    I think they could get 1 more with Cain tomorrow.

      Madison Bumgarner pitched a CG 1 hit shutout vs the Division leading Reds, defeating red-hot Johnny Cueto 5-0

      It was Bum's first career shutout and gave hm 10 wins for the season
      Don't forget how the Dodgers lost, giving San Francisco sole possession of first place.

              I checked and the record for most consecutive team shutouts is six by the 1903 Pittsburgh Pirates.

                  Giants have tied the franchise record for most consecutive scoreless innings, at 36. They last accomplished the feat July 26-30, 1948.

                    SFG's starting pitching is sick. Period. The fact that Lincecum's been having a terrible season and they are still in 1st place is very telling. I think they're going to the World Series again.
                    My top 10 players:

                    1. Babe Ruth
                    2. Barry Bonds
                    3. Ty Cobb
                    4. Ted Williams
                    5. Willie Mays
                    6. Alex Rodriguez
                    7. Hank Aaron
                    8. Honus Wagner
                    9. Lou Gehrig
                    10. Mickey Mantle

                      I thought they were on the same side.

                        a couple more notes

                        Bumgarner is the first Giant to win 5 games in a calendar month since Lincecum in September 2010

                        this was the first ever calendar month where a Giant threw a no-hitter and a teammate threw a one hitter

                        -----------------------

                        from sfgate.com

                        In 2-1/2 months, consider these pitching feats along the shores of McCovey Cove:

                        1) Matt Cain threw a one-hitter in a 5-0 win over Pittsburgh in the home opener, April 13.

                        2) Five nights later, the Giants beat the Phils 1-0 in 11 innings after Cain (2 hits in 9 scoreless innings) and Cliff Lee (7 hits in 10 scoreless) put on a pitchers’ duel to rank with the best ever in San Francisco.

                        3) Cain threw the first perfect game in the 130-season history of the franchise, a 10-0 win over Houston on June 13.

                        4) And in the past four games, the Giants have thrown four shutouts, the first time in franchise history they’ve gone back-to-back-to-back-to-back with shutouts.


                        -----------------------
                        from espn

                        The Giants became the 17th team to have four or more consecutive shutouts since 1918. The Baltimore Orioles did it most recently, with five straight in 1995.

                        The Giants' pitching staff has an NL-leading 10 shutouts. ... Bumgarner became the first Giants' pitcher to win five games in a calendar month since Tim Lincecum in September 2010

                          As I mentioned before the 1903 Pirates threw a major league record six straight shutouts.

                          7-0 vs New York Giants, Tuesday, June 2
                          5-0 vs New York Giants, Wednesday June 3
                          5-0 vs Brooklyn Dodgers, Thursday June 4
                          9-0 vs Brooklyn Dodgers, Friday June 5
                          4-0 vs Brooklyn Dodgers, Saturday, June 6
                          2-0 vs Philadelphia Phillies, Monday, June 8

                          The Pirates also threw a still standing major league record 56 straight shutout innings.

                            Good job Honus! I commenced to researching "Baseball Almanac" this morning to see the record for consecutive shut outs . . . I should have just came here, smilin' . . . with Cain on the mound tonight against Cincy, I'm liking their chances more and more by the moment of 5 straight. ;-)
                            Some's basturds, some's ain't, thats the score.

                                the four consecutive shutouts are a franchise record. The last team to throw five was the 1995 Baltimore Orioles. The 36 consecutive scoreless innings are (not) tied for the franchise record (but) two short of the franchise record, Elias now says, but mark a San Francisco record, which Madison Bumgarner broke with his shutout ball in the ninth inning Thursday night.

                                The 1903 and 1933 Giants had streaks of 38 innings.

                                The major-league record for most consecutive innings is 56 by the 1903 Pirates. Those Buccos also have the record for most shutouts in a row, 6.

                                Elias also says the Giants are the first team to throw four consecutive shutouts against teams that were in first place that day. They’re also the first team since 1966 to (have) at least two one-hit shutouts and a no-hitter before July 1.
