Up next for Giants: San Francisco faces Kansas City for the first time this spring on Saturday. Left-hander Barry Zito returns to Cactus League competition after keeping his arm limber by pitching five innings in a Minor League intrasquad game on Monday. Zito thrived in his first three exhibition starts, winning his lone decision and posting a 2.79 ERA. This will be the second of five consecutive days in which the Giants play a home game. Sunday they play a split-squad doubleheader, with one group traveling to Mesa to face the Cubs and another contingent remaining at home to confront Oakland.
