Petit tosses complete game, Panik goes 5-for-5, Giants gain game on Dodgers

You don’t have to feel good for Yusmeiro Petit. You might be a fan of another team. Like the D-Backs, the team Petit pitched for from 2007-09 that came *this*

Panik’s four hits doesn’t lead team in Giants’ most lopsided win of the season

Little River, CA I’ve decided I’m going to include datelines when I write stuff in towns other than San Francisco. I might stick with it, I might not.  *** Bruce Bochy

Buster Posey hits walk-off HR to cap milestone night for Tim Hudson and Bruce Bochy
