Giants’ Angel Pagan on a tear since return from DL

Two weeks ago, Angel Pagan stopped by manager Bruce Bochy’s office to lobby for an early return from a hamstring strain. Perhaps Pagan could sense in himself the potential for a memorable stretch. Since coming off the disabled list, he is 21-for-60 (.350) with 15 RBIs, one home run and 33 runs. The injury lingered, and 10 days removed from a two-week inactive stint, he landed on the disabled list. After a three-game rehab assignment with Triple-A Sacramento, Pagan was scheduled back in the lineup June 15 against the Brewers.
