Correia Pitches in 1stThe San Francisco Giants have won their third straight game. Kevin Correia pitched magnificently, as he lead the Giants on to victory. He took a shutout into the 8th inning and had great stuff all night long. He finished giving up five hits over 7 2/3 innings, while striking out four. His ERA for the season is now a measly 2.63.

Well, it looks like our starting pitching is living up to its hype! We’ve got a solid starting five who could all be legitimate #1’s over the next couple of years. With this kind of rotation we have a chance to win every night. I’ve been a Giants fan my whole life and I can’t remember a time when we’ve had a better starting five.

Fred Lewis had a great game last night for the Giants as well, with two runs scored and an electrifying triple! He’s turning out to be all that we could hope for and it looks like he’s going to be the regular from now on in left field. I’m excited that he’s getting his shot. Two nights ago he thrilled Giants fans with his defensive play as he caught a ball off his shoe laces and came up throwing for home. He gunned the guy out trying to tag up from third on a one-hop to Bengie Molina. He’s a five tool player!

Tonight we get back to the top of our rotation where Barry Zito takes the hill. I really hope he can get his stuff together. It would be nice to see him get his first win tonight.
