…. Bang!

Angel Pagan adds to his impressive start, slamming a three-run home run in the ninth inning, leading the Giants to a nice 6-5 comeback win. Panda has a 19-game hitting streak, a Giants all-time record, as the offense continues to show signs of life.

…. Joaquin Arias led off the ninth against Cincinnati closer Sean Marshall (0-2) with a walk, and Ryan Theriot followed with a single. After pinch-hitter Brett Pill struck out, Pagan lofted a 1-2 pitch 386 feet into the left field seats to

snap the Giants’ losing streak in Cincinnati at seven games.

Posey is fourth in the NL with a .368 batting average, Sandoval is 11th, Cabrera is 20th, and Schierholz is 23rd. The Giants are 8th in runs scored, 7th in home runs, 3rd in batting average, 7th in OBP, 5th in SLG, and 6th in OPS. Life-changing? Obviously not, but still, these numbers, albeit a small sample, are very encouraging. If the pitching can stabilize at our expected high level, we should be able to win a lot of games.

Sabean deserves some kudos for what looks like a much improved offense.
