San Francisco, CA.--
Barry Zito has repeated that focusing on the present, often from one pitch to the next, helps bolster his performance.

Yet by refreshing his attention on the here and now Monday night, Zito also moved the Giants a step toward meeting their long-term objective.

Zito ended a personal slump by surrendering three hits in seven innings and was joined in his resurgence by Pablo Sandoval, who doubled twice and drove in three runs to lead the Giants past the Los Angeles Dodgers, 8-0.
