The SF Giants have been demoralized in late inning losses lately, leaving them 2 Games back in the NL Wild Card. Back in the friendly surroundings of AT&T Park they finally put their offense in gear and thumped the Padres 9-4. Juan Uribe provided the thump by blasting 2 HRs and a triple. He scored 3 times and drove in 5 RBIs on the day. Juan has been smoking hot lately, homering in 7 of his last 19 games and batting .323 (20-for-62) in that stretch. Watch his big day at the plate just click Here!
Honorable Mention; Derrek Lee (He did it again!), Ian Stewart, Ronnie Belliard, Joe Mauer, Billy Butler, Mark Teixeira…
Less than a week after a couple of heart wrenching games against the Giants in Colorado, the Rockies are leaving their hearts in San Francisco. The Rockies were clinging to a 1 game lead in the Wild Card after two very tough losses in the first two games of the series. Pitching was the key for SF, along with timely hitting from Pablo Sandoval. This time the loss was courtesy of Edgar Renteria’s career day at the dish. Edgar led the team in the clubhouse and on the field as he rapped a game breaking Grand Slam in the 7th inning to give the Giants the lead. He had a 3 for 4 day with 5 RBIs and was intentionally walked in the 8th. Watch Here Here!
