SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. (AP) — Madison Bumgarner threw two scoreless innings in his first outing since the second game of the World Series, postseason hero Marco Scutaro had two hits and drove in a run and the San Francisco Giants played the Chicago White Sox to a 9-9 tie Monday.

Paul Konerko had two hits for the White Sox, who played to a tie for the second straight day. Hector Santiago allowed three runs on five hits in his two innings.

Bumgarner walked one, struck out one and allowed two hits in an outing he deemed the first step to continued adjustments.

Santiago, who was impressive during four starts in September and October, said he’s not taking anything for granted.

Joaquin Arias, Brett Pill and Cole Gillespie each drove in two runs as the Giants took a 9-0 lead after three innings.

The White Sox got two back in the sixth and tied the game with a 7-run eighth, highlighted by Seth Loman’s three-run home run.
