The San Francisco Giants have dropped game 2 of the 3-game series to the Angels. Barry Zito tossed 3 1/3 innings before Bruce Bochy finally decided to pull the hook. Zito gave up 8 runs in his short outing.
Outfielder Melky Cabrera is having an awesome year thus far. Last night he reached 100 hits in 291 plate appearances. That’s the fastest in San Francisco history! The living legend Willie Mays had the record since 1958. Mays reached 100 hits in 295 plate appearances.
All Star Voting
Buster Posey leads the voting amongst catchers. Right behind him is Cardinals catcher Yadier Molina. Cabrera has passed Ryan Braun in the outfielders voting, and is now in the top 3 (which means starting position). Pablo Sandoval is 2nd in voting behind Mets third baseman David Wright.
Jon Paul Morosi of Fox Sports says the Astros will listen to offers for pitcher Wandy Rodriguez. The Yankees, Blue Jays and Giants had representatives in attendance to watch Rodriguez pitch last night. With two struggling pitchers, (Zito and Tim Lincecum) I can see the Giants trying to solidify their starting rotation.
