The clubhouse that now houses the team with the best record in the majors has become a repository of "stuff."

Several players have medieval knight helmets in their lockers, part of some secret ritual that seems a bit more wholesome than a rally thong. The starting position players are wearing superhero T-shirts under their uniforms, purchased by Pablo Sandoval, who was Superman in more ways than one Saturday night.

"Tomorrow, Spiderman," Sandoval said after he accounted for both runs in a 2-1 victory against the Twins with a home run and a sacrifice fly.

The win moved the Giants to 31-18, the majors' highest winning percentage at .633. That would mean a whole lot more in September than May but is not meaningless altogether.

"It means we're playing good baseball," manager Bruce Bochy said. "We've been hitting on all facets at this point. The pitching has come around, we're getting timely hits, home runs. Pablo struggled early, and he drove in both runs today. We've been clicking. That's what it tells me."

Moreover, the Giants are having a blast together, which should happen with a winning team.

"We're playing hard," Sandoval said. "We go out there and we don't look at stats. We're playing our game. We're having fun. We have good chemistry. We pick each other up."

The true camaraderie test comes when things go south, and the Giants surely will encounter a dry spell they have avoided through the first 50 games.

But for now, they have hurdled all roadblocks. Injuries to Brandon Belt, Matt Cain (who will be skipped Monday), Tim Hudson and Santiago Casilla have not been reflected in the standings or the quality of the team's play.

Their roster is chock full of players who have slumped at one point, but most have rebounded, especially Sandoval and the starter who left in the seventh inning Saturday with a 2-0 lead.

Ryan Vogelsong has been on a roll that harks back to 2011 and 2012. After working 6 2/3 innings in his second consecutive scoreless start, Vogelsong has 1.35 ERA and 35 strikeouts over 40 innings in his past six games, five of them Giants wins.

The Giants are 7-3 in his starts overall.

"That stat means a lot to me personally," he said. "That means that more times than not I'm keeping the guys in the game. As a starting pitcher, first and foremost, that is the thing you want to do. Give your team a chance to win."

Vogelsong and Sandoval could don some of those knight helmets and joust for the title of best in-season turnaround. The oddsmakers might have to side with the Panda for how deeply he had buried himself.

He has his swing back now. In the second inning, he got a hanging 0-2 curveball from Samuel Deduno and hit it into the left field seats for his fourth home run in 17 at-bats after he had gone more than a month without one.

Depth has helped the Giants. Yusmeiro Petit has been the quintessential sixth starter, and he will be pressed into duty again for Monday's game against the Cubs and National League ERA leader Jeff Samardzija.
