The San Francisco Giants split their four-game series with the Miami Marlins by winning 4-1 on Sunday and finished the homestand with a 4-3 record.
Ryan Vogelsong pitched great for the fifth straight start and has gone at least six innings in those outings as he improved his record to 2-2 on the year. The Giants are 5-4 in his starts.
Pablo Sandoval homered for the third time this season and first in his last 108 at-bats yesterday. The Panda has been on a tear the past eight games, batting .406 with 13 hits and five RBI's, while producing a nine-game hitting streak.
The Giants have had a runner reach base in the first inning the last 22 games and will look to extend the streak on Tuesday. The orange and black get a well deserved day-off today after playing 17 straight days in a row.
Giants manager Bruce Bochy said Angel Pagan has a sprained AC joint in his left shoulder and is listed as day to day. Pagan hopes to play in the series opener tomorrow night in Colorado against the Rockies.
Bochy also mentioned that Marco Scutaro traveled to Miami to undergo a non-surgical procedure for his back injury and the procedure is a "blood spinning thing" which is different to the platelet-rich injections athletes often receive to speed up the healing process in injured areas.
Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle is reporting the Oakland A's could lose their Triple-A affiliate, the Sacramento River Cats to the Giants after the season. The A's agreement with Sacramento expires after the season just does the Giants' deal with their Triple-A affiliate, the Fresno Grizzlies expires as well after the season.
Hunter Pence will enter Tuesday's game having played in every game this season and will extend his consecutive games played streak to 217, the longest-active streak in baseball.
