Casilla remains in Giants' closing mix
SAN FRANCISCO -- Jeremy Affeldt notched his second of the save of the season when he closed Tuesday's 4-1 win against the Mets, but manager Bruce Bochy said he remains confident in closer Santiago Casilla, who picked up the loss in Monday' 8-7 loss against the Mets when he gave up a home run to Scott Hairston in the 10th inning.

"I really thought [Casilla] needed a day [off] last night," Bochy said. "Jeremy did a great job and we're fortunate to have a lot of guys who can do it."

After a promising start after taking over for the injured Brian Wilson in the closer's role, Casilla has struggled with a 6.89 ERA since June 1. The Giants had looked to acquire another bullpen arm before Tuesday's Trade Deadline, but no moves materialized.

"I feel good about our situation," Bochy said.
