Barry Zito's rough run turned around in the first inning Monday at AT&T Park, and it happened while Zito was sitting in the dugout. The first three runs of an 8-0 win over the rival Los Angeles Dodgers came in large part because of an infield single, a flare that dropped between three Dodgers and a grounder that bounced off first base. The Giants scored a season-high four runs in the first inning, and after that the math was simple: Zito is 117-7 in his career when receiving at least four runs of support. "It's a crazy game," Zito said of the unorthodox early support. "You want to go throw out some good innings for the guys and get them back out there to hit."
