Giants Roundup: G-Rod Shines, Gigantes Show Signs Of Life

  • The Giants won for the ninth time in their last 11 games, which officially constitutes a hot streak. Well, for a last place team. Yesterday, the G-Men were led by 29-year-old rookie catcher Guillermo Rodriguez (even the Giants rookies are old), who hit his first major league home run to tie up the game. Rich Aurilia then notched the game-winning hit to sweep the Brewers. [SFGate]
