- Comments Off on SF Giants Rumors: Bumgarner, Casilla, Sandoval, Posey, Etc…
The San Francisco Giants are back in the win column! The new $35 million dollar man (Madison Bumgarner) gets the win to improve his record (2-1).
With closer Brian Wilson likely out for the season. The Giants gave the ball to Santiago Casilla to get the save, and he was able to get the job done without a real scare. Shortstop Brandon Crawford did make a sweet play for the final out of the game.
Pablo Sandoval has extended his hitting streak to 11 games. It’s the longest active streak in the National League. Sandoval is currently hitting .341 during this streak. Is it to early to start the All Star voting?
The cleanup hitter Buster Posey had another 3 hit night! It’s back-to-back nights for Posey. They were 3 bloopers hits, but a hit is a hit in the record books! Those hits help raise Posey’s average to .375.
Well I wouldn’t say Melky Cabrera is hot, but he did snap his 0-for-12 hitless streak by hitting an RBI triple. Cabrera can really swing the bat (.283 AVG) and I wouldn’t expect this guy to have very many long hitless streaks.
The 7, 8, and 9th inning belonged to the Giants bullpen. Clay Hensley, Sergio Romo and Casilla combined to face 10 hitters and just allowing 1 hit. It was a shutdown performance for a very confident bullpen!
