The San Francisco Giants beat the Kansas City Royals this afternoon, 5-0. You can read the game recap here. A lot going on today, so I’m going to throw it all together here to get you up-to-date on a few extra game notes, and some non-game notes happening today.

First up, Marco Scutaro. I don’t know about you, but I’m not feeling real good about the Scutaro situation right now.

Instant replay games are coming next week. Full expect Bruce Bochy to be throwing out flags, whether he’s allowed to or not.

Speaking of the Bochy family, Brett Bochy had to make dad proud today.

Tim Lincecum had a solid outing today. Has he put his past struggles behind him? He admitted to Alex Pavlovic that “things were coming easier.”

And while we’re talking about pitching, I cannot wait until Derek Law makes it to San Francisco. I’ll be patient, but I’m ready.

Mark Minicozzi had another home run today and keeps insisting on people giving people something to talk about.  He’s got Bochy’s attention.

Hunter Pence also ripped one out of the park today. Best tweet about that home run is below.
