We Got the Sweep!

I love sweeps!  And they’re that much sweeter when the Dodgers lose 3 in a row at the same time!  YES!  We’re now within a half game of them again.  It’s coming together.  Starting pitching has rocked this week.  My favorite was the Cueto game yesterday.  Even though the poor guy only got one run of support, he was able to get a complete game shutout with 11 strikeouts.  And it was his 100th win to boot!  Thank goodness!  I love the chemistry that has developed between Buster and Cueto.  You can see they are both having such a good time during those starts.  Then there was the win that started it all on Monday.  Bumgarner pitched beautifully, then the bullpen almost gave it up.  After almost 4 hours I thought I was going to be physically ill if they let that one go, but Casilla set the tone and ended up saving the day, literally, and logging his 100th save (congrats, Santiago!).  Then today, I didn’t get to watch the game, but I got updates from my brother every few minutes.  The first text said 3-0 Giants, then 4-3 Pads, then 4-4, then 6-4 Giants, then half an hour later it was 12-4 Giants.  WHAT???  How did they hit so much today?  Final score was 13 to 9.  Duffy, Belt, and Pence each had three hits, Belt alone had 5 RBI, and Samardzija even got in on the action with a hit and an RBI.  I like it!  This is just what they needed as they head over to New York to take on the Mets this weekend.  Talk about happy flight!  OK, guys – keep this going.  Make sure you get plenty of rest on Thursday, then go after them!  Until next time, GO GIANTS!  TAKE ANOTHER SERIES!
