6 4 2 2 0 5

Whew. I was thinking if the Giants lost today, my headline would be "Woe," as in "what a woeful weekend." Or perhaps "Whoa," like "whoa, man, what the hell's happening with our team?" But I came home this afternoon and checked the score and it was "whew, they finally won." How about that Chad Gaudin and his lovely line? That's the headline, man, a quality start. Keep them damn runners off base and them damn runs off the scoreboard! Who knew the 2013 Giants would find it so hard to string together quality starts? Since the 2009 club this franchise has pounded out weeks and months of quality innings and solid pitching performances. It's been a struggle this season, though. What's up with that? There's too much talent there, I can't believe it won't turn around. Big effort by Gaudin the 12th Man to plug the hole and lead the way to victory.

Travel day tomorrow, then they get another chance against the Blue Jays on Tuesday in San Francisco with Tim Lincecum on the mound. Giants only play nine home games in June. Time to improve that road record!
