San Francisco, CA (Sports Network) - Angel Pagan registered four hits and finished a home run shy of the cycle, as the San Francisco Giants beat the Atlanta Braves, 5-3, in the second test of a four-game set Friday at AT&T Park.

Pagan scored twice and also knocked in a run, while Marco Scutaro, Pablo Sandoval and Buster Posey added an RBI apiece for the Giants, who won their fifth straight contest.

Ryan Vogelsong (11-7) allowed three runs on four hits and a walk with five strikeouts over 6 1/3 frames to snap a two-game slid.

Javier Lopez recorded the final out of the eighth and then fired a perfect ninth to nail down his fourth save of the season.

Ben Sheets (4-4) gave up four runs on nine hits and three walks over 4 1/3 innings to absorb the loss.

Freddie Freeman hit two homers and Jason Heyward also went deep, but the Braves lost for the sixth time in their last seven games.
