S.J. GIANTS 9, Bakersfield 5

Ricky Oropesa and Jarrett Parker each hit two-run doubles in a five-run sixth that broke a 4-4 tie, and San Jose went on to win 9-5 at Sam Lynn Ballpark on Friday night.

It was the second comeback win in two days for the Giants, who on Thursday needed 12 innings and nearly 41/2 hours to get past the Blaze, 4-3.

On Friday, the Giants broke through when the first five batters in the sixth reached base, capped by Oropesa's second go-ahead hit of the game and his third in two days. He had a two-run single in the fifth to break a 1-1 tie.

The Giants finished with 17 hits in all, led by Ryan Lollis' four hits.

Late Thursday, the Giants beat the Blaze when Joe Panik scored on Oropesa's go-ahead single in the top of the 12th.
