SAN FRANCISCO: SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - From every slot in a talented, experienced rotation to the back end of the bullpen and in between, to the starting fielders and the role players on the bench, it's hard to find a member of the San Francisco Giants pleased with his 2013 season.
A year after winning the World Series, the Giants finished 10 games under .500, third in the NL West and they missed the playoffs.
''We don't even have to have the conversation, a lot of the guys know it,'' right-hander Matt Cain said. ''We didn't pitch the way that we wanted to.''
As the Giants begin a new year, they will try to keep up with the big-spending Los Angeles Dodgers and regain the grip they had on the NL West when the club won World Series championships in 2010 and `12 - even if everybody expects the Dodgers to be the team to beat.
''You do try to reflect back and try to learn from what happened last year and how you can get better,'' manager Bruce Bochy said. ''You move forward, that's what we had to do. There are some things we'll talk about in the spring, mistakes that we made last year. Also, hopefully guys come in with an attitude, that they weren't happy with what happened the year before and want to get back on track.''
Buster Posey certainly doesn't want to spend too much time thinking about last season.
''That's probably how everybody feels. There's a bad taste in a lot of guys' mouths,'' Posey said. ''We want to come out and focus on winning ballgames.''
CHICAGO CUBS: CHICAGO (AP) - Wrigley Field is decked out for the party of a century.
As for the Chicago Cubs?
It looks like there won't be much to celebrate this season other than their ballpark's 100th anniversary. As Wrigley hits a milestone, the Cubs remain in a rebuilding mode, hoping to avoid their fifth straight losing season.
They have a new manager in Rick Renteria. Their outlook looks about the same, though.
It's all about the future, the prized prospects in the system, no matter how painful that might be to the players in uniform at the major league level. More lumps appear to be in store for the Cubs as they enter their third year with Theo Epstein as president of baseball operations.
''The objective is to win as many games as possible, be the last man standing and bring a championship to the city of Chicago,'' pitcher Edwin Jackson said. ''The motivation is still the same. The message is still the same. We want to go out and win. We don't want to go out and be a pushover.''

*Giants-Cubs Preview* =====================


San Francisco (65-58) at Chicago (53-70), 8:05 p.m. EDT

The San Francisco Giants have won three of four to gain some ground in the NL West.

There's still plenty of work ahead to recover from a poor two months, but Wrigley Field could provide a strong opportunity to continue chipping away as they open a six-game road trip Tuesday night against the Chicago Cubs.

The Giants (65-58) closed a three-game series against Philadelphia with back-to-back wins, including a 5-2 victory Sunday that got them within 3 1/2 games of the first-place Los Angeles Dodgers after entering the weekend 5 1/2 out.

Michael Morse went 3 for 3 in each win and is batting .500 over his last nine in what's been a bit of an up-and-down season for the first-year left fielder.

"I'm just getting hits now. I'm not trying to do too much, just get a pitch to hit," Morse said. "I'm not seeing the ball any better, I'm being more patient."

Joe Panik also had a strong series with three multihit efforts, giving the rookie second baseman a five-game hitting streak.

San Francisco has won five of six at Wrigley and took two of three against the Cubs (54-70) at home from May 26-28, including 20 straight scoreless innings pitched to close out the series.

Ryan Vogelsong didn't have a hand in that streak, but he'll be charged with continuing it. He's not letting a 20-36 stretch preceding the club's last four define the season.

"If we keep playing hard ... things are going to be all right," Vogelsong told MLB's official website. "We have to keep showing resilience."

Vogelsong (7-8, 3.71 ERA) has put together what has likely been his strongest three-start stretch of the season to begin the month. The right-hander is 2-0 with a 1.60 ERA and .160 opponents' batting average in August. In Tuesday's 3-2 loss to the White Sox, Vogelsong allowed two runs and three hits in seven innings.

His last seven starts at home have ended in San Francisco losses, while three straight road outings have resulted in wins.

The Cubs have traditionally given him quite a hard time, especially at Wrigley. The 37-year-old is 3-3 with a 6.91 ERA and .336 OBA in six starts.

Anthony Rizzo has a home run and two strikeouts in three at-bats against Vogelsong, but he's a career .182 hitter with 32 strikeouts in 77 at-bats against the Giants.

The Cubs are also seeking a three-game winning streak after salvaging a split in a four-game series with the New York Mets. Monday's 4-1 win featured home runs from Rizzo and Javier Baez, his fifth in 14 games since joining the big league club.

The victory also completed a solid series on the mound as Chicago held the Mets to 16 hits in 34 innings for a .140 average. It's the first time since 1983 that the club has held its opponents to four hits or fewer in four straight games. Dating to 1914, the franchise has never done it in five straight.

Tsuyoshi Wada (2-1, 3.15) wasn't a part of it but has certainly shown enough quality to continue it. The rookie's last four starts have produced a 2-0 record and 2.49 ERA with one of those decisions coming in Wednesday's 4-2 win over Milwaukee. The left-hander held the Brewers to two runs and five hits in 6 2-3 innings.

"He seems to have some deception," manager Rick Renteria told MLB's official website. "His fastball plays 88, 89 (mph) on the board, but to the hitter, he's throwing balls that are getting by very good hitters. The deception factor he has is very important."
