PHILADELPHIA — Madison Bumgarner struck out 11, overcoming a grand slam by Jeff Francoeur to pitch the Giants past the Philadelphia Phillies 7-5 Saturday.

Bumgarner (7-2) gave up the slam and a solo homer by Andres Blanco. The reigning World Series MVP gave up six hits and walked none in eight innings.

Bumgarner hit two singles and drove in a run as the Giants posted their fifth straight road win.

Nori Aoki got three hits and drove in two runs. He raised his major league-leading road batting average to .407.

Santiago Casilla pitched a scoreless ninth for his 17th save in 19 chances.

The start of the game was delayed 29 minutes by rain.

Angel Pagan's RBI single and Brandon Belt's sacrifice fly made it 2-0 in the first. The Giants scored four more in the third to go in front 6-0.

Matt Duffy had an RBI single and Gonzalez's balk allowed the second run to score. After Philadelphia manager Ryne Sandberg lifted Gonzalez, Aoki singled up the middle off Dustin McGowan to score two runs.

The Phillies got four runs back in the fourth. Bumgarner had been cruising along, allowing one single, before he sandwiched a pair of singles around a hit batter to load the bases with no outs. After Darin Ruf struck out, Francoeur drove a 1-0 pitch into the seats in left field for his second career grand slam.

The Giants tacked a run on in the seventh on Bumgarner's RBI single off Elvis Araujo to make it 7-4.

Blanco hit a solo homer with one out in the eighth to pull Philadelphia within two runs.

Joe Panik singled in the Giants' first to increase his hitting streak to 11 consecutive games.

Belt went 0 for 3 and is now 0 for 17 in Philadelphia. He was the lone Giants player in the starting lineup to go hitless.
