Spring training: Giants 6, Athetics 3

Todd Wellemeyer continued to move toward locking down the No. 5 starting spot in the rotation and John Bowker continue to make the Giants think about where he fits in to their 2010 plans during the Giants’ 6-3 win over the Oakland Athletics on Thursday night.

Wellemeyer gave up two runs — one earned — in five innings of work. He gave up three hits and two walks, while striking out a spring-high four batters.

Bowker went 2 for 3 with two doubles, two runs scored and a walk.

Inside the box score

Aaron Rowand was 2 for 4 with two runs, a double and an RBI.

Juan Uribe was 2 for 3 with a walk.

Sergio Romo and Dan Runzler maintained their 0.00 spring ERA with scoreless innings.

Brian Wilson pitched a 1-2-3 ninth with two strikeouts for his second spring save.

Up next

The Giants (18-7) play the first of back-to-back games with the Angels at 1:05 p.m. Friday. Tim Lincecum will pitch his second-to-last spring outing, trying to match rotation-mates Matt Cain, Barry Zito and Jonathan Sanchez by pitching into the seventh inning.
