Morse homers again in Giants' 5-1 win over Indians

SAN FRANCISCO — Michael Morse homered to back another stellar outing by Tim Hudson, and the San Francisco Giants beat the Cleveland Indians 5-1 on Friday night.

Hunter Pence had two hits and two RBIs while Brandon Crawford also knocked in a run to help the Giants win in their first interleague game of the season after going just 6-14 against the American League in 2013.

Hudson (3-1) scattered four hits over seven innings and struck out five. He walked two, ending an impressive streak of 30 consecutive innings without one.

Michael Bourn tripled and scored Cleveland's only run. Jason Kipnis and Nick Swisher added two hits apiece for the Indians, who lost for just the second time in six games.

Carlos Carrasco (0-3) allowed four runs over six innings.
