GIANTS       88-63  ...           It could happen today.
Los Angeles  78-73  10 GB   Postseason still a possibility.

Giants defeated San Diego, 5-1.
LA defeated Cincinnati, 3-1.

Giants host San Diego; a rare 6:05 PM PDT (9:05 EDT) twilight start. Madison Bumgarner has a chance to drive the Golden Spike if circumstances permit.
LA is at Cincinnati; 4:05 EDT. The Giants will know the result of this game by the time they take the field this evening.

Last Night's Game
Ryan Vogelsong hadn't won a game since the end of August, and hadn't pitched a quality start since before that. Last night, over six businesslike innings, he won his 13th game and brought the Giants to the brink of the division title. Plenty of help had he, as the top of the order (Angel Pagan and Marco Scutaro) reached base five times and scored three runs between them, as Pablo Sandoval went 3-for-3 with his fourth homer in three games, as Gregor Blanco threw out a runner at the plate from left field, and as three sturdy relievers (Affeldt, Casilla, Romo) finished up with three scoreless innings.
