Moore pitched seven and a third, allowing one run–a home run–eight hits, three walks and he struck out seven.
One thing that may have helped–right from the start–was Brandon Belt‘s splash home run in the bottom of the first. If he keeps it up, Belt might get his name carved under Barry Bonds on the Splash hit-counter. Barry has almost half the Splash hits so far with 35, The other 37 are split between the other Giants who have Splash hits. Pablo Sandoval is #2 with seven hits, but Belt is right behind him with six, and he’s still adding on.
The Reds tried to get in front of the Giants, but could only come up with one solo home run in the sixth.
The final score: Giants 3, Reds 1
What a game. Our offense was as good as our defense. And our defense was awesome. Did you catch Joe Panik‘s stop job in the eighth? He had Moore applauding. Me too.
Anyone else as tired as me? I think I need a nap.
