The San Francisco Giants arrived in Cincinnati at 3am, so I guess that’s the reason they looked like they were sleeping offensively till the 9th inning in last nights game.
It appears Aubrey Huff will not be joining the team anytime soon. The Giants are purchasing the contract of infielder Joaquin Arias to take Huff’s spot on the roster. It’s likely Huff will be placed on the 7-day personal leave list or the 15-day DL.
Keeps On Hitting
Pablo Sandoval keeps the hitting streak intact with a single in the 9th inning. The streak is now at 17 games, and that’s the SF Giants record for a hitting streak to start the season. Sandoval passed Willie Mays. The longest streak since 2000 is held by ex-Giant Edgar Renteria in 2006 with the Braves.
Freddy Sanchez went 2-for-4 with 3 RBI in his 2nd game for the San Jose Giants. He’s currently 3-for-7 in his 2 rehab games. May 11th is the day the Giants would like Sanchez to join the team in Arizona.
