I'm at a loss for words as Barry Zito out-duels Adam Wainwright and one-ups Tim Lincecum, going 8 innings and striking out 10 Cardinals in a 2-0 Giants victory. Check out the Game Score of 83! Who is this guy? What's happened to him? He's pitched exceptionally well to start the 2010 season and given Giants fans--finally--something to cheer about. I only saw the first two innings tonight so I missed all the excitement, but I did see Barry Zito strike out the first two St. Louis batters and get Albert Pujols to ground out weakly. Who knew he would do that all night long? And you have to be happy for Nate Schierholtz and Andres Torres, both delivering big hits when the club really needed them. It's not easy to win when you only score 2 runs. On the flip side, you generally win when you shut out the other team. The Giants have given up only 51 runs, the fewest in all of baseball. The Cardinals and Padres are tied for second at 57.
Matt Cain tomorrow. GO GIANTS!
