Chris Heston!!!!

That's almost all there is to say. 

Heston -- who was an emergency starter for the third game of the year, then pitched well in Monday's home opener -- looks like the real deal. He's 2-1. The rest of the staff is 3-8.

What a relief. A 4-9 record is so much easier to take than a 3-10 record. Here's the first paragraphs of the story --

Receiving impressive pitching from Chris Heston and brief but effective flurries of offense, the San Francisco Giants snapped their eight-game losing streak Saturday by subduing the Arizona Diamondbacks, 4-1.
The first defending World Series champions to drop their first five home games, the Giants finally emerged victorious at AT&T Park with sufficient backing for Heston, who yielded five hits in 7 2/3 innings. Joe Panik lined a first-inning RBI single, Buster Posey contributed a two-out, run-scoring single in the third inning and Brandon Crawford added a two-run homer in the fourth.
One night after amassing 18 hits, the D-backs moved only two runners into scoring position against Heston. This victimized Arizona starter Rubby De La Rosa, who displayed his usual array of hard stuff while surrendering all of San Francisco's runs and nine hits in 6 2/3 innings.
