Conserving Power!

I remember when the Giants had power in the lineup. Seeing Bonds at the game last night. Made me think back when we knew we can watch him swing at least 3 times a night. This guy had to conserve as much power so he can let it rip with every swing. lol Watch the clip below. Awwwww the good ole days with Bonds. We miss your bat Barry!!!!!!

Giants vs. D-Backs recap – Today in Baseball History!

Matt Cain get’s the start for the Giants against Davis. The Giants do get the first 2 guys on base, but Davis gets the next 2 guys to pop up. Then he gets Schierholtz to ground out to end the top of the first. It doesn’t take long for the D-Backs to get on the board. Lopez hits a double and then Eric Byrnes gets and RBI single. Byrnes then steals 2nd base. That’s all the D-Backs would get in the 1st inning. After 1 inning it’s Giants 0 and the D-Backs 1. In the top of the 2nd the Giants are threatening with bases loaded. Burriss is up and hits a ball off the wall that gets him 3 RBI’s triple. This all started with  a 2 out walk to Holm’s. Giants now have a 3-1 lead going into the bottom of the 2nd. The Giants score again in the top of the 3rd on a Schierholtz home run off of Davis. After 3 innings its the Giants 4 and the D-Backs 1. Fred Lewis starts the 5th off with a single right up the middle. He gets to 2nd base on a wild pitch. Rich Aurilia hits a RBI double to score Lewis. Giants take a 5-2 lead. Ishikawa comes in to run for Aurilia and moves up to 3rd base on a Schierholtz ground out. That’s all the Giants will get in the 5th. Now the game is in the top of the 8th inning and still the same score. The Giants 5 and the D-Backs 2. Still no offense action for either team in the 8th inning. The game is now going into the 9th inning. McBryde hits a 2 run triple to give the Giants a 7-2 lead in the in top of the 9th. The D-Backs get back on the board in the 9th inning.
