Michael Conforto, San Francisco’s hottest hitter, was excluded from the starting lineup. Conforto has three home runs, 10 RBIs and a 1.117 OPS in 10 games this season. “He’s fine. But he’s been in some pain since his last at-bat in yesterday’s game. He’ll probably be available tomorrow,” Conforto explained.
