San Francisco has scored 22 runs on 37 hits in three games since All-Star outfielder Melky Cabrera was suspended Wednesday for 50 games following a positive test for testosterone.

The Giants followed up the 15 hits they had in Friday night's 10-1 win over San Diego, when they broke loose for an eight-run inning, with 14 more on Saturday. Hunter Pence drove in two runs and Buster Posey had three hits and a sacrifice fly.
