    Matt Moore and the Giants lost to the Indians on Monday night.

    SAN FRANCISCO — The Giants lost their sellout streak Monday night. That part was new. The part about losing on the field was not.

    Matt Moore made a costly error in the fifth and Jae-gyun Hwang added his own in the sixth as the Giants 5-3 to Josh Tomlin and the Cleveland Indians, the reigning champs of the American League.

    Here are five things to know from non-sellout night at the yard …

    —- Moore cost himself 12 pitches and the lead with a huge mistake in the fifth. With two outs and a runner on second, Bradley Zimmer bounced one to the mound. Moore’s underhand throw to first sailed over Hwang’s head and a run scored as Zimmer took second. A single a batter later tied the score at three.

    —- Hwang made his first big league start at first and he had a crucial error in the sixth. With a runner on second, Brandon Guyer put a sacrifice bunt down the right side. Hwang’s throw to the bag skipped into right and a run scored.

    —- Moore did a nice job regrouping, and technically he was only charged with two earned in seven innings. The 21-out night was just his second since the end of May, and just the third for the Giants over the last 18 games.

    —- Brandon Crawford will need to take at least a couple days off from making fun of Buster Posey’s speed. The catcher scored from first on Crawford’s double in the fourth.

    —- Andrew Miller came on with one out in the eighth and needed just three pitches to get out of the inning. He has a 1.58 ERA and 0.68 WHIP. Video game numbers.
