Entering the contest, Giants starting pitchers had posted a 0.32 ERA over the last four games and a 2.10 ERA in the last seven.
"It gets a little contagious," Bochy said of the starting pitching. "You get on a roll, you get some momentum going, some mojo going, then things start rolling. Then you get a nice streak together. It really helps the team together.
The three shutouts the Giants posted against the Dodgers marked the first time the club had held their division rivals without a run over a three-game set. After watching Barry Zito and Ryan Vogelsong each throw seven scoreless innings in the first two games of the series, Tim Lincecum produced his own scoreless seven-inning start in Wednesday's 3-0 win.
Bochy said that there is a healthy amount of pressure to continue the strong starting pitching within the rotation, but that the team isn't exactly requiring a shutout from Thursday's starter Madison Bumgarner.
"I'll say this: Timmy wanted to keep up with those guys," Bochy said. "But it's a different team, and Madison doesn't have to do that. He just needs to go out and give us what he normally does."
