Spring Training Game Wrap 3/17/2017: Rockies 5 Giants 1

Matt Cain allowed 3 runs in 4.2 IP and the Giants lineup went down quietly as we enter the dog days of spring training.  Key Lines:

Nick Hundley C- 2 for 3.  BA= .308.  Hundley was the only Giant in the lineup with 2 hits.  The rest of the lineup managed just 4.

Matt Cain RHP- 4.2 IP, 9 H, 3 R, 0 BB, 5 K's, GO/AO= 5/0.  ERA= 8.40.  If you squint hard, you can see a bit of progress here.  The K/BB looks good as well as the GB rate.  9 hits is a lot to give up in just 4.2 IP, though.

Mark Melancon RHP- 1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 0 K.  ERA= 0.00.  Another boring appearance by Melancon and we like it that way!

Will Smith LHP- 1 IP, 2 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 0 K.  ERA= 0.00.  A Will Smith sighting!  Having him pitch this early and last a whole inning is great news!  Outside chance he'll be ready by Opening Day.  Smith is a major key to this bullpen, IMO.


The Giants take on the Mariners tomorrow afternoon with Matt Moore facing Hisashi Iwakuma.
