A Pat Burrell triple.
An Eli Whiteside triple.
An Aaron Rowand-Miguel Tejada-Eli Whiteside relay to throw a runner out at home.
A win for Madison Bumgarner.
Wait. Are we sure we’re in the right universe here?!
Madison Bumgarner also gave up two home runs. Well, okay, that’s not the norm for him, but there’s something bringing us down to reality a bit.
This game just rolled along with the Twilight ‘Zona theme and took advantage of the unusual plays. And of course they did, considering the fact that the Giants mustered enough offense to score more than one run.
Giants are now 2.5 games up in first place and are guaranteed to leave Arizona with the lead in the NL West.
Small victories, people. Small victories.
