Five in a row!

It's about damn time. What does this mean?

This means that all 5 guys in the rotation - Vogelsong, Bumgarner, Heston, Lincecum and Hudson -- have been pitching well. The ERA for the streak is 0.98, according to Alex Pavlovic of CSN Bay Area.

Vogelsong threw seven shutout innings to pace a 6-0 win over the San Diego Padres that was the fifth straight overall and eighth straight at AT&T Park. It was also the third consecutive shutout for the Giants, who are riding a red-hot starting staff. Since Vogelsong’s implosion at Dodger Stadium, Giants starters have a 0.98 ERA. 
The Brandons gave Vogelsong a 2-0 lead in the second when Belt hit a leadoff double and Crawford followed with a walk. Belt scored on Justin Maxwell’s single to center and Crawford alertly took third, which allowed him to score on Matt Duffy’s groundout. 
Buster Posey lined a two-out single in the third and Belt followed with a walk. Crawford’s single scored a run and both Brandons raced home when Yangervis Solarte whiffed on Gregor Blanco’s two-out grounder to first. 
Joe Panik made it 6-0 an inning later with a leadoff homer.
