The psychotic, but lovable, 2010 San Francisco Giants laid a major whoopin' on the feeble doggers, 10 - 2, and took over FIRST PLACE in the NL West. In one of the sweetest victories of the season, every aspect of the team put on a show. Think about it. On the pitching side, Jonathan Sanchez continued his climb into elite status with a true gem (game score 75!): 7 innings, 4 hits, 1 earned run, ZERO walks and a blistering TWELVE strikeouts. It was especially gratifying to see him show some real signs of growth, for example, a relatively low pitch count and he didn't get rattled in the few tough spots he had.. A couple low end bullpen members even chipped in perfect innings. On the offensive side, the fog didn't keep the balls from flying. Huff, Posey and Guillen homered. Three RBI's from FSanchez. But the real jaw dropper is Edgar Renteria: 4 for 5, including a triple, and two runs scored. Who knew? Well, I guess Bonehead did since he stuck him in the leadoff spot.
