SAN FRANCISCO – The Giants didn’t expect Marco Scutaro to handle the quick recovery needed to play day games after night games.
Programming note: Tonight’s Giants game is on NBC Bay Area but tune in to an hour-long SportsNet Central at 6:00 to get you ready for Game 1 of the Bay Bridge Series.
SAN DIEGO –- The Giants clubhouse doors swung shut for a players-only meeting, and if this is where they turn around their season, it will go down as the Independence Day Intervention.
