team defense.  The Packers have the day
off today.  Saturday’s game kicks off at

Pablo Sandoval homered and
drove in three as the Giants beat the Brewer 7-4 last night at Miller Park  Yovani Gallardo gave up 9 hits and 4 runs in
just four innings of work.  Carlos Gomez
and Khris Davis both homered in the loss. The series wraps up today as Wily
Peralta takes on Jake Peavy.   Coverage
