Belt belting

Three HRs in three days. Not bad.

Unfortunately, it was Chris Heston's worst outing of the year. Here's the top of the story ....

  Using home runs from Brandon Belt and Hunter Pence and three RBIs from Nori Aoki, the Giants outlasted the Reds for a wild 9-8 win on Sunday to claim three of four games in the series. San Francisco scored 30 runs over the three straight wins.
There were a combined 28 hits in the game, with every Giants starting position player notching at least one hit and every Reds starter in the field but Zack Cozart getting a hit.
The Giants took early leads of 4-0 through two innings and 6-1 after the third. In the second against Reds starter Anthony DeSclafani, San Francisco sent nine to the plate with five hits and four runs -- including Aoki's two-run single. Pence hit a two-run homer in the top of the third inning, his first of the season following Saturday's return from the disabled list. DeSclafani finished with a season-high six earned runs and six hits allowed over a season-low three innings.
Cincinnati scored a run in the second inning and provided its own nine-batter rally in the bottom of the third against Chris Heston, scoring four runs on four hits. Heston was pulled six batters into the inning without retiring a batter and had his shortest outing of 2015.
