San Francisco Giants "2 Out Hits Toteboard" Week 2

It’s week 2 for the San Francisco Giants “2 Out Hits Toteboard”. If you didn’t catch week 1, I’ll be taking a look all season long at how the Giants do at the plate with 2 outs.

This past week wasn’t as kind as the first one. Overall the Giants went 14 for 61 with 2 outs for a .230 batting average. It lowered the season average for the team to .272. No one expected a .300 pace for the whole season.

Michael Morse led the way this past week with 3 two-out hits. Angel Pagan continued to impress getting 2 more himself. Pagan is now up to 10 on the season. He’s batting .500 and every run he has driven in this season has been with 2 outs.

The most impressive 2 out hit last week? That’s a no-brainer, Madison Bumgarner. On Friday night he hit a grand slam with 2 outs in the bottom of the 4th inning to send AT&T Park into delirium. Ok, one more time.

The Giants are still hitting .404 with 2 outs and runners in scoring position. Again it’s Pagan and Morse leading the way. This stat will rise and fall on a week to week basis. The Giants only had 27 trips to the plate with 2 outs and RISP. The week before it was 41.

I would think as the season rolls on that we will see Buster Posey and Brandon Belt slowly move up this list. Maybe we won’t. Who knows? That’s why I’m doing this all season long.  So come on back next week and hopefully I’ll be writing about a 7 game winning streak.
