For the San Francisco Giants, the month of May used to belong to Mays. Now it belongs to Melky. Melky Cabrera had three more hits Tuesday in the Giants' 3-1 win over the Diamondbacks, giving him 50 for the month, the most ever by a San Francisco player. Willie Mays had 49 in May 1958. The San Francisco record for any month belongs to Randy Winn, who had 51 hits in September 2005. "Any time you're in a category with Willie Mays, there's something to be said about that," pitcher Ryan Vogelsong said. "I'd like to see him get a couple more (Wednesday) and see him up there by himself." Don't put it past Cabrera, the majors' leader in hits (77) and multiple-hit games (25). When it comes to goals, he shoots for the moon. Here's what he said when the subject turned to Mays (Cabrera was told before the game by a coach that he was closing in on the record): "I wasn't aware of it. I'm very happy I was able to equal a reco...

Postgame Wrap: Melky Mays

The Giants offense was a lumbering, sputtering, defeated group of gents today. For seven innings anyway. But when it counted, the heart of the order stepped up their game and gave us all kinds of seeing-eyeness and no-swing-itis, and it pretty much worked out. Scoring three runs behind a grit-tastic no-decision from Ryan Vogelsong is probably frustrating for Ryan, but we’ll take...

Postgame Wrap: Good as Goldschlager

Fee-fi-fo-fum! I smell the blood of a Diamondback. Be he live, or be he dead,: I'll grind his bones to make my bread. I really wonder what’s going through Paul Goldschmidt’s mind right now.
