Melky, Angel earn Bochy's compliments
MILWAUKEE -- Manager Bruce Bochy has made up his mind about outfielders Melky Cabrera and Angel Pagan, and his thoughts about the newcomers are only positive.

"You hear the term 'gamer.' They want to play," Bochy said of the pair. "That's what you love about our two new guys. They want to be out there. They love playing, and it shows in how they play."

Indeed, Cabrera and Pagan were among the Giants who participated in optional batting practice on Wednesday morning before starting against the Brewers. Later, Pagan launched San Francisco's bid to rally from an eight-run deficit by hustling out an infield single in the third inning, diving headfirst into first base to get the "safe" call.

Later in that inning, Cabrera reached safely on a fielder's-choice grounder, and he added an RBI double in the fourth to extend his hitting streak to seven games.

It was a key moment for the Giants, but Cabrera, who began the afternoon leading the Majors in hits, took it in stride.

"He plays the game and acts like he's been there before," Bochy said.
