After the Monday night beat down, the San Francisco Giants showed some life last night. It was a very nice bounce back win for the G-men. It’s their first win against the Nationals this year (1-4). They have now won 8 out of their last 12 games.
Pitcher Madison Bumgarner was on point, and tossed his 2nd career complete game. Bumgarner leads the NL in ERA at home (1.87 ERA).
The bats were rolling last night for a few Giants players. Hunter Pence, Brandon Belt and Marco Scutaro each had 3 hits in the game.
Belt has been on fire as of late, and seems to be locked in at the plate. He has 9 hits in his last 14 AB’s. I do believe Belt will continue to put better AB’s together with Melky Cabrera, Buster Posey, Pablo Sandoval and Pence taking a lot of the pressure off of Belt to produce at the plate.
Relief pitcher Brad Penny has been placed on the DL with shoulder soreness. In a counter move, the Giants have called up pitcher Dan Otero from AAA-Fresno.
