PHILADELPHIA — Brad Penny pitched five-hit ball over eight shutout innings in his first start with the San Francisco Giants, leading them to a 4-0 victory over the Philadelphia Phillies on Wednesday night.

Penny, a former Dodger, was back in his old All-Star form in his first outing since he was released last week by Boston. Penny went 7-8 with a 5.61 earned-run average this season -- including 1-6 in his last 11 starts.

Juan Uribe and Aaron Rowand homered for the Giants, who won their 73rd game to surpass last season's total.
