Offense Explodes in Game 1 Today

By Melissa Felkins

The Giants beat the Cubs in the first of two games today by a score of 13-8. Normally 13 runs for the Giants take 1-2 weeks to accumulate. Let’s hope they saved some for Zito this afternoon. Vogelsong increased his ERA though, only pitching 5 innings and allowing 3 earned runs (6 total runs in his 5 innings). But we’ll cut him some slack. The balls were flying for both teams today. Burrell and Tejada both went yard and Burrell got 3 hits today. Maybe we’ll see more of him now. All the starting lineup got at least one hit today, so I’ll take it.

Here’s the lineup for the next game today. I’m anxious to see how Zito pitches.

CF Torres
2B Burriss
3B Sandoval
1B Huff
LF Ross
RF Nate
SS Crawford
C Whiteside
P Zito
