PHILADELPHIA (AP) - The San Francisco Giants beat the Philadelphia Phillies 7-4 last night. Adam Duvall hit a two-run homer to spoil Cliff Lee's return from the disabled list. Hunter Pence had three hits and two RBIs, Buster Posey drove in two runs and the Giants remained tied with the Los Angeles Dodgers for first place in the NL West. Making his first start since May because of an elbow injury, Lee allowed six runs and 12 hits in 5 2-3 innings.

PHILADELPHIA (AP) - The San Francisco Giants have placed righty Matt Cain on the disabled list because of elbow inflammation. Cain is only 2-7 with a career-worst 4.18 ERA in 15 games. He's earning $20 million this season, and is in the middle of a $140 million, eight-year contract. Yusmeiro Petit will start tonight against the Phillies instead of Cain.
