Jean Machi said he lost his pinkie fingernail playing catch Monday but remains able to pitch.
Unfortunately for Machi, the injury happened after he surrendered a game-tying homer to Oscar Taveras in Sunday's game so he can't use that as an excuse. As far as pitchers' fingernails go, the pinkie is among the least important, so that's the good news for Machi. He has the finger bandaged, and he should be available in Tuesday's Game 3.

Jean Machi got five outs for his second save of the year in the Giants' 6-2 win Friday.

Unfortunately, Machi's win pace has slowed down, a trend that figures to continue as he enters more games with leads due to Santiago Casilla's absence. He's been remarkably valueable with his five wins, two saves and 0.37 ERA so far, but as much as we like him, he's not going to keep up this pace.

Jean Machi earned his fifth win in relief after pitching two scoreless innings as the Giants beat the Pirates 11-10 in 13 innings on Monday.

It was the first time since 2004 that the Pirates had scored 10 runs and lost. Machi not only pitched well, as usual, but he helped his own cause with a terrific bunt in the top of the 13th. He busted it down the line, too, which may have caused Jared Hughes' errant throw that allowed Hunter Pence to score from second. In truth, the bunt was good enough that Machi could have been awarded a hit. However, it was ruled an error instead. Worse, when Machi took second moments later, it was ruled defensive indifference instead of steal. Oh well, at least Machi has his five wins. No one in either league has more.
