozans three-point play put the Raptors ahead 97-95 and started an 11-2 run.

It was 42-26 at the end of the quarter, and DeRozans four-point play early in the second made it 46-28. "We had no rhythm early on and we didnt guard. You give a team 42 points in the first quarter, I dont know what your chance of winning is, but I would think in this league its pretty low," Pistons interim coach John Loyer said. "Then you really have to fight uphill the whole way. But to our guys credit, they fought an uphill battle." The Pistons trailed 63-49 at halftime but made a game of it by outscoring Toronto 37-24 in the third. Detroit dominated the boards, finishing with 21 offensive rebounds. Greg Monroe had 23 points and 10 rebounds. Lowrys fifth foul came with 6:11 remaining. He then fouled out going after a rebound on a missed shot by DeRozan.
