Worth noting

Special to MLB.com

• Giants Triple-A outfielder Darren Ford left Thursday night's contest in an ambulance after running into a wall in foul territory while tracking down a fly ball. He suffered a concussion and multiple abrasions and was slated to travel back to Fresno with the team after being released from the hospital late Thursday. Before his injury, the 28-year-old Ford was batting .350 (7-for-20) in eight contests for the Grizzlies.

• Bochy learned Thursday that he had a hand in Major League history Wednesday night, as it marked the first contest to feature 10 Venezuelans on the field in the same game. Seven played for San Francisco and three appeared for the D-backs, something Bochy seemed to appreciate as a former Winter League player in Venezuela.

"That's a lot in one Major League game," Bochy said. "Tip your cap to the country and the baseball players that are coming out of Venezuela. Pretty amazing."

• Bochy said injured second baseman Marco Scutaro (back) is still undergoing "small workouts" as he tries to get back into playing shape and return from the 15-day disabled list. Scutaro played in just one Spring Training game due to the injury but is eligible to be reinstated.
