Giants top Red Sox 3-2 on very questionable walk-off walk

When a team such as the Giants is "dying for a win" as Marco Scutaro put it it cannot quibble about the method. When the Giants beat the Red Sox 3-2 at China Basin on Tuesday night on Scutaro's two-out bases-loaded walk in the ninth the crowd was silent because everyone thought the pitch was a strike. Scutaro did not immediately jog to first. Roger Kieschnick was just...

​Scutaro ​G​ets day ​O​ff, Bochy ​H​appy ​W​ith ​S​wings of Belt, Kieschnick

The “Marco Scutaro batting leadoff” experiment might have come to a quick end.   Scutaro is 0-for-9 in two games since Bruce Bochy took the San Francisco Giants leadoff production problem into his own hands, inserting the team’s everyday two-hitter into the first spot in the lineup. But after a second straight hitless night, Bochy could ditch the plan as quickly as it began...
