San Francisco, CA (Sports Network) – Tony Abreu went 2-for-4 with a double,
triple and four RBI to lead the San Francisco Giants past the Los Angeles
Dodgers, 6-4, on Wednesday.

Pablo Sandoval added a pair of hits, including a two-run homer, and Buster
Posey had two hits and a pair of runs scored for the Giants.

Barry Zito (5-11) allowed two runs — one earned — on four hits over five
innings in what could be his final appearance with the ballclub.

The Giants have a $7 million buyout or an $18 million club option for 2014 on
Zito, whose stint with the Giants has been less than impressive. Zito is 62-80
with a 4.63 ERA in San Francisco since the 2007 season and is 4-11 with a 5.91
ERA in 28 games (24 starts) in 2013.

Sergio Romo stranded a runner in the ninth to notch his 37th save of the
season.

Matt Kemp went 3-for-4 with two RBI and A.J. Ellis drove in a run for the
Dodgers, who fell two games behind the Atlanta Braves for the second seed in
the NL Playoffs.

Ricky Nolasco (13-11) was touched for all six runs on eight hits while fanning
seven over 5 2/3 innings.
