...The Giants won their 40th game of the season last night. The win came in their 66th game of the year, which is the same amount of time it took them to get to 40 wins last year. Sanspo mentions that the Giants have won 40 games within the team's first 66 games 27 times in the past. Of those 27 times, the team has gone on to take the CL 26 times (the one other time they ended the year in second place).
...Hisayoshi Chono and Alex Ramirez both went last night. The two have now homered in the same game 5 times this year.
