Zito Tosses 5 Scoreless in Giants Win Over White Sox

By Melissa Felkins

The Giants beat the White Sox Wednesday 4-2 in the 14th game of spring training. The big story of the day was Zito-definitely some good news for him since the San Francisco Chronicles fiasco last week that had him being cut by opening day. The 5 innings Zito lasted was longer than any Giants pitcher in spring training thus far and he only threw 50 pitches, so I think it’s safe to say, barring a complete meltdown, Zito will be on the roster opening day as the #4 pitcher. I have a ton more I could say about Zito, but since everyone else is talking about him right now, I’ll wait.

Aubrey Huff also had 2 hits and 2 RBIs, including his first homerun of spring, a solo shot in the 4th off Jake Peavy and his no-hitter. Torres, Posey, and DeRosa all chipped in hits as well. The bats weren’t alive, but at least they weren’t completely dead either.

In case you are wondering how Rookie of the Year Buster Posey is fairing, despite only having 19 at bats so far, he’s leading the team in home runs (tied with Panda), RBIs and batting average.
