Last Night's Game
Jeff Samardzija pitched and won what may be his most important start this year, and he did so in fine fashion, shutting 'em out over 7 while fanning nine. The Giants picked him up in the top of the eighth, breaking a scoreless tie thanks to Kelby Tomlinson's pinch-hit single and RBIs from Angel Pagan and Hunter Pence. Derek Law allowed a solo homer in the bottom of the frame, but steady hand Will Smith finished the inning and Sergio Romo got his second save in three days despite allowing a hit in the ninth. The six-game losing streak against San Diego is over, and the Giants could sure use a sweep of this four-game set before finishing out the season at home.
