The best record in the majors - 31-18

A remarkable performance by the Orange and Black!

It was a quintessenial win at home -- 2-1 with Romo closing it out after giving up a homer.

Per Henry Schulman's game story for the Chronicle: Two guys who had been wobbly early -- Vogelsong and Sandoval -- are in top form....

Ryan Vogelsong has been on a roll that harks back to 2011 and 2012. After working 6 2/3 innings in his second consecutive scoreless start, Vogelsong has 1.35 ERA and 35 strikeouts over 40 innings in his past six games, five of them Giants wins.
The Giants are 7-3 in his starts overall.
"That stat means a lot to me personally," he said. "That means that more times than not I'm keeping the guys in the game. As a starting pitcher, first and foremost, that is the thing you want to do. Give your team a chance to win."
Vogelsong and Sandoval could don some of those knight helmets and joust for the title of best in-season turnaround. The oddsmakers might have to side with the Panda for how deeply he had buried himself.
He has his swing back now. In the second inning, he got a hanging 0-2 curveball from Samuel Deduno and hit it into the left field seats for his fourth home run in 17 at-bats after he had gone more than a month without one.
