1B Brandon Belt is hitting .415 this month, the third highest batting average in the National League this August. He also has four doubles, two triples, five homers and 19 RBIs this month. Belt cooled off Sunday, going 0-for-5 for his second straight hitless game.
2B Marco Scutaro, who left Saturday's game due to a tight lower back, did not start Sunday. Manager Bruce Bochy said this is an injury Scutaro has been dealing with for a while.
