San Francisco Giants Notes, Quotes 2009-09-07

San Francisco Giants Notes, Quotes 2009-09-07--INF Juan Uribe batted cleanup for the first time in 2009. Partly because the Giants had no one else, and partly because he has been muscling up lately. C Bengie Molina was out of the lineup, so Uribe was the No. 4 guy after hitting .288 with six homers in his previous 19 games.

--2B Freddy Sanchez had been a possibility to play Sunday, but the Giants now are waiting for Monday to pencil him into the lineup. When Sanchez returns, it's possible he'll play second, INF Juan Uribe would move to third and 3B Pablo Sandoval would move to first.

BY THE NUMBERS: 4-for-42 -- The Giants' hitters with runners in scoring position during a key six-game trip to Philadelphia and Milwaukee, which they finished 3-3, all three losses coming by one run.

QUOTE TO NOTE: "We're going to lose some games. It's not the end of our season if we do lose a game. It's about being mentally consistent and doing what you're capable of doing to help win ballgames. If you start pressing because of the pressure of the playoff race, you get out of your element," -- veteran Aaron Rowand, explaining what he'd tell younger players on the team who have never experienced meaningful games in September.
