Consistency is key for Johnny Cueto

Even with a small blip in the radar during his time with the Royals last year, Cueto has been among the best pitchers in baseball at limiting opponents' offenses since his breakout season in 2011 (minimum 900 innings).

Pitching leading the way for Giants

Like the World Series teams of 2010, '12 and '14, this year's Giants roster is built around pitching. The staff has a lot to do with San Francisco's 13-1 record since May 11.
