Giants edge out the Brew Crew

The Giants faced the Brew Crew today. Edgar Renteria got his first 2 RBI’s by hitting a 2 run double. In the 6th inning Juan Uribe hit a home run to give the Giants a 3-2 lead. Bowker then followed up with a home run to go back to back to give the Giants a 4-2 lead. The Giants would blow the lead and enter the bottom of the ninth down 6-5.

 
Ryan Rohlinger hit a 3 run home run in the bottom of the 9th inning to get the Giants the 8-6 win over the Brewers. The Giants who need a guy with pop have hit a home run in every single Cactus League game so far. They have 23 home runs and Ryan Rohlinger leads them with 3 home runs. Rohlinger isn’t expected to make the team at the start of the season.
 
Barry Zito did get the start for the Giants and he gave up 2 runs in 4 innings.  Howry did pitch 2 innings giving up 0 runs and his spring ERA this so far is 0.00. The only player with multiple hits for the Giants was Velez who went 2-3 pushing his AVG up to .276.

    I know these games don’t count, but I def like seeing what guys are doing. It’s a pretty accurate guage of what’s to come. Except when all-time saves leader Trevor Hoffman doesn’t pitch. Gah! We would’ve had you! It was a pretty good game though. Well, up until the 9th, anyway.

    I like the Rays better than the Devil Ray’s! Don’t know why?

    I’ve been missing most of the Milwaukee Spring training action. For some reason it feels like less games are televised this year. I have caught a few on the radio, but I missed this one!

    Jane,

    I think Zito will have a good year. He’s coming into the season in really good shape. He has been on Brian Wilson’s workout this offseason. I think another bonus is that Linceum is the Ace. They also picked up Johnson so Zito doesn’t have to feel like he’s the man and needs to be perfect. He will be our #4 starter which should really help him cause he’s not going up against anyone’s ace. Zito would be a really good #4 starter.
