On the Giants podcast with Michael:

#1 San Francisco Giants (19-12) starter Alex Cobb didn’t look like he was running out of gas at all as he went 5.1 innings, surrendering just three hits and a run to the Colorado Rockies (16-15) in a landslide 7-1 win at Oracle Park in a Wednesday matinee.

#2 Cobb walked only two batters and was effective with a mix of pitches and keeping the hitters off balance striking out six hitters. It was the first time that Cobb has got in the win column since April 12th improving his record to 2-1.

#3 The Giants who swept the Rockies in the series and dominated them in pitching, hitting and runs scored. As this third game was no different from the first two games touching up Rockies pitching. Rockies pitcher Chad Kuhl suffered his first loss of the season now 3-1. The Giants shelled Kuhl for five runs in 4 2/3 innings.

#4 The Giants shortstop Brandon Crawford was seeing the ball just fine with three RBIs and scoring two runs in his own right as well. Joey Bart, Brandon Belt, LaMonte Wade Jr. and Joc Pederson all got RBIs for the Giants and handing the Rockies their fourth consecutive loss.

#5 The Giants for their next encore will open a three game series in St Louis against the Cardinals (16-13) on Fri May 13 at Busch Stadium in St Louis. Starting pitcher for the Giants in Kapler fashion has not been announced the Cards will start Steven Matz (3-2 ERA 7.01) a 5:15 pm PDT first pitch.
