Pat Burrell gets pinch-hitting opportunity

Pat Burrell returned to action as a pinch-hitter on Wednesday, finishing 0-for-1 in a 3-1 loss to the Padres.

With the Giants down 2-1 in the seventh inning, Burrell pinch-hit with two on and one out. He flied out in what turned out to be a rally-ending double play, as the tying run was tagged out digging for home. Dealing with a sore foot has prevented the veteran from trying to get back on track this season. He has only 18 at-bats since June 30, from which he's compiled only three singles. Burrell is literally limping to the finish line.
