Game Wrap 9/11/2013: Giants 4 Rockies 3

The Giants won a tight battle with the Rockies as Brandon Belt had the GW hit.  Key Lines:

Marco Scutaro- 2 for 4, 2B, BB.  BA= .299.  I saw Scooter grab his lower back during an AB in yesterday's game, but he showed up bright-eyed and bushy-tailed today and told Boch he really wanted to play.  The hit parade continues!

Brandon Belt- 1 for 3, 2 BB.  BA= .284.  Another nice game for Belt as he reaches base 3 times and drives in the winning run.

Brandon Crawford- 2 for 4, 2B.  BA= .260.  Crawford got a rest yesterday and came back with a strong game today.

Yusmeiro Petit- 5.2 IP, 6 H, 3 R, 2 BB, 7 K's.  ERA= 2.53.  Petit started out like he was going to try to finish what he started in his last start retiring the first 9 batters he faced.  As it was, he came within 1 out of a QS.  Kontos would have allowed one of Petit's runners to score, but Roger K hosed Arenado at the plate.

The Giants now travel to LA for a 4 gamer with Matt Cain opposing Zack Greinke in game 1.


  1. I've been impressed with how well Brandon Belt has swung the bat this past month or so. Hopefully he finishes the season strong and carries it over to 2014.

    The Rockies hitters did a nice job adjusting to Petit's outside deliveries but it will be interesting to see his remaining starts.

    Adrianza had a nice sacrafice bunt today. I'm interested to see him start a game at SS, since he's suppose to be a defensive wiz.


  2. Where are we in the draft totem pole? Where is Zito? Is it time to unleash him?

  3. It was interesting to hear the Rockies broadcast, at least from the 6th inning on (argh work@). Definitely not Kruk & Kipe, but a fun perpsective nonetheless. They were musing after the game how much $ is tied up in the PH/PR tandem of TuloCargo. They slso said nice things about Belt, Pence & the SFPD tenor who sang "God Bless America" - a nice touch on Patriot's Day.

    Th as nks for filling in the game details.
