…. Swing town

The Astros proved to be no match for the surging Giants, who took two of three in Houston. Eli Whiteside hit his first home run, a grand slam, leading the Giants back from an early three-run deficit, and now the Giants send Lincecum and their league-best 37-16 home record against the Cincinnati Reds, who fancy themselves a contender.

So far, Freddie Sanchez has brought far more offense than I certainly imagined possible, (.389/.421/.611 1.032 OPS) and with an on-base percenta

ge hovering around .400, Garko has made a decent contribution as well. The Giants have scored 38 runs in their last seven games, over 5 per game, and if that kind of uptick holds, puts the team in prime position to make a move towards October. I have my doubts, but, there appears to be some hope.

It also might mean I'd have to reconsider my ranting and raving about Sabean's efforts, and perhaps eat a little crow. Alas, should that time come, I will happily do so, as I am always far more interested in seeing my favorite team win than I am in being right.
