After the most incredible play in recent memory, Angel Pagan will miss his second straight game with a hamstring injury. The center fielder was shaken up after hitting a walk-off two-run inside-the-park home run in Saturday’s game against Colorado. I don’t think the “-” button on my laptop will ever be the same.
Pagan is having a solid season, starting 45 of the Giants 50 games and posting a .314 OBP. Gregor Blanco starts in his place for the second straight game, with Andres Torres doing the same in left.
With the game in Oakland, Buster Posey gets the start at DH on a rare Monday afternoon game. This is Posey’s fifth career game starting at designated hitter, meaning Guillermo Quiroz gets the start behind the plate. In Posey’s 14 career at-bats at DH, he has four hits including a double. This small of a sample is insignificant, but led me to look at how effective Posey is at the plate when at different places on the field (or not at all, as DH).
In 1,024 at-bats at catcher: .306/....

MRI on Pagan showed bursitis, Bochy said. He’ll do light activities. Might be available to pinch hit.

Straight hustlin’. Needless to say, that’s Pagan’s first career inside-the-park walk-off. He has three career inside-the-parkers and two career walk-off home runs.

Video: Pagan sends 41,000 fans home happy
Boy, that inside-the-park walk-off by Angel Pagan on Saturday sure was fun, wasn’t it? Well, maybe some us maybe had a little too much fun with it.
Like, say, Tim Lincecum, who reportedly tweaked his ankle jumping up and down in the mob of players that swarmed Pagan after he crossed home plate.
Lincecum is still OK to make his start as scheduled on Wednesday. He threw a bullpen...
When Ryan Vogelsong was injured a week ago, Giants fans became on edge like they hadn’t in quite some time. The starting rotation hadn’t had a long-term injury since Barry Zito in 2011, but Zito wasn’t pitching well enough for anyone to be concerned. And his replacement was Vogelsong, who lit up the National League and collected an All-Star Game appearance and a few Cy Young...
