Slater Slays A's

SF 6  OAK 2
I know, I know, it was only an "exhibition" game. (If there are no fans, can you still "exhibit" a game?) But it was still fun, even if it was weird. (Canned fan noise? Really?). Gabe Kapler had some fun, throwing nine pitchers out there for an inning apiece, and it worked. Giants pitchers allowed only four hits and two runs in Oakland tonight. Austin Slater starred for the Giants with three hits including two doubles, driving in five of the team's six runs. Mauricio Dubon, in case you were wondering, played both center field and second base. Chadwick Tromp started behind the plate and had two hits and two runs scored. Joey Bart caught the last three innings and got an at-bat.

They play again tomorrow in San Francisco, 6:45 PDT.
