I think the kid is going to make it

That would be Juan Perez, who's playing like he belongs in the bigs. Chris Haft's game story for has details about last night-- 

Fresno, Calif., has its charms, but Juan Perez is performing as if he has no intention of returning to the home of the Giants' Triple-A affiliate.
Perez's two-out single broke an eighth-inning tie and highlighted a two-run uprising Tuesday night as the Giants rebounded for a 5-4 victory over the San Diego Padres, whose seven-game winning streak dissolved.
One inning earlier, the rookie center fielder prevented a San Diego rally by throwing out Mark Kotsay at home plate.
The hit left Perez with a .421 batting average (8-for-19). The throw gave him his fourth outfield assist, already tops among Giants outfielders, in just seven games.
Perez was recalled from Fresno on June 7 when center fielder and leadoff hitter Angel Pagan went on the disabled list. At the current rate, Perez likely will remain with the Giants even when Pagan recovers from his left hamstring injury and rejoins the active roster, which could be as soon as next week.
