Happy birthday, Willie Mays

The Greatest Giant of Them All turned 85 today and saw the Giants come back from 4 down for a glorious 6-4 vic.

Here's the mlb.com recap -- 

SAN FRANCISCO -- Madison Bumgarner found his form after giving up four second-inning runs, and Brandon Crawford's three-run homer and Matt Duffy's fifth-inning triple keyed a 6-4 Giants victory at AT&T Park on Friday night.
Crawford's fourth homer of the season in the bottom of the second killed the Rockies' momentum after a big inning. Duffy tripled in a run in the fifth and scored on Hunter Pence's two-out single to give the Giants the lead. Meanwhile, Bumgarner didn't let a Rockies runner past first base the rest of his outing. He finished with 10 strikeouts in 7 1/3 innings, as his work helped settle the Giants after two straight losses.
