• Bochy reiterated his intent to find more playing time for rookie infielder Nick Noonan, who singled for his first Major League hit in Sunday's ninth inning. "I'm going to have to play him," said Bochy, who doesn't want to see Noonan rust on the bench. "He's going to get some starts."
• Bochy said that his Colorado counterpart, first-year skipper Walt Weiss, shouldn't necessarily be hampered by his absence of a professional managing background. Weiss coached Regis Jesuit High School last year and has never managed in the Minor Leagues. Weiss, a former infielder, also played in the Majors for 13 years. "Walt's been around and has tons of experience," Bochy said. "I think this is going to be an easy transition for him."
