SF Giants bite the Snakes

Hunter Hundley 09.25

And they bit them good.

The DBacks scored a run in the first and a run in the third, so they had a two-run lead going into the fourth. And that’s when the Giants struck. Buster Posey singled and Brandon Crawford drew a walk. Jarrett Parker doubled, scoring Buster and Nick Hundley followed with a three-run home run. Hunter Pence came up with a solo home run of his own and the Giants were in business.

In the fifth, Denard Span led-off with a single and advanced to third on an error when the DBacks attempted to pick him off. Span scored when Pablo Sandoval reached on an error.

The Giants scored three more runs in the eighth after Pablo drew a walk and Kelby replaced him as a pinch runner; Jarrett singled and Kelby advanced to third on a fielding error; Hundley singled, scoring Kelby and Hunter reached on a fielding error that scored Parker. Joe Panik hit a sac fly scoring Hundley and Hunter was tagged out at third to end the inning.

The final score was: Giants 9, Arizona 2

We’re down to the wire with five games left. Here’s how it shakes out: the Giants are tied with the Phillies for dead-last, the White Sox have risen slightly above the fray and the Tigers have taken their place. The battle for the bottom continues. The winner gets first pick in next year’s draft.

We can still be winners.

    Draft picks are so “iffy” we need to continue our winning ways against all of these teams whose records are “better” than ours. Besides Bochy needs to expand on the 900 wins .
