San Francisco, CA.--
The Giants absorbed the type of defeat Wednesday night that normally would have knocked the collective wind out of them. Instead, their 3-2, 10-inning loss to the Miami Marlins left the Giants holding their breath.

The Giants weren't brooding about Giancarlo Stanton's homer in the 10th that snapped a 2-2 tie. Until further notice, they must worry about third baseman Pablo Sandoval, who sustained a left-hand injury and was removed from the game after grounding out in the sixth inning. "He took a swing, had quite a bit of pain and had to come out," manager Bruce Bochy said.
