3-game win streak for the Orange and Black

 I'd maintain that the top suprise so far this year is Chris Heston, who won his 9th today. The Giants are now 46-43.

The Giants have now won 4 of five since Hunter Pence returned last Tuesday. Here's the top of  Carl Steward's story for the Merc-News -- 

Rookie right-hander Chris Heston allowed just one run over 6 2/3 innings and backup catcher Andrew Susac slammed a three-run fourth-inning homer as the Giants beat the Philadelphia Phillies 4-2 at AT&T Park to complete a three-game sweep entering the All-Star break.
Heston (9-5) opened the game with six shutout innings and got the first two outs of the seventh before running into trouble, allowing two straight singles and then a double to the Phillies' Cody Asche. Another rookie, left-hander Josh Osich, struck out pinch-hitter Jeff Francoeur to end that threat, added a scoreless eighth, and Santiago Casilla recorded his 23rd save in the ninth, even though he allowed a run.
 The Giants banged out 11 more hits -- giving them 46 for the three-game series -- and scored all of their runs in the fourth. Brandon Crawford drove home Buster Posey with the first run, then Susac, who had been 2 for his previous 27, launched his third homer of the year over the center field wall against Philadelphia starter and loser Chad Billingsley (1-3).
