Bumgarner, one of the best-hitting pitchers of his generation, became the first starting pitcher intentionally allowed to bat at an AL ballpark since Ken Brett for the White Sox in 1976 — and he started the Giants’ biggest inning with a rocket of a leadoff double in the third.
The Giants scored six times in the inning, then added two more in the fourth against left-hander Dillon Overton in a 12-6 victory over the A’s at the Coliseum, avoiding a four-game sweep.
Tampa Bay’s Andy Sonnanstine had to bat for himself in a game in 2009 because of a lineup card mixup, and Billy Martin had pitcher Rick Rhoden DH in a game in 1988, but Rhoden was not the starting pitcher.
The first two pitches I threw to him I thought were strikes and the umpire didn’t really help me out with those, which led me to having to put one in the zone so he could call it a strike.
 came the back-to-back homers: a three-run shot by Buster Posey and a solo shot by Brandon Crawford.
A’s reliever Fernando Rodriguez walked in two runs in the ninth, and Marc Rzepczynski gave up a two-run single by Belt.
Crisp hit a two-run double in the bottom of the inning.
The A’s earlier runs came on a solo homer by Marcus Semien in the first, his 16th of the year; an RBI single by Jake Smolinski in the fourth; and a two-run homer by Yonder Alonso in the seventh, his second in two nights.

The Giants’ 50-31 record midway through the season has outpaced the 2010, 2012 and 2014 World Series champions at this point in the schedule.
 healthy after being limited by injuries much of his previous four years in San Francisco, Pagan was the Giants’ last position player to receive a day off.
 the 34-year-old Puerto Rican pulled up between first and second after slapping an RBI single in San Francisco’s May 1 win over the Mets.
The injury lingered, and 10 days removed from a two-week inactive stint, he landed on the disabled list.
After a three-game rehab assignment with Triple-A Sacramento, Pagan was scheduled back in the lineup June 15 against the Brewers.
In the bottom of the fourth, Pagan missed a Marcus Semien flyball at the warning track as Oakland’s shortstop reached third base on the error.
The youngsters are turning the U. S. Olympic trials into a coming-out party.
Not to be left out was Anthony Ervin, another Cal alum, whose fourth-place finish earns him a spot on the relay team and a third Olympic berth at age 35.
Bent over and gasping for air after the race, Ervin, who tied for gold in the 50 free with teammate Gary Hall Jr.
