SAN FRANCISCO -- Johnny Cueto intends to pitch in next weeks All-Star Game after not getting to play in his first appearance there two years ago. Dzenis Burnic Jersey .If Giants manager Bruce Bochy has any say in the matter, Cueto will start in the Midsummer Classic.Cueto pitched a five-hitter to become the NLs first 13-game winner, and San Francisco beat the Colorado Rockies 5-1 on Wednesday night to move atop the major league standings.He has made an enormous case of starting that game, Bochy said following Cuetos fourth complete game this season. You look at his record, his numbers, what a great first half hes had. Its obvious were pulling for it to happen.With the Dodgers Clayton Kershaw on the disabled list and Jake Arrieta of the Cubs stumbling in recent weeks, the door is wide open for the Giants right-hander to become the second Giants pitcher in five years to start the All-Star Game, following Matt Cain in 2012.It would be big, Cueto said through an interpreter. It would mean a lot because it would be the first time that I would ever pitch in an All-Star Game. And I want to pitch.Cueto (13-1) allowed one run on five hits with eight strikeouts and one walk while going the distance for the fourth time this season. He also became the first Giants pitcher since John Burkett in 1993 to win 13 games before the All-Star break.The performance gave San Franciscos slumping bullpen a much-needed break.Whenever hes hitting spots, its tough, Rockies slugger Carlos Gonzalez said. Hes going to keep you off balance with all the different moves that he has. I like him because whenever you are trying to get big hes hard to hit.San Francisco (54-33) passed the Chicago Cubs (52-32) for the majors best record and has won five of seven. Buster Posey homered for the second time in three days, Brandon Belt doubled and tripled and Brandon Crawford drove in two runs for San Francisco.Posey struck out looking with a runner on third in the first inning before hitting his 11th home run of the season off Rockies starter Jorge De La Rosa (5-7) in the sixth.De La Rosa allowed three runs over seven innings with five strikeouts and one walk. The Colorado lefty has lost two straight since his four-game winning streak.Grant Green walked and scored on Belts RBI triple in the first. Belt scored on Crawfords two-out single.Green also scored on a wild pitch in the eighth and Crawford added a sacrifice fly to make it 5-1.Rookie sensation Trevor Story drove in Colorados lone run in the fourth on a fielders choice grounder with the bases loaded.CUETO AT THE PLATESan Franciscos starter wasnt as dominant at the plate as he was on the mound, but Cueto still managed to end an 0-for-26 slump when he singled off De La Rosa in the second inning.TRAINERS ROOMGiants: Bochy said he hopes to know by this weekend when OF Hunter Pence (right hamstring surgery) will begin a rehab assignment.
