As all Giants fans know the long ball isn’t our specialty, but earlier this week while visiting Miller Park and the Brewers the Giants came out swinging! To get the series started on a positive note Hector Sanchez had a pitch hit home run in the top of the 14th to send the Giants back to the hotel with a victory and Posey had a home run in each of the first two games. The rookie infielder Arias also went deep in game two for his first ever career round tripper! Hopefully the Giants can keep the bats hot as they head into Miami for the first time this season to face the Marlins in four games and see the new ballpark.
Right when it looked like the Giants were getting back on track versus the Padres they got swept by the Miami Marlins at home. Injuries definitely didn’t help, but the Giants are in a hitting slump similar to the one that ended their seaon early last year. This weekend the Brewers are coming to the Bay where they have to face the meat of our pitching staff, Lincecum, Bumgarner, and Cain.
