7-2 win vs. COL
He started a bit shaky ( 3 of the first 5 hitters got extra base hits ) but then Johnny Cueto (18-5) settled down and gave the Giants pretty much what he has been doing since day one: quality pitching that gives us a chance to win. And, boy howdy did we need this win. The Cards won with a walk off and NY had the day off, so we are still one up on the Cards and now one down to the Mets.
Seven runs sure is swell. I guess I give the offense player award to Connor Gillaspie but Span, Posey, Pence, Pagan and Crawford all reached base twice so it really was a team effort. Of course, tomorrow we may look blind....heavy sigh.
An interesting note on the game: Cueto got 11 strikeouts which means that we had three starters in a row get 10 or more K's for the first time since Halicki, Montefusco and (I missed who). Hey look, a trivia question!! Who was it and what year?
Three to go!! Do you like our chances??
