Chadwick Tromp cranked a solo home run and added a single in Wednesday's loss to the Rangers. Receiving the start at catcher with Buster Posey getting a day off, Tromp hit the second of back-to-back home runs in the top of the fifth inning (Jason Vosler had the other) to get the scoring started in this one. He also added a single, as he was the only Giant to reach base twice in 11 innings.
