Giants win two in a row for the first time since May 27-28. The Rockies have now lost seven straight and have fallen off the pace in the West. Matt Cain entered the 6th with a 1-0 lead and got the first out but a single, walk, and homer made it 3-1 the other way in the blink of an eye. He finished the inning and the night and it looked like another slow Giants death. But the team rallied for one in the bottom half and another in the 8th and sent it to extras. The bullpen was stout and kept it together and they finally pulled it out in the 14th after 4 hours and 45 minutes. Cory Gearrin was the hero with three shutout innings. Buster Posey threw out two more would-be base-stealers, that's 14 so far this year (in 39 attempts). Giants are now 3-10 vs. Colorado.

p.s. Jae-Gyun Hwang makes his deubt tonight. (12:45 today)

When I was in England in the summer of 2000, I would get up early and get breakfast for my wife so she could get to work. Then I would check in on the internet for baseball scores. Every now and then, a west coast game from the night before would still be going on. This was that game. The Giants are finally playing some decent ball. Keep it going! Let's hope Blach can give us some innings today.

Hwang homers in his debut!!! WOW. You have to like that.

This is the 1/2-way point in the season, the 81st game.
