Game Recap: SF 1, NYM 0

It's a good thing Tim Lincecum and Barry Zito decided to have their best starts of the year back to back, because the Giants' offense has not exactly come bursting out of the gates to start the 2nd half of the season. 4 double plays, 12 men left on base, and a very clutch .143 avg. RISP in the 2 games to start this series. But enough of that.

The New York Mets had zero chance against Barry Zito tonight. He completely steamrolled them. Zito's 10 K's, along with only 4 baserunners allowed, makes for probably the best start by a Giants pitcher since, oh, yesterday. 2 years ago, this kind of start would have been unthinkable for him. Now if we can just get him un-banned from the Unicorn Club.

Let's never see Buster Posey play 1st base again, alright? He's got a cannon, and I think he'll handle this pitching staff just fine.
