Game Wrap Spring Training 2013: Giants 4 Padres 2
Yusmeiro Petit, who had been absolutely torched in prior spring appearances, got in a good one against the hapless Padres and the Giants offense was just good enough. Key Lines:
Marco Scutaro- 1 for 2, 2 BB, SB(2). BA= .219. Scutaro pulled the old walk/SB trick as he just kept going to an uncovered 2B after drawing the BB. This is the 3'rd time he's done it in his career. Too bad he did it in a game that doesn't count.
Hunter Pence- 1 for 2, 2B. BA= .361. The Rev looks like he's ready to start the season.
Brandon Belt- 3 for 4, 2B, SB(3). BA= .453. Belt has been ready to start the season for a long time now. He played LF in this one and showed no ill effects from his sore neck.
Brandon Crawford- 2 for 4, 2B. BA= .365. Interesting article in BA about Jake Dunning and his decision in instructional league to give up playing SS and take the mound. He made the decision after watching Brandon Crawford play in the AFL and realized that Crawford was ahead of him and that he had no chance of beating him out of the position.
Yusmeiro Petit- 4 IP, 4 H, 1 R, 2 BB, 2 K's. ERA= 7.11. Just a bit of redemption for Petit near the end of spring training.
Jose Mijares- 1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 0 K. ERA= 13.50. If there was any question about Mijares making the team, and there probably wasn't, it was likely answered with this appearance.
Affeldt and Scott Proctor pitched scoreless IP although Proctor walked 2 and gave up a hit. Proctor apparently can refuse and minor league assignment. Bochy talked to him and reportedly isn't sure if Proctor will accept or not. I had read somewhere that Proctor has an opt out on July 1.
