I got to see Brandon Belt strike out with a runner on second and no outs, and I got to see Brad Penny cough up the winning run. That was about it. Yesterday's extra-inning game was much better than today's, so I'm glad I was out of doors and missed devoting TV time to this one. I'm happy to see that Barry Zito pitched well again. It's a nice problem to have, this inability to sweep opponents. At least they are in a position to sweep, that's got to be a good thing.
Oh, and what to do about Belt? The poor guy is looking worse by the day. He's swinging and missing stuff, not even getting weak contact. I hope he can turn it around, the Giants really need him to produce. This lineup is a lot of little parts adding up to something good, and everyone has to pull their weight. When Brandon Crawford makes you look bad, that's bad.
