After the Giants killed it at the All Star game they continued their dominance and began the second half of the season winning 7 of their first 9 games. They began by sweeping the Houston Astros at home, if the Astros didn’t have to play us ever again I think they’d be relieved, and then the Giants went on the road to face the Braves and the Phillies where they took 2 out of 3 games from each team.

The Giants have been on a roll as of late and wanted to steal the last game from the struggling San Diego Padres. And who better to give the Giants that chance other than their own Matt Cain? No one.

Posey, Pagan, and Blanco all went deep in the game and the Giants ended up taking the win 8-3 and also the series in San Diego. Continue reading
The San Fracisco Giants escape a near sweep of the Reds with a 9th inning 3 run homreun by Pagan to put the Giants ahead for good.

See you at the park!
