Game Recap: SF 15, MIL 2

Did you know that scoring a lot of runs and not allowing a lot of runs is good? Yeah, it's a fascinating thing to think about, and apparently the Giants have seen the light. This game felt great from the beginning. Andres Torres led off the game with a home run and soon after Aubrey Huff and Buster Posey went deep as well. That was all in the first inning. The Giants were up 4-0 and they never looked back. Add in a Buster Posey grand slam in the fourth inning, and the Giants had 4 home runs in the game, which was plenty for the win. There's really not much else I can say. This game was a laugher and it was never really competitive.

I will say that Tim Lincecum was as close to his dominant, Cy Young winning self as he has been in a couple of months. He had 10 K's and gave up 4 H and 2 BB in 7 innings on just 98 pitches. It was really a great start and an encouraging sign that was overshadowed by the Giants offensive outburst.

The player of the game is definitely Buster Posey. Tonight he was 4-for-4 with 2 HRs and 6 RBIs. The kid continues to impress, and he is the first Giant to have 6 RBIs in a game since Barry Bonds. Pretty good company. That Molina trade has really seemed to motivate him.

The offense is on fire, same with the pitching staff, let's hope Barry Zito can keep it going tomorrow.
