Gregor Blanco went 1-for-3 with a home run, two RBI and a run scored in the Giants 4-1 win over the Rockies on Thursday.

Blanco's rare homer put the Giants ahead in the bottom of the second inning and they never looked back. He isn't an everyday player, but he most the most of his opportunity on Thursday.

Sergio Romo will share the closing opportunities with Santiago Casilla going forward.

Romo pitched a scoreless inning and recorded a hold on Thursday afternoon. He hasn't given up an earned run since July 19 and appears to be back to his old self. Don't be surprised if he see chances down the stretch, especially if Casilla falters at any point.

Santiago Casilla earned his 12th save of the season after he pitched a scoreless ninth and closed out the Giants' 4-1 win over the Rockies on Thursday. He walked one batter.

Bruce Bochy indicated after the game that he was going to go with a committee at closer. Casilla, Romo and Affeldt could all get work depending on the matchups. Casilla has only blown one save since taking over the closer job but has allowed five runs over his last 11 appearances.

Casilla has been solid since taking over the ninth inning role from Sergio Romo and will continue to see save opportunities on most nights. It is worth noting that since Romo is back to pitching well, he could steal chances here and there, but the job is Casilla's to lose.

Santiago Casilla blew the save after allowing one run on one hits and a walk over one inning, but ended up with the win after the Giants came back in the bottom of the ninth against the Rockies on Wednesday.

After three-straight scoreless appearances, Casilla reverted back to his early-August form and struggled to close out another one for the Giants. He three just five of his 15 pitches for strikes and served up a game-tying double to Justin Morneau to cost him the save. The fact that he earned his fantasy owners a win was just dumb luck. Bruce Bochy is going to stick with Casilla though as there's been absolutely no talk of Sergio Romo taking back the job.

Buster Posey went 3-for-5 with a walk off home run and three RBI in the Giants victory over the Rockies on Wednesday night at AT&T Park. 

Posey now has five home runs over his current seven-game hitting streak. Use Posey now in daily games while he is still hot.

Tim Hudson allowed one run on four hits and a walk with eight strikeouts over eight innings in a no decision against the Rockies on Wednesday. 

Hudson is having a very good season, but this game says more about the sorry state of Colorado's lineup than it does about Hudson's ability. Any pitcher facing the Rockies outside of Coors Field is a must-start right now.
