Giants are hot suddenly. A sweep vs Colorado will do that to you. Unfortunately, 3 of their top 4 batting averages are on the DL and the 4th is a pitcher, but they've been piecing it together. Let's not forget that if their pitching keeps it close, they just need to string together 4 or 5 hits in a 7 batter inning once a game to win.
When everyone is expected to hit .275, and everyone starts off hitting .220, you know that the hits will come in a bunch.
Giants took 2 out of 3 from the D-Backs in April, and the one that they dropped shouldn't have been dropped.
This week they send a pumped up Freak, a steady Cainer, and a temperamental pitcher to the mound. I <3 it when the top three start a series.
2 our of 3 is not necessary but expected. A sweep would officially make it a hard core win streak, which they could continue into this next weekend Chicago, and then only need to pull a .500 record when going to Colorado and LA before coming home next next weekend.
Rossi might be starting to hit (I hope), I think Buster's almost out of his slump. He's really hitting the ball on the screws. I'd like to see him go deep and get a couple extra base hits on top of that to avoid a double dip slump which comes sometimes when you quite bust through a slump (Miggy's in like a quadruple dip slump aka the career-ender).
Anyways, 2 out 0f 3, but if Sanchie pulls it together, a nice little streak maybe?
