Giants v. Dodgers, In Game Update: Brandon Belt Hits First Home Run, Giants Lead Dodgers 3-1

Brandon Belt hits his first home run of his major league career off of the Los Angeles Dodgers Chad Billingsley to make it a 3-1 lead for the San Francisco Giants. Buster Posey led the inning off with a single followed by a Pablo Sandoval single up the middle after fighting off a number of pitches. A memory that I’m sure many a Giants fans will remember for a long time, Belt’s HR will undoubtedly be one of the best moments of this young man’s life.

Jonathan Sanchez is looking pretty good through 3 innings as he’s allowed only 4 hits, 2 walks, 1 run and 6 strikeouts. His pitch count is still relatively low so he might be out there a while if his stuff stays sharp. The lone run came in the third inning off a Matt Kemp ground rule double.
