San Francisco Giants Notes, Quotes 2009-05-16
--2B Emmannuel Burriss was drilled Friday night by a RHP Tim Lincecum foul ball, which hit Burriss in the back of his head. Burriss was in the on-deck circle at the time and stumbled into the dugout after getting hit. He was examined by a trainer and stayed in the game. Lincecum struck out, and so did Burriss. At least he was OK.

--LHP Jonathan Sanchez hadn't surrendered any earned runs at home, but he gave up four in 5 2/3 innings Thursday. It was evident Sanchez wasn't going to pitch deep into the game after throwing 30 pitches in the first inning.

--RHP Brian Wilson responded to Dodgers 3B Casey Blake, who homered off Wilson in the 12th inning Sunday and after the inning mocked the closer's crossed-arm gesture. Wilson crosses his arms after saves to acknowledge his faith and late father. "I have a pretty good memory," said Wilson when told the Giants and Dodgers don't play again until August. Asked if this could spark the Giants-Dodgers rivalry, Wilson said, "It could be a catalyst if you want to look at it that way. There's always something to fuel the fire. You're always looking for some excuse to get riled up."

Blake responded Tuesday. "Should I have done it? Probably not," said Blake, who wouldn't say he'd apologize.

BY THE NUMBERS: 11.37 -- LHP Randy Johnson's ERA in his first three road starts as a Giant.

QUOTE TO NOTE: "Manny's gone for 50 games, time for the Giants to capitalize." -- LHP Barry Zito on Twitter, commenting on Manny Ramirez's 50-game suspension, announced when the Giants were 6 1/2 games behind the Dodgers in the NL West.
