The Giants scored five times
in the 7th to blank the Brewers 5-0 on Wednesday afternoon in their

Then Mets GM Sandy Alderson said the trade will not happen.


One trade that did happen is Philadelphia sending pitcher Cole Hamels to Texas in exchange for
six players.  Also the Marlins have
traded pitcher Mat Latos and 1B Michael Morse to the Dodgers for three minor
