"A legitimate postseason contender"

Chris Haft of mlb.com wrote that in his wrap of the Giants' stirring 7-4 vic in 10 at chavez latrine.  

Well, they're 24-14, which equates out to 102-60. And Sandoval has finally starting to hit. He clobbered one in his final AB on Saturday, then got 3 hits today ....

 

The offense looked promising despite having scored three runs or fewer in seven of the trip's previous nine games, and though Bochy fielded a lineup that featured five consecutive position players batting less than .200, starting from the cleanup spot.
That No. 4 hitter, Pablo Sandoval, whacked three hits, including a double in the first inning that ended a 20-game streak without an RBI. Sandoval also singled in front of Hicks' homer and grounded another single with the bases loaded and nobody out in the 10th inning off Dodgers relief ace Kenley Jansen to break a 4-4 tie.
"I didn't worry about it," Sandoval said of his run-production drought. "I try to do the best I can and try to stay positive."
"He seems like he's got some confidence going," Bochy said of Sandoval, who has remained in a season-long slump. "He's got a little bit of a swagger going, and he has to keep that."
