The Comeback Kids

The Giants made it two come-from-behind wins in Houston with a 3-run 7th inning, erasing a 4-0 deficit. It was a lot of little things, but mostly it was a good team playing a bad one, and the good team prevailed. Hunter Pence got the big hit, fisting a ball up the middle to score the go-ahead run. I knew it would take around six runs to fend off the scrappy Astros, and I was happy to see the lads tack on some more. Not much left to say about Joaquin Arias, the man has seized his moment. Ryan Vogelsong got smacked around a bit, but hung tough and got eighteen outs, sparing the 'pen. That guy is a stud! My man WillyMo is back just when the club could use a reliable righty reliever. I say go with Guillermo.

Brandon Belt got four hits. Love it. Giants have won ten of thirteen. No complaints there, either.

Alas, We were away from home tonight but managed to find a TV in Lupes Cantina to catch the last couple of innings against the Astros. Can you spell SWEEP. Ya baby! The Niners and Raiders competed for our attention in the other corners of the establishment (as did the Tequila),but I was glad to see the Giants finish off a lesser caliber team. this time of year,you need to keep doing that if you want to show up in smog city in October and not be concerned with how big a lead you have over the Dodgers. That's my story and I'm sticking to it. Go Giants!
