Brandon Belt went 4-5 with an RBI

After 50 years, tonight was the last time the Giants will face the Astros as a National League Team.

Tonight was the 16th attempt for the Giants to sweep an opponent this season as we are now 6-10 in games in which they have the chance for a sweep.  With the 8-4 win tonight we’ve had 6 sweeps all season (Cubs, Dodgers twice, Astros (twice), Rockies ), with three of those sweeps at AT&T Park and three on the road (at Colorado, at Los Angeles and at Houston).  Giants 8 – Astros 4
