SAN DIEGO -- Common sense dictates that the Giants won't roar back into postseason contention during the next three weeks, though their schedule during this stretch would represent a major opportunity to excel in most years.

Having endured Sunday's 7-1 loss to the Padres, the Giants can look forward to enjoying home-field advantage -- and lots of it.

They'll begin a 10-game homestand, their longest of the season, when they confront the reigning American League champion Indians in the opener of a three-game series on Monday.

The calendar will remain lopsided in the Giants' favor through Aug.
