Sizzling Giants complete sweep of Tampa Bay, suffer another injury

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- It almost came to pass 23 years ago. The Giants nearly moved here to Florida's Gulf Coast.

Ownage took a different form over an interleague weekend at Tropicana Field. Jake Peavy overcame his aches to match a season high with eight strikeouts, Joe Panik contributed the tiebreaking hit for the second consecutive day and the Giants completed a three-game sweep of the Tampa Bay Rays with a 5-1 victory Sunday.Gregor Blanco led off the eighth inning with a single, advanced on Denard Span's sacrifice and scored without a play when Panik hit a crisp single to right field.
