Chris Stratton employed a different strategy to achieve a similar result Monday night at AT&T Park, where he delivered six innings to propel the Giants to a 2-0 victory over the Brewers, San Francisco's first home shutout of the season.
The opportunity to embrace creativity particularly excites the Giants as they consider the fun that awaits them during the inaugural Players Weekend, which is scheduled for Aug. 25-27. Created jointly by Major League Baseball and the Players Association, the event encourages players to don uniforms that feature alternate designs, instead of their everyday garb.
Possibly headed for offseason surgery after a strained right pronator twice forced him onto the disabled list, Mark Melancon contributed a scoreless eighth inning to the Giants' 2-0 victory Monday night over the Brewers. Melancon thus appeared in back-to-back games for the first time since his second DL stint ended Aug. 12.
Pedro Florimon delivered the biggest hit of the Phillies' three-run seventh Sunday, squeaking a two-run single to right field off Giants reliever Hunter Strickland, giving the Phillies back-to-back wins to cap their West Coast road trip. Starter Ben Lively delivered six innings of two-run ball while Jorge Alfaro brought home the game-tying run to help the Phillies knock off the Giants, 5-2.
Much as been made about Madison Bumgarner's mound presence, velocity and command. But he's shown recently he is regaining his form with a bat, too. His single Sunday, which gave the Giants the lead in an eventual 5-2 loss to the Phillies, gave him back-to-back games with an RBI.

Giants second baseman Joe Panik said Sunday he's experienced headaches -- but not vision issues -- during his current stint on the seven-day concussion disabled list.
Ty Kelly put the punctuation mark on the Phillies' breakout night at the plate Saturday, lifting a grand slam in the sixth -- part of a seven-run inning -- to help Philadelphia break a six-game losing streak in a 12-9 win over the Giants.
Giants center fielder Denard Span relied on a fortunate carom and his determined baserunning to record his first career inside-the-park home run Saturday night against the Philadelphia Phillies.
The Giants wasted no time in becoming the latest National League West team to see Phillies starter Zach Eflin well, notching three runs in the first and adding three more over the second and third innings in San Francisco's 10-2 win over Philadelphia on Friday.
The AT&T Park audience began cheering Matt Moore before he left the pitcher's mound Friday night. Moore earned the applause by yielding two hits in 7 1/3 innings to guide San Francisco to a 10-2 triumph over the Philadelphia Phillies.
Giants head athletic trainer Dave Groeschner acknowledged Friday that Mark Melancon might require offseason surgery to fix his arm fully. Nobody divulged much about the possible procedure, though Melancon indicated that, after years of stoicism, he needs to heal.
Bonds shows old skills with basket catch
The Giants' outfield of Jarrett Parker, Denard Span and Hunter Pence combined to generate most of the club's offense in Thursday night's 5-4 victory over the Phillies that opened a four-game series.
Multiple times in recent months, Giants manager Bruce Bochy has said he'd like to get Kelby Tomlinson more playing time. That window of opportunity is now open with second baseman Joe Panik on the seven-day concussion disabled list. So far, Tomlinson has taken hold of his newfound playing time.
Pence nearly passes Span on basepaths
First baseman Brandon Belt, who was diagnosed with a concussion earlier this month, will begin cardio activity Friday, manager Bruce Bochy said before the Giants opened a four-game set Thursday against the Phillies.
Giants infielder Christian Arroyo, the club's top Minor League prospect, will be sidelined for the remainder of the regular season with a broken left hand, general manager Bobby Evans said Thursday.

The Giants kept Giancarlo Stanton in the ballpark on Wednesday afternoon, but they weren't able to contain Tomas Telis, who drove in three runs and scored another in the Marlins' 8-1 victory over the Giants at Marlins Park.
Add Madison Bumgarner to the list of pitchers to allow a home run to Giancarlo Stanton during his remarkable home run stretch. But after Stanton extended his long-ball streak to six straight games, it was Bumgarner's run-scoring single and Carlos Moncrief's pinch-hit, RBI base hit that helped rally the Giants to a 9-4 victory over Miami on Tuesday at Marlins Park.
Ryder Jones' learning curve may not be as steep as it first looked earlier this season if his performance in Tuesday's 9-4 win over the Marlins is any indication.
Joe Panik was placed on the 7-day concussion DL two days after he was hit in the head during a home-plate collision.
Giants right fielder Hunter Pence collected two hits and an RBI in an 8-3 loss to the Marlins on Monday. For the right fielder, the hits just keep coming in a resurgent August that he's putting together.
Giancarlo Stanton connected on a two-run home run in the first inning and had three RBIs as the Marlins cruised to an 8-3 win over the Giants on Monday night at Marlins Park.
Howie Kendrick launched a walk-off grand slam in the 11th inning to lead the Nationals to a 6-2 victory in the nightcap of Sunday's doubleheader against the Giants. It was Kendrick's first career grand slam and it came against Giants left-hander Albert Suarez to end a marathon 24 hours for both teams, which included a game late Saturday night that ended Sunday morning, followed by a pair of games on Sunday.
Chris Stratton spun 6 2/3 scoreless innings with 10 strikeouts to help the Giants beat the Nationals, 4-2, in Game 1 of Sunday's split doubleheader. It was the first double-digit strikeout performance of Stratton's Major League career.
The Nats used their newest winning formula -- six quality innings from their starter followed by an inning each from a new bullpen trio -- to seal a 3-1 victory over the Giants early Sunday morning. But the victory was bittersweet for Washington after slugger Bryce Harper left the game in the first inning with an apparent left leg injury.
