San Francisco Giants - TeamReport

MLB Team Report - San Francisco Giants - INSIDE PITCH This had been a lost season for Hector Sanchez, who was a key figure in the Giants championship season of 2012. A shoulder injury, ineffectiveness at the plate and ample time with Triple-A Fresno made Sanchez a memory for most of 2013, but then Thursday happened. His two-out, two-strike, ninth-inning, three-run homer beat the Nationals 4-3, and suddenly it was 2012 all over again.

1B Brandon Belt reached a career high in homers with his 10th on Saturday night. Belt's previous high was nine in 2011. Belt has hit seven of his 10 long balls on the road. RHP Santiago Casilla (knee surgery to remove a cyst) returned from the DL. He was put on the DL May 21, and his absence left a big hole in the bullpen, which has lacked depth. He had a 1.89 ERA in 21 outings before being shelved.
