• Summary: Randy Winn extended his career-best hitting streak to 20 games and Noah Lowry pitched seven shutout innings in San Francisco's victory over the Astros.
• Hero: Ryan Klesko splashed his first homer as a Giant into the bay. Klesko's leadoff homer in the eighth was the 43rd splash hit by a Giants player and his second after also reaching McCovey Cove in 2003 with the San Diego Padres.
• Figure this: Winn singled to start the sixth and his streak is the longest by a Giants player since Robby Thompson's 21-gamer in 1993. It's also the longest current streak in the majors after Reds second baseman Brandon Phillips' 22-game hitting streak ended Monday night.
• At a standstill: Barry Bonds went 0-for-2 with two walks in his second straight hitless game, still stuck at 745 home runs and 10 from tying Hank Aaron's career record of 755.
• Quotable: "Barry carried us early, so it's good to see we are getting production throughout the lineup." -- Giants manager Bruce Bochy
• Elias Says: Klesko has hit only 30 of his 273 home runs off southpaws, 11 percent.
