Fans always use the hashtag #PitchersWhoRake when a Giants pitcher gets a hit. But no fan was expecting this. Santiago Casilla with the bases loaded took a 0-1 pitch the other way for a seeing eye single and his first major league hit and RBI. There is nothing quite like pitcher’s getting big hits. When it comes from one of the most unlikely pitchers to even get an at bat, it is even better. It’s one thing when Madison Bumgarner gets a hit. It is quite another when a relief pitcher does. Not to mention, after Santiago Casilla’s first major league at bat (which we will bring to you in all it’s glory later on the countdown) the chances of this happening was even more unbelievable.
