ST PETERSBURG --  As Alex Cobb was pulled from Saturday's game, he left the field with mixed emotions -- mad at himself for allowing two baserunners in the frame, but proud of the standing ovation he received from the 20,495 in attendance.
"I was [upset] at first because I walked Hanley [Ramirez]," Cobb said. "Then the crowd was cheering me on really hard, and that lifted me up a little bit. I was so mad at myself."
That weird mix of emotions returned after the game, as Cobb learned he would be optioned back to Triple-A Durham to make room for Jeff Niemann despite turning in another quality start to power the Rays to a 7-4 victory over the Marlins.

Today is World Sauntering Day.

OAKLAND --   For a brief moment Saturday night, it seemed as if the Giants would overcome a few missed opportunities, some uncharacteristic mistakes and their all-too-characteristic struggles to get runners across the plate and even the Bay Bridge Series.
Instead, left-hander Jonathan Sanchez immediately coughed up a two-run lead the Giants had scratched and clawed to secure, allowing Oakland to put up four runs in the fifth inning and go on to beat San Francisco, 4-2, in the Oakland Coliseum.
