Big games don't usually occur in April, but Bruce Bochy and the Giants considered the win to be crucial despite the time of year.
The Giants gave up the lead in the ninth, but Angel Pagan and Nori Aoki rallied in the eleventh inning to take down the Rockies 5-4.
Bruce Bochy is backing Casey McGehee despite his current slump and likes that McGehee is taking the poor stretch hard.
