Stomach troubles sideline Pagan
MILWAUKEE -- A case of stomach flu forced Giants center fielder Angel Pagan out of the lineup for Monday night's series opener against the Milwaukee Brewers.

Manager Bruce Bochy said that Pagan didn't arrive at Miller Park until the team took the field for batting practice. At that point, Pagan went to the clubhouse to be examined by doctors, Bochy said.

Bochy pegged Pagan's playing status as day to day but expressed hope that the switch-hitter will feel fit enough to rejoin the lineup Tuesday. Pagan entered Monday with the National League's longest active hitting streak (11 games), having his safely in 31 of his last 32 games. He had started 38 of the Giants' first 41 games, all in center field.

Right fielder Nate Schierholtz replaced Pagan in the lineup, with Gregor Blanco moving from right to center. Eclipsed by Blanco, Schierholtz had started three previous games in May.
