Atlanta – In the past three weeks, the Giants played 14 of their 18 games on the road, all against winning teams. Leadoff hitter Angel Pagan played in none. Along the way, they lost Marco Scutaro and Pablo Sandoval to injuries. Their record during the stretch was 7-11. And all of that cost them 1½ games in the standings. The Giants' next giveaway promotion should be T-shirts that say, “God Bless the National League West,” where the top four teams are separated by two games. “The division is beating up on each other,” manager Bruce Bochy said after the Giants lost to the Braves 3-0 Sunday night. “We're lucky nobody has taken the opportunity and pulled away, with the ups and downs that we've had.” The Giants' 4-5 trip ended with a real downer. Tim Lincecum got off to a wild start but held Atlanta to three runs (two earned) in six innings. His worst enemies were his command and left fielder Andres Torres, who had a terrible game, with two misplays that led to two runs.
