    Great story, Rich!

    Lost in the all the Barry Zito pitched a CG hoopla was Zito's 11-pitch at-bat where he got a single.

    Wags; Wasnt that something, Zitos at bat. That guy wasnt throwing any creampuffs in there, either. 96mph.What an ala mode that was on his great day. I hope he has many more.

    Timmy is having another ugly game so far. The Giants are down 4-0 in the bottom of the third inning.

    Looking at the glass half full....at least Timmy's velocity was up from the AZ start.

    but the offense continues to rake. they are 1st n the NL in runs per game to date. sandoval and melky are really hitting the ball.
    I now have my own non commercial blog about training for batspeed and power using my training experience in baseball and track and field.

    MadBum pitches a solid game as the Giants win 4-1 to take 2 of 3 in Colorado. Now they come home for the AT&T home opener tomorrow!

    Matt Cain with the 1-hit, complete game, shutout with 11 K's and 0 walks!!!! Bad-ass! This is at least Cain's second career 1-hitter. I'll go check.

    Atta' boy Matty, no chance for Pirates hitters today. Cabrera is a very nice fit!

    As Kruk says, the Pirates had "none chance, none"


    I love that quote

    giants 4, pirates 3 to even their record at 4-4 after opening 0-3.

    the big men have now scored 4 or more runs in all 8 of their games this year.
    they are looking to make it 9 for the first time since 2003.

    bumgarner and cain both took a no-hitter into the 6th in back-to-back efforts.

    the most recent times of taking a no-no into the 6th in consecutive starts prior to that:
    vogelsong / lincecum in may '11
    lincecum / sanchez in july '09

    three in a row for the big men!

    Got away with kicking the ball around last night, thats a ball Brandon's gotta take a bite out of once he runs it down. Back to back nice efforts out of Zito, control looks good!
