Tonight's win was the team's 16th shutout. That leads the majors. (Second place? The Reds, with 11.) G-Style is all about the latest thing: run prevention, baby. That's what we do, we pitch like hell and hope for the best! Olympic Nate served notice with another big hit, driving in a rejuvenated Rental, and the bullpen flashed its muscle with six strikeouts in three innings of work. You have to be encouraged by another good start from Zito. If this guy can be average or above-average the rest of the way that will help our chances quite a bit. Garko!Garko!Garko! got two more hits, as did Uribe, and to be fair, so did Cap'n Gomer. I like guys who get two-hits in a game, don't you? Let's see some more of that, eh? If we keep our .133 shutout average (ShO/GP) going, we should see 5.6 more (42 * .133)! I think that means one of them will be a rain-shortened game. (I know we already had one of those, but it wasn't a shutout.)
The Cain Train rolls tomorrow morning. GO GIANTS!
