They might be Giants

Or they might not be.

While perusing the press notes available for each team on, I came across a few interesting tidbits on the SF Giants.

* The Giants have spent 16 days in first place this season. Over the previous three years, they spent a total of 3 days.

* On Tuesday, San Fran lost for the first time in 24 games (since 1958) when limiting an opponent to 1 hit.

* Since 1900, the Giants have lost three games in which they limited their foe to 1 hit. The first was in 1906 and the second was in 1917.

* The Giants lost three consecutive games (April 18-20) in which they didn't allow a hit with runners in scoring position. San Fran went 1-for-25 with RISP and lost 2-1, 3-2 and 1-0.
