PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Adam Duvall hit a two-run homer to spoil Cliff Lee's return from the disabled list and the San Francisco Giants beat the Philadelphia Phillies 7-4 on Monday night.

Hunter Pence had three hits and two RBIs, Buster Posey drove in two runs and the Giants remained tied with the Los Angeles Dodgers for first place in the NL West.

Giants starter Ryan Vogelsong gave up four runs — three earned — and 11 hits in three-plus innings. But San Francisco's bullpen combined for six scoreless innings.

George Kontos (2-0) gave up one hit and struck out three in two innings in relief to earn the win. Santiago Casilla pitched the ninth for his sixth save in nine tries.

Making his first start since May 18 because of an elbow injury, Lee (4-5) allowed six runs and 12 hits in 5 2-3 innings in this one.
