One game for the trophy.

After seeing the Giants score eight runs in the eighth inning on their way to a 10-5 win over the A's on Saturday night, the two Bay Area baseball teams meet for the final time this season at Oakland Coliseum on Saturday with The Bridge trophy on the line.

San Francisco will send Logan Webb (1-0, 1.80 ERA) to the mound, who will look to build upon an impressive debut. The rookie right-hander notched the win and limited the Diamondbacks to five hits and two runs (one earned) over five innings in an 11-6 victory last week.

Brett Anderson (10-9, 4.06 ERA) will get the start for Oakland. The left-hander held the Giants to two runs over six innings, but took the loss in a 3-2 defeat in San Francisco last week.

Steven Vogt, who hit a three-run homer in that explosive eighth inning Saturday night, will stay in the lineup and be Webb's batterymate. Buster Posey will be the designated hitter and bat third for the Giants.
