Weekend Recap With The Rockies

The Giants have won five straight series, but that can only last so long with close to no runs being scored.
 
The Giants were able to take 2 out of 3 from the Rockies this weekend. The Giants are still struggling to get run across, but the starting pitching seems to still be there for them. The Giants somehow are just getting enough runs to get wins. They are doing better than people thought they would. We knew the main problem was going to be scoring runs and that’s still the problem. I’m sure the Giants will make a move if they are close at the trading deadline.
 
Friday
 
The Giants sent Randy Johnson to the mound. He went 7 strong innings and striking out 9 Rockies. He just gave up 4 hits. Howry and Affeldt did give up 2 runs to make the game close. Wilson did come in to close it out and the Giants get the Win 3-2 and Johnson picks up win #297.
 
Saturday
 
The most consistent Giants starting pitcher took the mound on Saturday. Cain did pitch 6 innings, but did give up 5 runs. The Giants didn’t get on the board till the bottom of the 9th. Pablo Sandoval hit a solo home run over the right field wall. Rockies took game two by the score of 5-1. After two games the series was tied 1-1.
 
Sunday
 
Barry Zito was the game 3 starter for the Giants. Zito pitched another great game for the Giants. He pitched 7 shut out innings and only gave up 2 hits. He retired 15 consecutive batters from the 1st to the 6th innings. This game was a 0-0 game until Aurilia got a game winning hit in the bottom of the 10th inning. The Giants won game 3 by a score of 1 to 0. The Giants took the series with the Rockies.
 
Up Next
 
They are in Chicago tonight to face the Cubs in a short 2 game series. This is the Giants only trip to Chicago this year, and it will be over in a blink of the eye.

    Your Giants are pretty hot right now. I don’t want to say good luck to your team since the Dodgers and Giants are rivals. Your team does have some awesome pitchers.

    Nice recap!! Since the only team the Giants have played outside of the division has been Milwaukee in the first series of the season, I would like to see how the Giants do against the other teams now. I have confidence in Jonathan Sanchez! I just hope the defense is better behind him tonight…. and that we can score some runs! But Andrew Baggarly says the wind is blowing straight in at Wrigley, which doesn’t help much…. :/ But we’ll see! 🙂

    Hey Cali, What’s up with only a 2 game series? We are also having 2 games series with AZ and then two with Washington. But then again we are playing in Chicago at the end of the month for a 4 series. I’ll be there for 3!
