OAKLAND, Calif. Bottes Ugg Pour Bebe . - The Oakland Athletics began the month of May in quite a funk. Now, they are right back on track thanks to solid starting pitching and timely hitting. The defending World Series champion San Francisco Giants, meanwhile, are searching to find their top form as June nears. Derek Norris hit a two-run homer in the second, Jarrod Parker pitched seven strong innings and the Athletics beat the Giants 6-3 on Tuesday night for their fifth straight victory. "Were doing a lot of things right," Norris said. "Were keeping it simple." Adam Rosales homered in the eighth for the As to snap an 0-for-24 stretch since he connected against Kansas City on May 17. The As are on a roll in this interleague Bay Bridge Series between the two reigning West division winners as it shifts to San Francisco for two starting Wednesday night. "To be winning the fashion we are right now and really with guys struggling, it means everybody feels like theyre part of it and contributing," manager Bob Melvin said. Nate Freiman hit an RBI single and Jed Lowrie and Seth Smith each drew bases-loaded walks as Oakland (30-23) won for the 10th time in 11 games to move seven games above .500 for the first time since April 19. Hunter Pence homered in the ninth and hit an RBI single in the first to give Mike Kickham a lead before he took the mound for his major league debut. Parker (3-6) quickly settled into a nice groove. He reached seven innings for the third straight start, earning his second victory over the last five starts after consecutive winless outings. "His stuffs always been there. Its a matter of going out there and doing it," Melvin said. The 24-year-old Kickham (0-1) worked a clean first inning on nine pitches, hitting 92 mph on his first pitch. He reached 94 several times, too. But the As made contact. Norris connected in the second for his second home run. Yoenis Cespedes hit a one-out double in the third for the first 10-game hitting streak of his career. That sparked a mound visit by Giants pitching coach Dave Righetti with a runner also on third. Josh Donaldson was intentionally walked, then Lowrie drew a bases-loaded walk to make it 3-1. "You can talk about big hits, but you can also talk about big walks," Melvin said. Freiman followed with an RBI single to chase Kickham. He was tagged for four runs on four hits in 2 1-3 innings with three strikeouts and four walks as the Giants lost for the seventh time in their last eight road games. "He showed good stuff early. Im sure he was amped up and then he got behind hitters but I liked what he showed," manager Bruce Bochy said. "Its his first outing and thats always one to put behind you." Chad Gaudin, who was in the mix to make the start Tuesday night in place of the injured Ryan Vogelsong, wound up pitching three innings. Bochy has said Gaudin is too valuable in relief to use him for a spot start. Kickham might just be up for one more considering the Giants have three upcoming off days and dont need a fifth starter until mid-June. He sat at a clubhouse table before the game receiving guidance from Vogelsong, who is recovering from last weeks surgery on his broken pitching hand. "Obviously, I came into it expecting a little heightened emotions but I was able to do a better job than I thought I would (keeping them in check)," Kickham said. "After that first pitch it was like any other game. But mistakes here are magnified. I dont get away with what I do in Triple-A." Marco Scutaro singled in the first as designated hitter against his former club. He scored on Pences single. After that, Parker retired the next nine Giants batters in order before Brandon Belts fourth-inning double. Scutaro reached on a three-base error by As right fielder Chris Young in the eighth but San Francisco failed to capitalize. Pence hit his eighth home run of the year off As closer Grant Balfour. The Giants missed centre fielder and leadoff man Angel Pagan at the top of the lineup. He underwent an MRI on his injured left hamstring that revealed bursitis. He hasnt played since hurting himself in Saturdays game before his inside-the-park home run to win it 6-5 in the 10th inning against Colorado. NOTES: Giants RHP Santiago Casilla underwent surgery to remove a cyst in his right leg. Bochy didnt have any details on the time table for his recovery. ... Bochy is considering giving his pitchers in a struggling rotation an extra day of rest with the off days. ... As RF Josh Reddick was DH for Triple-A Sacramento in his rehab assignment from a sprained right wrist and will play there for a few more days. ... Oaklands pitchers were gearing up to bat when the series shifts to San Francisco for two games starting Wednesday night. ... Boston Marathon bombing survivor Aaron Hern, 12, threw out the ceremonial first pitch. He is from nearby Martinez. ... Norris hit his first career HR against the Giants last June 23. ... Kickham has been a roommate of manager Bochys pitching son, Brett, throughout the minor leagues. ... The As faced a lefty starter for the fourth time in five games. Ugg Femme Soldes .

Australian golfer Adam Scott is out of contention at the WGC-HSBC Champions event in Shanghai after shooting a disastrous eight-over-par 80 in Fridays second round.The former world No.1 had been reasonably placed after an opening-round three-under 69.Scott is five-over-par on 149 at the halfway mark in a four-way tie in 61st place and a whopping 18 strokes off the lead.The best-placed Australian is Scott Hend on 144 after two even-par rounds.Rory McIlroy, despite a marked improvement on day two, still faces an uphill battle to claim a fourth win of the year in Shanghai.McIlroy managed just two birdies in an opening 71 at Sheshan International on Thursday to trail overnight leader Rikard Karlberg by seven shots.Although the four-time major winner carded seven birdies in a six-under second-round 66, he only reduced his deficit by one shot due to a brilliant 65 from Japans Hideki Matsuyama.Matsuyama, who is a career-high 10th in the world, had 10 birdies and four bogeys in an opening 66 and added four more birdies and two bogeys in a front nine of 34.The 24-year-old then started the back nine with a hat-trick of birdies and picked up further shots on the 14th and 18th to finish 13-under-par, three shots ahead of American Bill Haas and defending champion Russell Knox.Haas carded a second consecutive 67 while Scotlands Knox, looking to become only the second player after Tiger Woods to successfully defend a WGC event, was 10 under overall too share second with Haas.

I was just able to capitalise on some of the good drives that I hit today and being able to hole a few more putts makes a big difference at the end of the day.Ive been able to come back from six behind with 18 to play so, over 36 holes, a lot of things can happen.Hidekis playing very well and will be tough to catch but, from what I saw out there today, if I can keep that sort of golf going over the next two days, I should have a chance.
