What's Not to Like?

10 - 1!  14 hits for the Giants, a first inning home run from Pablo Sandoval, and 4 rbi (a personal best) for Gregor Blanco.  And he didn't even start the game.  Pitching?  We got some.  Madison Bumgarner allowed only 4 hits and one run in 7 innings.  He struck out 11 in 112 pitches, 70 of which were strikes.  Chad Gaudin finished the eighth and Jeremy Affeldt the ninth.

Everyone got hits.  Well, Brandon Crawford didn't, nor did Nick Noonan or Joaquin Arias, brought in late in the game.  Nor did Madison, for that matter.  But there were 14!  And did I mention 4 rbi for Gregor Blanco?  Seriously, much more fun that one of those tense last minute victories.

Actually, Brandon Crawford had 2 hits. That's what happens when I get over-excited.

Just when it seemed like MadBum ran out of pitches in the 6th he came out and blew away the bottom of the lineup in the 7th. Man, he's good.

I like those kind of games, let's get some more of those.
