Philadelphia, PA. -- Get a yellow legal pad and write "good" on the left side, draw a line down the middle and write "bad" on the right side. The right side of the Rays' ledger simply had too many entries on Saturday afternoon.

Oakland, CA.--
Ryan Theriot wasn't around to discuss his game-saving catch for the Giants. That seemed fitting, though. It was as if he employed the same magic he performed with his glove to make himself vanish.

Dashing at full speed into short right-center field, Theriot grabbed Jemile Weeks' bid for a bloop hit that would have completed a remarkable ninth-inning comeback for the Oakland A's. Instead, the Giants held on Saturday to prevail, 9-8, for their second consecutive Interleague victory over their cross-bay rivals.
