Worth noting

• The Giants entered Monday with the fewest errors in the Major Leagues -- 16 -- since the All-Star break. They ranked among the most error-prone clubs during the season's first half. "I think what we saw early was very uncharacteristic of the personnel we have. I don't think there's any explanation other than that," said bench coach Ron Wotus, whose duties include tutoring and positioning infielders.

• The Giants got snarled in Southern California traffic during their bus ride Sunday afternoon from San Diego to Los Angeles. A trip that should have taken approximately 2 1/2 hours lasted about four hours. "I fell asleep, woke up and thought we were getting close," manager Bruce Bochy said. "But were in Oceanside [a San Diego suburb]."

• Sunday's game against the Atlanta Braves at AT&T Park has been moved from 1:05 p.m. to 5 p.m. PT to accommodate ESPN's telecast.
