Since any milestone worth having is worth working for, it seemed fitting that Santiago Casilla took a longer path than usual to secure his 100th career save in the Giants' 5-4 decision Monday over the San Diego Padres.

(AP Photo/John Amis) As the San Francisco Giants enter a tough August schedule, one that has the team facing nothing but playoff contending clubs over the next 25 games, the offense remains as hot as the temperatures the Giants will be playing in this month. The same can’t be said for the pitching, or more accurately the bullpen, which has struggled for most of the season, as...
