On the San Francisco Giants podcast with Morris:

#1 The Giants Donavon Solano has stepped up big he came up with a huge two RBI hit in the third inning for a total of three RBIs in Saturday night’s game at Oracle Park to help pace the Giants to a big 7-3 win past the Texas Rangers.

#2 The Giants on Evan Longoria has been connecting he had a two run double, scored a run, with three hits against the Rangers on Saturday. Longoria has been key in the line up.

#3 Morris you don’t see it too often brothers Tyler Heineman of the Giants and Scott Heineman of the Texas Rangers were at home plate before Saturday’s game exchanging line ups and going over ground rules with the umpires Tyler said he would be happy to see Scott line out hard in four at bats.

#4 Giants manager Gabe Kapler inspite of the recent struggles of Hunter Pence is sticking with him to pinch hit or field when needed. Pence has now gone 0-23 through Saturday night. Pence did get a triple on Sunday snapping the longest slump in the majors this season.

#5 The Giants who completed their home stand against the Rangers over the weekend are in Colorado tonight to open a four game series. The Rockies have been going well and will be a tough customer in Coors Field for this series.
