Colby Lewis gave up two home runs, just like Jonathan Sanchez. The San Francisco southpaw, however, put two men on in the 2nd inning before giving up his first home run, and that was the difference in the game. The unpredictable lefty got himself in trouble by walking Bengie Molina with two outs. Ninth-place hitter Mitch Moreland, who last year was a Frisco RoughRider (AA, Texas League), then launched a three-run homer to give the Rangers enough for a win. Colby Lewis kept the Giants from stringing together hits, but the Giants have a knack for that regardless of the pitcher. The freakish scoring of the first two games disappeared quickly, and solo shots from the indomitable Cody Ross and the inconsistent Andres Torres were all the Giants could manage off a tough and effective Lewis. Pablo Sandoval struck out and grounded into a double play, and Pat Burrell had four whiffs in four shots. Jonathan Sanchez was certainly a disappointment and was clearly out-pitched by his Texas counterpart. He'll have to do better than that if his turn comes round again. The Giants have played well on the road so far this post-season, and they ought to be confident that they can continue that run tomorrow and Monday. The Giants got beat with their own formula tonight, and they, of anyone, ought to know how effective that formula is!
GO GIANTS!! TWO MORE WINS!!
