The San Francisco Giants snapped their five-game losing streak Wednesday afternoon with a 7-1 win over the Chicago White Sox that was highlighted by a seven-run explosion in the bottom of the seventh.
Jake Peavy, sporting a new number in 22, earned his first win in a Giants uniform after allowing four hits and one run in seven innings. The win snapped Peavy's 12-game losing streak and improves his overall record to 2-12 on the year. Peavy hadn't won a game since defeating the Toronto Blue Jays on April 25th and the Giants are now 1-3 in his starts this year.
The Giants received a huge break in the seventh when a call was overturned at home plate as Gregor Blanco was awarded home after White Sox catcher Tyler Flowers blocked homeplate. The last time the Giants scored seven runs in an inning was on August 17, 2012 when they scored eight in a 10-1 win over the San Diego Padres.
The last time the Giants scored seven runs at home in an inning took place during Game 2 of the 2010 World Series when they defeated the Texas Rangers 9-0. The last time they scored seven runs at home during the regular season occurred on September 7, 2008 when they scored 10 runs during a 11-6 win over the Pittsburgh Pirates.
Coming into the game, the Giants had scored nine runs in their previous 53 innings before erupting for seven in one inning. The orange and black are 39-6 this year when they score at least three runs in a single inning. The Giants are 8-2 at home versus the American League and 8-9 overall against the AL. The Giants finish the year going 1-3 against the White Sox.
They are 8-22 in their last 30 home games and the team is 28-18 in day games. The Giants have Thursday off before welcoming the Philadelphia Phillies to town Friday night for a three-game series.
