Thank god someone on the team came into the season ready to pitch. Ok, not fair to Matt, perhaps. 9 innings. 0 walks. 4 K's. 4 hits. No relief. An economical 113 pitches. 0 runs. Anyone who is not really happy no matter how much abuse he or she has heaped on my man Zeets in the past is an idiot. Or at least, not a real Giants fan, although I repeat myself. A few other numbers: Rox gave us 7 walks and two errors. Thanks. Apparently it was a lovely day in Denver today, less so for Rox fans. Giants did not have a huge number of hits (for Coors Field); they had 10 and scored 7 with the walks and errors. The hits were spread out about as well as you could hope for, all starters had hits except for Gregor Blanco, and only Melky and Hector Sanchez had two. Pablo got us on the board with a home run to the bleachers with one on, and Crawford had three rbi from a bases-loaded double. Pagan and Sanchez picked up the other rbi. Giants have scored 21 runs in April, pretty much like last year, but so far, they have only played 4 games. The Giants have not lost the first four games in a season since 1950.
Apologies to MOC for stealing your July 11, 2008 title.
