The Giants win 3-0! MadBum is back, as he went 8 shutout innings only giving up 5 baserunners and striking out 8. He also gets his first win on the year. Also, Bum hit a sac fly in the 5th that was the real difference in the game aside from the 2 runs scored in the 8th. Boch went to Melancon in the 9th to register his 1st save of the year. Great 1st game as the Giants are on a win 3 streak and Stratton will pitch tomorrow and try to extend that streak.
The Giants advance to 38-38.

1) Ball bounces off the wall, Cutch picks it up, hits his cut, and Panik drills Pirela at home for a beautiful out that saved a run.
