SF Giants Prospects

San Francisco Giants serve up Brewers 13-2

By Melissa Felkins

Wily Peralta is the Milwaukee ace with 15 wins and an ERA 3.58 was going up against Ryan Vogelsong who gets “none” run support when he pitches. AT the start of the game I was thinking long night. However, Peralta had a rough night after 3.0 IP he had given up 9 hits, two walks and 6 ER. The Giants were on fire.

The night all started with Joe Panik. The rookie was the second batter of the first inning and had a base hit off of a 87 mph slider. Buster Posey who had even better night at the plate singled to move Panik over. Panik scored on a wild pitch. This started what would become a 13 runs in 5 innings. The Giants saw 150 pitches by the end of the fifth inning and removed two pitchers from the game.

Gregor Blanco capped the night off with a two run blast to right field in the 5th.

Ryan Vogelsong pitched fantastic with a line of 7.0 IP, 4 H, BB, 2 ER.

Players to note:

  • Buster Posey was 5 for 5 with 3 RBIs, 3 R and 1 triple. He’s the first catcher in Giants (New York and San Francisco) to have two 5 hit games.
  • Joe Panik had a 4 hit night that was topped off with a double in top of the eighth.
  • Gregor Blanco was 1 for 2, 3 BB, 1 HR and 2 RBIs.
  • Angel Pagan and, Hunter Pence each had 3 hits each. Pagan was a home run away from the cycle.
  • After being buzzed and in the ninth pitch in the at bat Ryan Vogelsong roped a single (double for any other player) down the right field line to lead off the second inning.
  • The 13 runs were the most runs scored at AT&T Park this season.

Hopefully, this is the offense that clicks and can continue into September and October.
