The Giants took three out of four from the visiting world champion Phillies this weekend, and put them on notice that things are by no means settled, either in the NL West or the NL East. Great pitching nearly always overcomes great hitting, and this series was the best proof of that. Time after time, the big Philly sluggers came up with men in scoring position, and time after time they were stymied. Perhaps a few of their long fly balls might have been cheap homers in their toy home ballpark, but it's a level playing field, baby. Our guys did it with our signature "ground game" spanking singles through the infield, and finding the gaps in the long alleys of Pac Bell Park. The Phillies only win came behind new acquisition Cliff Lee.
