On the SF Giants podcast with Daniel:

#1 In spite of the tough loss in Denver to the Colorado Rockies on Wednesday the San Francisco Giants have won seven of their last ten games and are making a move on the first place Los Angeles Dodgers who are just three games ahead of the Giants.

#2 The Giants certainly got good pitching from their ace despite losing the game Logan Webb. Webb faced 16 batters and retired all of them in a row after giving up two runs in the first and one later in the eighth.

#3 Daniel, the Rockies CJ Cron got credit for breaking a 3-3 deadlock in the top of the eighth after reliever Jose Alvarez threw him a hanging curve ball and Cron just reached out and got it.

#4 Did the Denver thin air lend to the Rockies loses who were on a 12 game losing streak?

#5 Giants will try it all over again as they host the San Diego Padres Friday night at Oracle Park. The Padres will start Sean Manaea (2-3, 3.77) and for the Giants Jakob Junis (1-1, 1.74) first pitch at Oracle 7:15 pm PDT.
