Game Wrap Spring Training 2013: Giants 9 White Sox 9

The Giants built a seemingly insurmountable 9-0 lead after 3 innings only to give it away in a 7 run 8'th inning for the White Sox as the game ended in a 9-9 tie.  Key Lines:

Marco Scutaro- 2 for 3.  BA= .400.
Hunter Pence- 1 for 2, 3B, BB.  BA= .250.
Brett Pill- 1 for 3, 2B.  BA= .167.
Cole Gillespie- 2 for 3, 2 2B.  BA= .600.
Madison Bumgarner- 2 IP, 2 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 1 K.
Fabio Castillo- 0.1 IP, 3 H, 5 R, 2 BB, 0 K.
Brett Bochy- 0.2 IP, 2 H, 2 R, 1 BB, 1 K.
Chris Heston- 1 IP, 2 H, 2 R, 0 BB, 1 K.
Otero, Romo, Kickham, Dunning, Loux- 1 scoreless IP each.

Gillespie looks like he wants that 5'th OF spot real bad.  Bummy had a nice outing.  Castillo and Boch Jr gave up the 7 spot in the 8'th.  Castillo left with a couple of runs in and the bases loaded.  Bochy promptly gave up a double and a dinger before getting the last 2 outs of the inning.


  1. Nice article on Gillespie in the Chron, he's a Giants fan from when he was young, and once met Barry Bonds at a restaurant and ended up getting tips from him in the parking lot, with his other college buddies (it probably helped that he was wearing a Giants t-shirt at the time too :^).

    He's also got nice stats in AAA, I wonder why he hasn't gotten more chances.

    1. Gillespie's MLB numbers with the D'Backs aren't terrible, in a small sample size. It looks like there is some real power potential there, which is hard to find from the right side of the plate.
