A lot of them bundled up on a 57-degree night and came through the turnstiles at AT&T Park for a game that meant nothing.

At least two of the three games will be meaningful. The Rockies won their sixth in a row Wednesday night, ensuring the Dodgers cannot clinch the … [Read more...] about Giants fall to Padres ahead of big series against Dodgers
