From the outside looking in it sounds like the Giants had a good weekend. They won the series over the D-Backs. Giants won 2 out of 3 games. Sounds good right? Well not exactly. I mean don’t get me wrong. I will take the wins. It’s just the Giants still aren’t scoring any runs.
The Giants sent Jonathan Sanchez to the mound and he pitched great! The Giants won that game 2-0. Not much offense but they got enough to get the win to start the series.
The Giants send Tim Lincecum to the mound. He’s had a tough start to the early season. Well he goes out there and pitches a gem! He gives up 5 hits and gets 13 strike outs without allowing a run in 8 innings. Then relief pitching comes in and gives up 2 runs. Giants lose the game 2-0. No run support for Lincecum.
Randy Johnson goes to the mound for the first time against his former team in a game that counts. Johnson goes into the 7th inning with a no hitter. He did give up a double in the 7th but still held the D-Backs scoreless. That was the only hit the D-Backs got in that game. The Giants had a 1 -0 lead for most of that game. Once Johnson came out it seemed like I was just waiting to see who would blow the game. Well the Giants then in the bottom of the 8th got bases loaded with no outs. All they can get out of that is one run. Aurilia hits a double play ball to score a run and then the next guy gets out. These guys just struggle to get 1 run. Well anyways they still pulled that game out. They won 2 out of 3 from the D-Backs with only scoring 4 runs.
The only good thing is the starting pitchers are doing what we all thought they would do and the bats are doing what everyone thought too. lol I’m sure the bats will wake up. There is a couple decent hitters that have started off with a slump. Up next for the Giants is Peavy and the Padres starting tomorrow night.
