Game Story

Maybe the Giants won't keep up their current home-run pace, but the surge in power isn't a surprise to manager Bruce Bochy. Brandon Belt, Buster Posey and Michael Morse hit home runs, each to lead off an inning, and the streaking San Francisco Giants beat the slumping Atlanta Braves 3-1 on Saturday...
