Giants' Brett Pill paces 21-hit attack in victory 

Seven Giants players recorded multiple hits in an 11-1 split-squad rout of the Arizona Diamondbacks on Sunday.
First baseman Brett Pill collected three hits, including a triple, scored a pair of runs and also knocked in two.

New additions Melky Cabrera, Angel Pagan and Ryan Theriot all added two hits apiece in the 21-hit outburst.

Six Giants pitchers combined to limit the Diamondbacks to seven hits. Brian Burress picked up the victory by tossing two scoreless innings.

The game was delayed 41 minutes by a swarm of bees, which took up residence in right-center field in the top of the second inning.

Madison Bumgarner made his spring debut Sunday, giving up one run while striking out four in 2²⁄³ innings of work in a game that wound up in a tie. Shortstop Brandon Crawford drove in Connor Gillaspie for the Giants’ lone run.
