Everyone expected the San Francisco Giants to run into a brick wall when they faced the smoking hot Braves. Instead Barry Zito tossed 7 innings of 3 hit ball and not allowing a single run. In 5 career starts at Turner Field, Zito is 4-0 with a 1.63 ERA. Buster Posey had a BIG night! Posey collected 3 hits and 5 RBI. One of his hits was a bases loaded double that cleared the bases.
Catcher Hector Sanchez was injured on a dive back to first base (pickoff attempt). As of now the Giants are not placing him on the DL. Pablo Sandoval will be the backup catcher tonight.
Update – Sanchez is being placed on the DL, Eli Whiteside will replace him on the roster.
Jonathan Sanchez was DFA by the Royals. Would you like to see him back in a Giants uniform as possibly a bullpen arm?
