And an 11-5 record for the month! Jake Peavy and the Giants looked like clowns in the opening frames then seemed to find their groove and that kept things close and eventually they prevailed with a four-run rally in the 8th inning. That's eight straight wins for the second time this season! Here's a tidbit from Baggs:
It is the best 35-game stretch in the franchise’s San Francisco era.(Emphasis mine.) Wow. Who knew? That's crazy! 27-8 is a .771 win percentage. I thought there would have been an .800 streak (28 wins) in there at some point, even over 35 games, but apparently not. Regardless, that's a hell of a thing. Way to go, Giants!
