SF Giants Rumors: Sweep LA, Roster Moves, Real Pence, Mays Birthday, Etc.

HunterPenceRFThe hated Dodgers came to town this weekend, and looked to end the Giants winning streak. However, they weren’t able to leave San Francisco with any wins. The San Francisco Giants swept them right out of town, and are in the midst of a six game winning streak! They’ve also already swept a series from every team in the NL West!

Roster Moves

Prior to the start of the Dodgers series; the Giants sent pitcher Sandy Rosario and catcher Hector Sanchez to the minors. They called up outfielder Francisco Peguero and activated reliever Jeremy Affeldt from the DL.

Will The Real Pence, Please Stand Up

Funky Hunter Pence is going to face his former team (Phillies) tonight, and I’m sure that’s going to give him some added motivation. During the Giants six game winning streak, Pence has hit .320 with a homer and 6 RBI. Giants’ fans are seeing the real Pence, and not the struggling one after the trade last year.

Happy Birthday

“The Say Hey Kid”, Willie Mays turns 82 today. Happy Birthday to the living legend!
