St. Petersburg, FL. -- The White Sox offense has been on a roll lately, but it was a stellar pitching performance that was the difference Monday.

This year's National Geographic Bee was won by a 14-year-old. [That must be frustrating. You know where everything is but you're too young to drive there.]


San Francisco, CA.--
Barry Zito pitched into the eighth inning Monday and was sustained by a three-run first inning as the Giants topped the Arizona Diamondbacks, 4-2.

Zito (4-2), who won only three games all last season, allowed five D-backs to reach scoring position but stranded four of them. His shakiest inning was the third, when Justin Upton's ground-rule RBI double left runners on second and third with two outs. The left-hander escaped that jam by coaxing a harmless fly ball from Jason Kubel, who doubled one inning earlier.

Dario Franchitti took a drink of the traditional winner's beverage and then poured the rest on his head the way Dan Wheldon did after winning the Indianapolis 500 twice.
