PHOENIX -- Hunter Pence raced to first base to reach on a fielders choice, then took off for second. White Nike Air Vapormax . Once there, he raced toward third, stealing another base and inducing a throwing error that allowed him to score San Franciscos first run. Full Throttles daring baserunning was just what the Giants needed to break out of their offensive funk. Pence kick started San Franciscos offence with his aggressiveness, hitting a homer and scoring three runs to help the Giants pound the Arizona Diamondbacks 10-5 Saturday night. "Hes trying to live up to that name Full Throttle," Giants manager Bruce Bochy said. "Hes a guy that the team feeds off his energy. He knows weve been struggling offensively and hes not afraid to push the envelope a little bit. It ended up being big." Madison Bumgarner (5-4) gave the Giants a quality start, pitching five effective innings to end a four-game losing streak. His teammates gave him some rare run support, too, roughing up Trevor Cahill (3-7) while scoring two more runs than in the previous six games combined. Buster Posey hit a two-run homer in San Franciscos six-run fourth inning and added a run-scoring single in the sixth. The bottom of the Giants lineup came through as well; Brandon Crawford set a career-high with four hits in the No. 8 spot and Brandon Belt added three more of San Franciscos 15 hits. Pence was the catalyst, scoring the opening run with his dash around the bases, another after hitting his 200th career double in the fourth and adding a leadoff homer in the seventh to give the Giants extra cushion after the Diamondbacks tried to rally. "He has a knack for doing that," Bumgarner said. "He gets everyone excited and makes it fun to play." He made it rough on the Diamondbacks, who had been on a roll. Paul Goldschmidt matched Luis Gonzalezs 2002 team record with an RBI in his eighth straight game on a groundout in Arizonas four-run sixth inning, but the Diamondbacks werent able to climb out of the big early hole of Cahills shortest outing of the season. "He really struggled throwing the ball in the corner today and they were swinging the bats good," Diamondbacks manager Kirk Gibson said. "You have to give them a little bit of credit. They just beat on us." Bumgarner pitched well in two previous starts against Arizona this season, allowing a run in 14 1-3 innings. He didnt a get a win in either, though, after the Giants scored only one total run for him. The lack of run support has been a common theme for the lefty this season. San Francisco averages 3.0 runs per game when he starts, sixth-lowest in the NL, and backed him up with two runs his past three starts combined. It may not have mattered anyway. Bumgarner allowed nine earned runs in 12 2-3 innings the past two starts. The Giants gave him plenty of help this time, matching the previous three games in the second inning thanks to Pence and Andres Torres. Pence manufactured one run, reaching on a fielders choice, stealing second and third, then scoring on catcher Miguel Monteros throwing error into left field. Torres made it 2-0 with a crafty slide around Montero on a close play at the plate after Crawfords double. The Giants poured it on in the fourth inning with six more runs, an outburst punctuated by Poseys nearly-touch-the-ceiling two-run homer that made it 8-0 and chased Cahill. Cahill allowed eight runs on nine hits in 3 2-3 innings after giving up five runs in five innings his last start. "It kind of happened quick," Cahill said. "I left a lot of balls up and when I got ahead and tried to put them away, I get it belt high and down the middle." Bumgarner rolled through the first five innings before being chased on A.J. Pollocks run-scoring double in the sixth. Goldschmidt followed with his RBI groundout off Ramon Ramirez to make it 9-2. Bumgarner allowed three runs on three hits. He also walked and scored in the sixth inning. "Bum was good," Bochy said. "I dont know if running the bases there (fatigued him), but he just started missing spots. But he did a great job and we had some good at-bats." Notes: Giants 3B Pablo Sandoval left in the fourth inning after aggravating a left foot strain. ... Diamondbacks fifth-round draft pick Jamie Westbrook, who played at Basha High School in nearby Chandler, took batting practice with the team before the game. ... Phoenix Coyotes captain Shane Doan was at Chase Field to work as a pregame analyst for FoxSports Arizona. ... Arizona LHP Tyler Skaggs, who will pitch Sundays series finale, will try to bounce back after allowing five runs in 5 2-3 innings against St. Louis his last outing. ...

NEW YORK -- Two winless teams looking to ensure a slow start doesnt snowball into something more serious will meet Sunday night when the New York Islanders host the Anaheim Ducks in the home opener at Barclays Center.Both teams fell to 0-2-0 with narrow road losses to Eastern Conference powerhouses Saturday, when the Islanders lost to the reigning Presidents Trophy-winning Washington Capitals 2-1 and the Ducks dropped a 3-2 decision to the defending Stanley Cup champion Pittsburgh Penguins.The Islanders, who are entering their second season at Barclays Center, are pointless through two games for the first time since 2006-07, which was the last time they opened 0-3-0. The Ducks are pointless after two games for the first time since 2010-11, which was also the most recent season in which they got off to an 0-3-0 start.Theyre playing (Saturday), too, so no excuse for tired legs, Islanders left winter Jason Chimera said.Especially for the Islanders, who merely had to take a train into Manhattan for Thursdays 5-3 loss to the crosstown New York Rangers before trekking 230 miles down I-95 to face the Capitals.Weve got to come back, Chimera said.

Halak is 7-5-0 in 13 career games against the Ducks and won the last time he opposed Anaheim on Dec., 21, 2015, when he had 27 saves in a 3-2 win at Barclays Center.For the Ducks, No. 1 goalie John Gibson is also likely to draw the start after backup Jonathan Bernier performed well (42 saves) in defeat Saturday.Gibson made his only career appearance against the Islanders last Dec. 21 when he relieved Frederik Andersen after a three-goal first period and stopped 18 of 19 shots he faced the rest of the way.
