When the first run on of the game scores on the third consecutive walk issued by Barry Zito, it sets a tone that’s typically not going to work in the Giants’ favor.
Zito and the strike zone were not friends today, but he managed to get incredibly lucky and work out of a few jams and only give up one run. George Kontos gave up another one, and that was all she wrote.
Whoever the baseball gods were who decided that Zito vs. Latos was a remotely fair matchup is officially on my list, I’ll just say that. A lackluster recap for a lackluster game.
Giants attempt to right the ship and even the series tomorrow, as we all sob over beloved former Giants at the anniversary ceremony, with Vogelsong vs. Arroyo.
