- Pablo Sandoval fielding (awesome pick-and-throw on the Matt Kemp DP in the 6th)
- Pablo Sandoval hitting (400-foot HR and two ropes off Chad Billingsley)
- Brandon Crawford instead of
Wally PippMiguel Tejada at shortstop
- Brandon Crawford getting an RBI hit
- Nate Schierholtz with two hits for the second straight game--he's 23-62 (.371) in July
- Cody Ross breaking it open with a big hit
- Ryan Vogelsong pitching
- Ryan Vogeslong getting a hit
- Ramon Ramirez striking out Matt Kemp (and finishing the game)
Ramon Ramirez is only Guillermo Mota away from being a mop-up man yet he got the last five outs on 17 pitches (13 strikes). That's some serious bullpen depth. Ol' Boch finally had to make a move with Tejada. Maybe now we will get to see Crawford every day. His glove is way too valuable--he has to be out there.
The Dodgers were shut out for the 10th time and are 13-1/2 games behind. The Giants go for their 30th win at home tonight behind Madison Bumgarner (against rookie Rubby De La Rosa). Tim Lincecum gets the call against Clayton Kershaw Wednesday afternoon.
