• The Giants entered Saturday 15-22 against left-handed starters and had gone 3-12 in their last 15 games against lefties.

• San Francisco's starters had thrown 12 quality starts in the last 14 games. During the stretch, their 2.12 ERA was third-lowest in the Majors.

• Bochy on Chris Davis' monstrous solo homer to right-center in the eighth inning Saturday: "That's as quick as I've seen a ball leave the ballpark in that area. That's one of the loudest balls off the bat I've heard."

Marco Scutaro's RBI on Saturday was his first since the All-Star break.

• With the popular music festival Outside Lands at Golden Gate Park happening simultaneously during the Giants' three-game series, Barry Zito was aiming to catch one band's set Saturday evening: Phoenix.
