Way back on August 7 in St. Louis, Giants starter Barry Zito took the mound, looking to rebound from a shellacking he took in his previous start against the New York Mets when he gave up seven runs in 4.1 innings.

Ten starts later, and his team has not lost a single game in which Zito got the ball, including Thursday afternoon's 7-3 win over the Arizona Diamonbacks. The 34-year-old Las Vegas native picked up his 14th win of the season by throwing six generally effective innings and allowing three earned runs.

Has Zito earned his way into the starting rotation for the playoffs? That's a decision that Bruce Bochy places in the category of a good problem to have.
