I Love Mike Fontenot & Walkoff Wins

By Melissa Felkins

The Giants beat the Rockies tonight, again in walk-off fashion 3-2. Mike Fontenot was one of the heroes, hitting the sacrifice fly in the bottom of the 9th, allowing Aaron Rowand to score. I can’t give all the credit to him, but I did feel more confident in his at-bat than I would have with Posey who was up next.

Fontenot also had a great catch in the top of the 9th. Bumgarner pitched well, but just missed out on the W once again tonight. Wilson got the Win tonight.

I’m thinking when Sandoval comes off the DL, unless Miguel Tejada steps it up between now and then, he may be fighting Fontenot for everyday shortstop. I’m also liking how there is a different hero every night. They are starting to remind me of that team that won the World Series last year.
