The San Francisco Giants were able to get the win Sunday to secure the series win against the Rockies. The G-men have won 7 of their last 10 games. Buster Posey (.332 AVG ) had the biggest at bat of the game. Which resulted in a 10 pitch battle, and a sacrifice fly that tied the game in the bottom of the 8th inning. Hunter Pence followed that up with his first homer in a Giants uniform. It was a 3-run homer to give the Giants a 9-6 lead, which capped a 5-run 8th inning.Yes, we all know Pence isn’t off to a great start in a Giants uniform.

I’m sure the big homer yesterday is a big monkey off his back. That homer was the first one hit by a Giant at AT&T Park other than Posey since June 29th.All Star outfielder Melky Cabrera (.348 AVG) continues to do what he’s been doing all season, a...
