EIGHT IN A ROW, NINE TO GO

Now that was a Satisfying Sunday -- 6 HRs, a four-game sweep of the Rox. The Giants have now gone from 75-70 to 83-70. They need either the Dbacks or the Braves to collapse and they have to keep winning to have a shot at the postseason. But damn -- where did all this offense come from?


The Giants hit 5 homers in an inning against the Reds 50 years ago, according to mlb.com

Here's MC O'Connor's take at Raising (Matt) Cain -- They had a season-high eight-run inning which featured FOUR homers (two by the Panda). They hadn't hit four in an inning since 1961. Even Matt Cain got in on the act with a two-run bomb. Both Brandon Belt and Brandon Crawford hit dingers. Mike Fontenot blasted a massive homer to start things off in the first inning. And Pablo Sandoval was ridiculous! (He was impressive with the glove as well.) The Giants sweep the Rockies by scoring 8, 9, 6 and 12 runs (35!) in the four games.
