The Giants are on a bit of a roll right now, with last night’s grand slam win over the Brewers. They’ve swept, won and split their last three series, going 8-3. A win today would keep that streak going.

As has been the case for the last few weeks whenever Madison Bumgarner takes the mound, there’s every possibility that it could be for the last time as a Giant, so a win would of course be appreciated. The Giants have been hitting the ball well for the last couple of weeks, scoring 6+ runs in seven of their last 11 games.

Last night, that came on the long ball, with five separate players hitting them. And though Tyler Austin and Austin Slater both hit home runs last night, it looks like they didn’t get the Bruce Bochy line-up treatment that usually comes with it.

Instead, we get the Brandon Belt in Left Field experience, with Pablo Sandoval playing first. Belt is also batting leadoff, with Buster Posey right behind him. Worked pretty well last night.

Alex Dickerson is getting the day off due to the back tightness that caused him to be removed from last night’s game.

Also, there’s a pretty great giveaway tonight in Milwaukee:
