Yesterday the San Francisco Giants were trailing again in the bottom of the 9th inning, and once again pulled off a magical comeback. This time it was a solo homer by Brandon Crawford to tie the game at 2-2. However, the ending wasn’t what Giants fans were hoping for. They ended up losing in extra innings to lose the series to the D-Backs.
Crawford put together a three hit game, and is off to a hot start in April for the G-men. He’s currently hitting .320 with 4 homers, 10 RBI and scored 15 runs. Let’s not forget his great defense that he brings to the table as well.
Infielder Marco Scutaro was so hot for the Giants last year that we all knew he would have to come back down to earth someday. I just don’t think anyone thought he would come crashing down so hard and fast!
Scutaro is hitting .225 thus far, which could be worse. The alarming thing is he’s hitting .125 in the last seven days, so there’s no sign of him breaking out of his April slump. I still believe Scutaro is a great number two hitter. This guy can shoot a ball to the right side to move a runner. However, Scutaro seems to be popping up and flying out a lot more than usual. Last year he was spraying line drives and hitting the ball through the holes for hits. Scutaro is a professional hitter, and I believe he will find his stroke soon!
