In his first start in nearly two weeks, Chris Heston didn't make it out of the fourth inning as the Giants fell to the Cardinals on Sunday.
While rehabbing his injuries in Arizona, Giants starter Tim Lincecum reportedly suffered a setback, hurting his chances of a return this season.
After missing Saturday's game with a sore left elbow, Buster Posey is back in the lineup Sunday for the finale against the Cardinals.
