Notes

The Giants 6-game winning streak came to an end. ... The Dragons snap a three game losing streak against the Giants. ... Gonzalez (YOM) is now 0-2 in 2 starts against the Dragons this season.  This was also Gonzalez's shortest outing since joining the Giants in 2009. ... Kamei (YOM) apparently injured his elbow while sliding into home plate in the 5th inning.  He was later diagnosed with a bruise in his left elbow. He is listed as day-to-day. ... There was s scoreboard malfunction that began partway through the 7th inning -- it stopped displaying ball and strikes.
