The Giants and Phillies slugged it out to a 6-6 tie after 3 innings but the Phillies bullpen shut down the Giants the rest of the way while the Giants bullpen just kept pouring gasoline on the fire. Game Notes:

The Giants kept the pedal to the metal with a Quality Start from Johnny Cueto RHP, timely hitting and Stellar D. Game Notes:
How many first inning, leadoff HR's have Giants pitchers allowed this season? Maybe it's just me, but it seems like a lot. This time it was Odubel Herrera CF off Cueto before most of the fans had taken their seats. With the way Cueto has been pitching, that did not seem to bode well for the rest of the night, but Cueto recovered to pitch well enough for the W. He allowed a 2-run HR to Cutch in the 4'th allowed just 6 hits, 0 Walks and 5 K's in 6 IP for the QS.
The Giants tore into the D'Backs for the fourth game in a row, scoring in all but 2 innings while ace Kevin Gausman RHP shut down the snakes offense for a runaway win. Game Notes:

Buster Posey's 3-run first inning HR was the first of 5 for the Giants in an offensive explosion that overwhelmed the D'Backs. Game Notes:

Mike Yastrzemski RF hit a monster grand slam HR in the bottom of the 8'th inning to cap a game-long Giants comeback from a 7-0 deficit. Tyler Rogers RHP shut down a shell-shocked D'Backs team in the 9'th to seal the Win. Game Notes:
The Opener did not work out so well in this game as Zach Littell RHP failed to record an out while giving up 4 runs on 4 hits and 2 walks.

Brandon Crawford SS drove in 3 of the Giants 5 runs to back a Quality Start by Alex Wood LHP with the bullpen shutting it down over the final 3 innings. Game Notes:

I don't have the numbers but my impression is that the Giants record in getaway games is terrible. Today was no exception as Johnny Cueto RHP gave up 4 runs on two HR balls to Kyle Schwarber LF in the first two innings and the Giants offense simply didn't show up. Game Notes:
