SAN FRANCISCO - Barry Zito outdid his old Oakland team, Brandon Belt drove in three runs, and the San Francisco Giants beat the Oakland Athletics in the Bay Bridge Series opener 8-6 on Friday night

Hector Sanchez had two RBIs to back Zito (3-1), who won the 2002 AL Cy Young Award across the bay in Oakland but left for a $126 million, seven-year deal with the Giants before the 2007 season.

Josh Donaldson homered, doubled in a run and hit a three-run double off Steve Edlefsen for the A's, giving Donaldson career-bests of three hits and five RBIs. But Oakland couldn't overcome a shaky night by starter Jarrod Parker (1-2) and lost their 10th straight in San Francisco's waterfront ballpark dating to 2009.
