Scott Kazmir justified his All-Star selection by firing seven scoreless innings, while Stephen Vogt knocked in three runs at the plate in the Oakland Athletics' 6-1 victory over the San Francisco Giants.

Josh Donaldson added a two-run homer as part of a 2-for-3 day that helped the Athletics close out the home-and-home Bay Bridge Series with wins in three of the four matchups. Vogt, Brandon Moss and John Jaso also finished with a pair of hits.

Kazmir (11-3) only allowed three hits and a walk while racking up nine strikeouts in an outstanding final appearance before Tuesday's Midsummer Classic in Minneapolis.

Tim Hudson (7-6) wasn't nearly as sharp for San Francisco, with the onetime Oakland standout rocked for six runs and nine hits over 5 1/3 innings to drop a fourth consecutive decision.
