Giants: win one more and they are in!


All the San Francisco Giants need to do against the San Diego Padres this weekend is win one game.  That's it.

One win and they are in the playoffs.

All season long, baseball fans on the West Coast have been pointing towards this series as the one that will decide the NL West.  This weekend the baseball world will be focused on San Francisco while the Giants will    have 3 chances to close out their first NL west title since 2003.  They will be throwing Cain, Zito, and Sanchez against Richard, Staufer, and Latos.

The Giants are riding a four game winning streak into this series while the Padres have lost 3 out of 4 to the Chicago Cubs.  The Giants are riding the homerun ball while the Padres are struggling to score even one run.

All this points to good things for the Giants.

I'm going to say the Giants close it out tomorrow behind the arm of "Big Game" Matt Cain and the bat of Pablo Sandoval.  Cain has been the Giants' most consistent pitcher this season and Pablo could use some more good mojo heading into the playoffs.

See you guys tomorrow!
