Kontos' latest stint with the Giants was as successful as it was brief. In three appearances since being promoted early last week, the Chicago-area native allowed two earned runs on five hits in 6 1/3 innings. He recorded the win in two of the Giants' three wins against the Phillies.

He owns a 3.00 ERA in 21 innings with the Giants this season.
