Giants take series against Rockies, move to 30-18

The Giants continue their winning ways in May, beating the Rockies late.

The Giants are playing at a .625 pace, which would be good for a 101-win season.

It's early. So early.

But it's okay for you to get excited. This Giants team just might be this good.

See, these wins are already in the bank. They don't have to give them back. The Giants would have to go 51-63 over their last 114 games to finish .500. They could play .500 ball the rest of the way just to get to 87 wins. And if they're actually this good? Look out. They could win the division in a romp.

Hunter Pence was the big hero, with a homer and an eighth-inning double to break up a 2-2 tie. Andrew Susac got his first major league hit, despite being on the bench in Fresno. Tim Hudson pitched three innings prior to his start later that afternoon. David Huff gave up a run for the Giants, even though he's on the Yankees now. Santiago Casilla was placed on the disabled list before the game and also recorded the save.

The Giants have now won three out of their last four, despite winning six games in a row.

All I know is that the Giants are now 12 games over .500, unless they're 13 games over .500, and they're 3.5 games ahead of the Dodgers, unless they're two games behind them.
