Three of five

The Giants have gone 5-13 since the All-Star break. Or they have gone 3-2 since Saturday. Let's hammer the Nats!!!

So the Giants gave up Duffy for Matt Moore.

Here's part of the mlb.com story -- 

PHILADELPHIA -- After contributing significantly to the Giants' 3-2 victory Thursday over the Philadelphia Phillies, Matt Moore was asked about his initial impressions of his new teammates.
"I get the vibe that something good's always right about to happen," Moore said. "[Based on] some of the conversations the last few days with some of the everyday guys, they know it's going to happen. I don't see that panic or some kind of urgency."
Of course the Giants weren't alarmed. They were merely waiting for Moore to pitch.
Acquired from the Rays shortly before last Monday's non-waiver Trade Deadline to deepen San Francisco's starting rotation, Moore demonstrated his considerable skill in his first start with the Giants. He allowed two runs on three hits and walked six in six innings, employing a fastball that reached 96 mph and breaking pitches that surprised even some of his new teammates.
"I didn't realize his curveball was that good," Giants center fielder Denard Span said.
Moore wasn't breathtakingly dominant. He walked two of the first four batters he faced and yielded Aaron Altherr's RBI double in the first inning. The 27-year-old found a solution, though: be himself on the mound.
"I calmed myself down and got back to some simple things," he said.
