OAKLAND (KRON) — The number eight was significant Saturday night at the Oakland Coliseum.

After eight runs in the eighth inning, the San Francisco Giants defeated the Oakland Athletics by a final score of 10-5 in day one of the “Battle of the Bay” series.

Before the number eight came along, Giants catcher Stephen Vogt had to deal with the number two.

The former A’s player stepped to the plate with two on base and two outs.

With “I believe” on the back of his jersey, he hit a three-run home run to set the Giants season record for runs in an inning to eight.

The two Bay Area teams play the second and final game of the series Sunday at 1 p.m.
