On Thursday, the San Francisco Giants lost against the Milwaukee Brewers at Miller Park, 3-1.
The only positive outcome that came from losing against Milwaukee was outfielder Angel Pagan returned to the lineup for San Francisco after being on the disabled list. He had two hits in the game and was in a great mood after the game was over, despite the loss.
"I feel great," Pagan told sfgate.com. "I thought my jumps in the outfield were pretty good. My energy was pretty good. I feel happy. I know we lost, but I feel good things are coming."
Even though San Francisco lost, the team has suffered without Pagan playing in the outfield. When Pagan was absent from the lineup, the Giants had a sad record of 19-26.
Pagan is a lead-off batter that gets things started for the team, especially with his impressive .309 batting average.
The organization is going to need him for the rest of the season. They are on the verge of a playoff berth as they continue their road trip on tonight in Kansas City.
San Francisco is now 3.5 games out of first place in the NL West Division, notes MLB.com.
