It was a nice hot day in San Francisco as the San Francisco Giants put an old fashion whooping on the Rockies (10-0) to sweep the series. Barry Zito tossed 7 innings of shutout ball, and hasn’t allowed a single run on the season. Is it too early to start the Cy Young Award campaign? Zito didn’t just do it with his arm. He also racked up a couple hits and an RBI. Someone needs to get this guy to put on a hitting clinic during the offseason (just kidding)!
Zito is the first Giants pitcher since Al Worthington (1953) to begin a season with 2 straight starts of at least 7IP and no runs allowed. Dating back to last season the Giants have won 13 straight Zito starts. In this span, Zito is 9-0 with a 3.20 ERA (via MLB Stat Twitter links).
The Giants start a road trip today in Chicago where the weather is bone chilling cold! All four games in Chicago are day games, so I hope you’re ready for afternoon baseball.
Nick Noonan is going to make his first ...
