Johnny Cueto helped his cause with an RBI single and acted as his own excited third-base coach

Johnny Cueto is a national treasure -- that much is already pretty well known by now. The Giants right-hander entered Saturday's 11-3 win over the D-backs at Chase Field 14-5 with a 2.92 ERA and has been a big part of the club's ability to hang tough in the postseason picture.
But he's also a larger-than-life personality, too, and provided us all another example with a bases-loaded at-bat in the third inning. Always willing to help his own cause, Cueto -- who's had some definite adventures at the plate recently -- acted as his own third-base coach by windmilling his arms around after lacing a single to right field:

Despite encouraging his teammates, Cueto's hit (his seventh of the season) only plated Brandon Crawford. But you just can't knock that enthusiasm! 
Keep being you, Johnny.
