The Giants won't be going after a big bat like they did last year with Carlos Beltran. But Insider Andrew Baggarly has a few interesting scenarios they could pursue at the trade deadline.
The widening gap between the Giants' road and home ERA continues to be a problem as the Nationals tag Madison Bumgarner for a 9-4 win.
Madison Bumgarner gave up three of Washington's four home runs and allowed seven runs in five innings as the Giants lost to the first-place Nationals for a second straight game.
After a day off Monday, Brandon Belt returns to the Giants' lineup for a start at first base. And Emmanuel Burriss, a native of Washington D.C., is in the starting lineup with Ryan Theriot resting.
After a long rain delay, it's rare to find an entire team sticking together until the final out. As Angel Pagan explained, it's important to the 2012 Giants.
Tim Lincecum had nothing left in his tank in the fourth inning. But even after a career-high eight runs allowed, he's not losing heart.
Tim Lincecum allowed a career-high eight runs, seven earned, on nine hits in 3.1 innings in Washington, where the Giants endured a long rain delay in an eventual 9-3 loss to the Nationals.

For the first time since he was a rookie in 2007, Giants starter Tim Lincecum will not represent the National League in the All-Star Game. He is not relieved to take a break from baseball.
Bruce picked up the ball off a bounce and let his chest thump the wall, knowing the gravity of his sin. Long after the Giants had finished celebrating and were already off the field, Bruce was still walking, ever so slowly, back to the losing side.
Being left off the All-Star roster solidified to Ryan Vogelsong that people don't take him seriously. People should probably take notice, as his 2.26 ERA is tied for the fourth lowest in the National League.
