The way the San Francisco Giants are playing lately, even a sloppy defensive performance couldn't cool off the NL West leaders.
Brandon Belt homered and Joe Panik snapped an eighth-inning tie with an RBI single, helping the Giants extend their winning streak to a season-best eight games with Sunday's 5-1 victory over the Tampa Bay Rays.
"We're just playing the way we play," pitcher Jake Peavy said.
"We just come out and play the best team game and have the best team approach. ... Don't get too high, don't get too low," Peavy added. "We've found a nice little run of consistency to be able to pull off some really tight ballgames."
