SF Giants Rumors: Losing Streak Ends, Belt Show, Bochy Frustration, Great Pandino, Etc.

Belt_Giants_FutureWaking up this morning felt a little different. The sun was out, the birds were chirping, and reminiscing about the San Francisco Giants snapping their five game skid. All seems right in Giantsland now.

The Belt Show

Brandon Belt hit a solo homer in the 2nd inning to put the Giants up 3-0, but that lead didn’t last long as the D-Backs put up 4 runs in the 4th inning. The Giants would tie the game in the 5th inning, and Belt would put them ahead for good with a clutch hit to score 2 runs in the top of the 8th. Closer Sergio Romo slammed the door shut in the 9th to pick up his 9th save of the season.

Built Up Frustration, Finally Released

During this wild game, manager Bruce Bochy had to do something to light a fire under his team, and he did so by getting tossed from the game in the 5th inning.

The Great Pandino (Bambino nickname was already taken)

Pablo Sandoval added another 2 hits to his baseball card, but also took an early exit from the game due to injury. It appears that his bone chips were flaring up in his elbow, but the DL isn’t likely in his near future. Sandoval does want to play today, but it’s not clear if he will, or if Bochy will go with Nick Noonan to defend the hot corner.

Party Time

Is it too early to throw a welcome back party for Marco Scutaro? He’s showing signs of the Marco of old. Scutaro went 3-for-4 and scored 2-runs for the Giants. A hot Scutaro means the tables should be set for the meat of this Giants order.

Roster Update

Yesterday, Jose Mijares was placed on the Bereavement/Family Medical Emergency List, and Sandy Rosario was called up from Triple-A-Fresno to take his spot on the roster.
