Wilson, Sandoval fine after brief injury scares
SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. -- While allowing his first run of the spring in the Giants' 12-8 exhibition loss to the Milwaukee Brewers, right-hander Brian Wilson received a longer-lasting reminder of Monday's game when a sharply hit ball by Jeremy Reed struck him in the rear end.

Wilson quickly recovered the ball and threw out Reed to end the sixth inning. Though Wilson was initially peeved upon leaving the game, he was his entertaining self later.

"It didn't hit any vital organs," Wilson said of Reed's smash.

Andres Torres hit right-handed for the first time in a game and collected a third-inning triple in three at-bats. The switch-hitting Torres had been restricted by a pulled muscle in his left side.

"He took some nice swings," Giants manager Bruce Bochy said of Torres. "His first at-bat, he was feeling for it a little bit. The second at-bat, he let it go."

Third baseman Pablo Sandoval was briefly shaken up in the the fourth inning when Milwaukee's Chris Dickerson ran into him while trying to advance from second base. Sandoval was in the process of fielding Zelous Wheeler's ground ball. Sandoval was briefly flattened but merely had the wind knocked out of him. Results of X-rays taken on Dickerson were pending.
