The Giants faced the Brewers again–second time in just three days–and while the Giants lost on the 19th 6-4, this time the Giants beat the Brewers by flipping the score.
Matt Cain pitched the start of the game in his continued effort to make the Giants rotation. Cain pitched five innings, faced 22 batters and gave up four runs on seven hits. He struck out four.
The Giants got a bat going in the third–Tim Federowicz drew a walk and Denard Span knocked a fly ball up and out to score a two-run homer. Nicely done, Denard! The Giants scored another run in the sixth when Aaron Hill hit a double and Hunter Pence followed it up with an RBI double.
The final score was: Giants 6, Brewers 4
I don’t know about the rest of you, but tonight I plan to watch the final game of the WBC featuring USA v. Puerto Rico. Puerto Rico is undefeated so far. That’s ok. Japan was too. Until last night. Team USA fixed that with a late inning run-scoring fielder’s choice. The game was tied 1-1. Brandon Crawford was on third and broke for home as soon as hitter Adam Jones‘ bat made contact with the ball. The Japanese third baseman bobbled the ball and Crawford scored the winning run.
The final score was: USA 2, Japan 1
The final game for the WBC championship is tonight at 6:00 pm on the MLB Network.
Be sure to watch tomorrow when the Giants Matt Moore faces Seattle Mariners’ King Felix at 6:05 pm on CSNBA or tune into the audio broadcast on MLB.com. At least that’s what it says on the Internet. I don’t really care about that. You know me. It’s all about TV.
