Giants Roundup: And The Winning Streak Starts … Now.

  • Hey, lookee who won a close game! [SFGate]
  • Bruce Bochy has been letting Matt Cain and Tim Lincecum throw an awful lot of innings. Can someone say Mark Prior/Kerry Wood? Cue the uncomfortable smile and nervous laugh. [SI]
  • Russ Ortiz and the disabled list are starting to become good friends; yesterday, the veteran righty was placed on the 15-day DL. Someone needs to drink more milk. The good news is that Jonathan Sanchez is back. We heart him. What? [ESPN]
  • Hank Aaron would rather not relinquish his record. [ESPN]
  • The San Jose Mercury‘s Tim Kawakami will cut Brian Sabean. He ain’t even bullshittin’. [SJ Merc]
  • Speaking of straight shooters, Mama Bonds told her controversy-saddled son: “The Giants are losing because of the way you’re playing and you know it. So snap out of it … Nobody told you to be great, but you are. That’s your responsibility. So play like you are [great].” Ten bucks says Barry goes yard tonight. [The FanHouse]
  • That Mets clubhouse steroid deal is beginning to feel the pressure to name names; he already agreed to cooperate with the Mitchell investigation. For what it’s worth, Bonds has no connection to this scandal at this point. [NY Daily News]
  • There’s an RBI Baseball tournament in Ohio. We really enjoyed RBI Baseball. Vince Coleman was so fast. [Deadspin]
  • Barry Zito will get a shot a redemption when he faces the A’s and Dan Haren on Saturday. We’re fairly certain that our man BZ will lead the Gigantes to a glorious victory. Don’t blow it Zito. [SFGate]
