SAN FRANCISCO — For the first time since 1993, the Giants entered the All-Star break with the best record in baseball. They expect to get even stronger soon after the four-day break this week.


SAN FRANCISCO -- Giants manager Bruce Bochy knew he would be giving a stream of injury updates after the day off. He did not expect to be giving an update on Kelby Tomlinson.


SAN FRANCISCO -- The Giants didn't take batting practice on the field today, but there was a Giant out there an hour before first pitch.


PHOENIX -- Part of the reason the Giants kept Angel Pagan for nearly two weeks while he recovered from a hamstring strain was that they didn't really have many options on the 40-man roster.
