Mike Leake didn't lead the Giants to victory Sunday, but his new teammates were impressed that he went right after the Rangers and worked quickly.
Mike Leake left Sunday's game in Texas trailing 2-0, and the Giants tried to get him off the hook, but their ninth-inning rally came up short.
After gutting it out the last two nights, Joe Panik's stiff back has him on the bench Sunday and he will be evaluated in Atlanta this week.
