Sept 28-the GIANTS played San Diego at Petco, the GIANTS home away from home. The crowd was full of SF GIANTS fans making a lot of noise. The GIANTS scored early and held on. A series of errors in the 6th inning put Padres runners on the bases, but only one managed to score a run. Buster Posey added on to his batting average, going 2 for 4 with a triple. Final score: GIANTS 3, Padres 1.
July 17-we opened in Atlanta and with the Posey family looking on, Buster put on a hitting show for the GIANTS and starting pitcher Barry Zito, who managed to get an RBI of his own. Barry pitched a great game, with Buster catching part of it after Hector Sanchez tweaked his knee. The GIANTS got the shutout, the first in Atlanta since 2008, and Zito pitched that one too. Final score: GIANTS 9, Braves 0.
July 1-4th game in the series with the Reds and GIANTS torture is back! Vogelsong pitched a solid outing, and the GIANTS scored the 1st run in the game. Reds scored 2 runs in the 5th, but the GIANTS came back with a run to tie the game. We scored another run in the 7th, but the Reds scored 1 in the 9th to tie the game again. Angel Pagan hit a 2 out double bringing in Buster Posey for the walk off win. Final score: GIANTS 4, Reds 3.
Oct 14-1st game of the NLCS and the GIANTS got off to a slow start. Mad Bum pitched well through the 1st, but gave up 2 runs in the 2nd and 4 in the 4th. The bullpen took over and didn't allow another Cardinal run to sore. The GIANTS staged a rally in the 4th, but weren't able to score after that. Good job by the bullpen and the defense. Final score: Cardinals 6, GIANTS 4.
June 13-PERFECT!!! the GIANTS played the Astros again, and they not only racked up an amazing bunch of hits, runs RBI's and Home Runs, but Matt Cain (those of you who know me know that I am a big Matt Cain fan) pitched the PERFECT GAME. 22nd perfect game thrown in MLB history. 27 up, 27 down. It was beautiful. Final score: GIANTS 10, Astros 0.
June 25-the GIANTS were at home tonight and the fans greeted them with the constant chant "Beat LA"! So they did. Zito pitched 7 shut out innings and the GIANTS scored 4 runs in the 1st, 3 in the 2nd and another in the 5th. Pablo had some great hits tonight, along with Blanco, Theriot, Melky, Pagan and Sanchez. The bullpen finished up the game without allowing a Dodger to score. Great game! Final score: GIANTS 8, Dodgers 0.
Oct 19-game 5 of the pennant chase and its do or die time for the SF GIANTS. #rallyzito was trending on Twitter. The game got a slow start, going scoreless through 3. But the GIANTS got things going in the 4th and they drove the St. Louis pitcher off the mound. Barry Zito stayed in the game through 7 2/3 without allowing a single St. Louis run. Romo closed it out and the GIANTS head back to San Francisco to play Game 6. Final score: GIANTS 5, Cardinals 0
Sept 5-rubber game in the series against Arizona, and unfortunately, the GIANTS lost. It could have been worse, Trevor Cahill was pitching a No-No until he walked Brandon Crawford in the 6th, then Scutaro took away his no-hitter with a 1B in the 7th. Pablo got in a little scuffle that cleared the benches in the 8th, but nobody got tossed. Final score: Arizona 6, GIANTS 2.
