Peguero went just 1-for-6 in the just completed three-game series against the Dodgers, which quite possibly would have had him atop Bochy's list of possible guys to demote in order to activate Mijares. But Peguero got one more chance Monday night, albeit against Phillies ace Cliff Lee, and he hit the ball hard three times, once for a hit.</p> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-wire-copyright"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p><a href="http://thomsonreuters.com" class="button wire reuters"></a></p> <p><span>Copyright Thomson Reuters, 2013.</span></p> </div> </div> </div> <p><a href="http://www.globalpost.com/dispatch/news/thomson-reuters/130508/san-francisco-giants-playerwatch" target="_blank">read more</a></p> Baseball Madison Bumgarner Tim Lincecum Thomson Reuters Thu, 09 May 2013 02:48:55 +0000 Thomson Reuters 5834046 at http://www.globalpost.com San Francisco Giants - TeamReport http://www.globalpost.com/dispatch/news/thomson-reuters/130509/san-francisco-giants-teamreport <div class="field field-type-text field-field-byline1"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Thomson Reuters </div> </div> </div> <!--paging_filter--><p>MLB Team Report - San Francisco Giants - INSIDE PITCH</p> <p>The Giants swept the Dodgers over the weekend, and that's par for the course.</p> <p>The sweep came on the heels of another sweep, that one in Arizona, also three games.</p> <p>On April 19-21, the Giants swept the Padres in a three-game series.</p> <p>As they swept the Rockies on April 8-10.</p> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-wire-copyright"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p><a href="http://thomsonreuters.com" class="button wire reuters"></a></p> <p><span>Copyright Thomson Reuters, 2013.</span></p> </div> </div> </div> <p><a href="http://www.globalpost.com/dispatch/news/thomson-reuters/130509/san-francisco-giants-teamreport" target="_blank">read more</a></p> Baseball San Francisco Giants Tim Lincecum Thomson Reuters Thu, 09 May 2013 05:48:03 +0000 Thomson Reuters 5834230 at http://www.globalpost.com Preview: Phillies at Giants http://www.globalpost.com/dispatch/news/thomson-reuters/130509/preview-phillies-at-giants <div class="field field-type-text field-field-byline1"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Thomson Reuters </div> </div> </div> <!--paging_filter--><p>While the Philadelphia Phillies wait for news on injured ace Roy Halladay, they will look to win their second straight Tuesday against the host San Francisco Giants.

Scutaro raised his batting average to an eye-catching .301, which is easily the best among the National League's regular second basemen.
