Credit: Steven Robles – SF Giants Rumors It hasn’t taken the San Francisco Giants long to get back in their winning ways. After being swept in Milwaukee, the Giants came home to sweep the Padres. Last night the Diamondbacks came to town, and the Giants started that series off the way they ended the Padres series, with a win! Who said AT&T Park isn’t a hitters park? Don’t tell that to Buster Posey and Pablo Sandoval. Posey is currently hitting .344 at home this year with 2 homers and 10 RBI. Sandoval is hitting .364 with 2 homers and 8 RBI. The Giants are sending Matt Cain to the mound, and he’s still fighting for his first win of the season. However, the Giants really want the win to secure the series victory over the D-backs. Cain is currently 0-2 with a 7.15 ERA.
