On the Giants podcast with Michael:

#1 San Francisco Giants (69-74) reliever Zack Littell who was demoted to triple A Sacramento on Monday night after he exchanged words with manager Gabe Kapler during a pitching change seemed to have fired up the team with the Giants winning on Monday and Wednesday to take the series from the Atlanta Braves (88-55).

#2 The win on Wednesday had Giants starter Carlos Rodon dominate over the Braves line up with five innings of work giving up two hits and striking out eight in one of the toughest line ups that Rodon has to face.

#3 Rodon got a blister after leaving the game. Rodon said in the post game scrum that he’s been dealing with the blister all year long.

#4 Rodon has been pitching well all year long also on Wednesday he allowed only one unearned run, two hit and walk and second in baseball with strikeouts 220 to the New York Yankees Gerrit Cole who had 228.

#5 The Giants have Thursday off and host the Los Angeles Dodgers on Friday at Oracle Park for a 7:15 pm PDT. The Dodgers will go with starter Dustin May (1-2, 4.29) he’ll be opposed by the Giants Logan Webb (13-8, 2.88).
