Angels vs. Giants recap….Today in Baseball History…

Tim Lincecum is scratched from making the start. He has the flu, so Jeremy Affeldt gets the start. He’s not a starting pitcher. He’s going to be a reliever this season for the Giants. Figgins did lead the game off with a hit. Affeldt then struck out Kendrick. The next hitter is Matthews.  Figgins then stole 2nd base and then stole 3rd base. Matthews then walks to make it 1st and 3rd with one out. Torii Hunter then hit a double to get 2 RBI’s. Kendry Morales (who also is on my fantasy team) then hit a double to get an RBI. Juan Rivera grounds out to end the inning. Eugenio Velez starts the Giants first off with a single. Rich Aurilia then walked setting up 1st and 2nd. Bengie Molina then hit a 2 run double. The guys on the radio said if anyone else would have been running for Molina it would have been an in the park home run. Everyone knows Bengie is the slowest guy in baseball. He still did his job driving runs in though. After 1 inning it’s the Angels 3 and the Giants 2. The 2nd inning was 3 up for the Angels and 3 up for the Giants.
 
No scoring in the 3rd inning for either team. The Angels also didn’t score in the top of the 4th. Nate Schierholtz strikes out swinging but gets to first on the wild pitch. Juan Uribe then gets an RBI double to tie the game at 3. Kevin Frandsen gets a RBI single up the middle to score Juan Uribe. This giving the Giants a 4-3 lead. The Angels answer right back in the top of the 5th by score 2 runs off of Bob Howry. Bengie Molina gets an RBI single in the bottom of the 5th inning to tie the game up at 5. Nothing exciting in the 6th inning offensively for either the Giants or Angels. No runs scored in the 7th inning either.
 
The Angels take the lead in the top of the 8th inning by scoring 2 runs. Then two wild pitches by Luis Perdomo scores another Angels player giving the Angels a 3 run lead. On Perdomo’s 2nd wild pitch he walked the batter and the batter ran all the way to 2nd base. Perdomo then tried to pick him off and threw it wild again. This allowing the runner to get to 3rd base. The Angels end up with 3 runs in the top of the 8th and the Giants have no answer back this time and go scoreless in the 8th. Now it’s the 9th inning. If we (Giants) were up. I would call this the Nenth inning. I always called it the Nenth inning for Rob Nen. Man this guy was a great Giant closer. Well the game is now over and the Giants wouldn’t get another run. Out of the last 9 Giants to bat there was 5 strike outs.
 
Angels get 8 runs, 10 hits and 1 error. Giants get 5 runs, 8 hits and 2 errors.
 
There was only two Giants players with multiple hits. Rich Aurilia went 2-2 with a walk and scored 1 run. Bengie Molina went 2-3 with 3 RBI’s.
