Emmanuel Burriss cleared waivers and will be headed to Triple-A Fresno, Bochy said before Thursday's game. Burriss was designated for assignment on July 28 after the Giants acquired Marco Scutaro.
"It's good for us because we can keep him," Bochy said. "He's a player that we know, he's spent time with us. He can help us if we need him to."
Hunter Pence batted in the cleanup spot with Buster Posey getting a day off on Thursday. Heading into the game, Pence has batted .254 in 73 career games at that spot, with 12 home runs and 41 RBIs.
