Zito recorded a no decision on his last outing in San Diego and struggled as he lasted 3.2 innings and gave up six hits. His first three innings were lights out as the Giants had a five run lead until the 4th inning when the Padres drove in six runs.
He credited the Padres for hitting pitches he wanted to throw and tipped his hat to the team. “It’s tough to tip your hate, but you have to sometimes,” Zito said in an interview with MLB’s Chris Haft.
Zito has yet to face the Dodgers this season and his first outing will be a challenge. With Kershaw on the hill tonight, the Dodgers are looking to bounce back after losing a series to the Colorado R...

Pablo Sandoval – Hot
