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. Ex-Giant Jonathan Sanchez was DFA by the Royals. Would you like to see him back in a Giants uniform as possibly a bullpen arm? Don’t forget to go to the SF Giants Rumors Facebook page to share your thoughts on Zito’s performance, Posey’s big night, Sanchez injury and J. Sanchez getting DFA by the Royals. ~King of Cali (Steven) ———-——–—-—
