After The San Francisco Giants were blanked by Jason Marquis and the Washington Nationals yesterday, there really isn’t much to do but shake it off and move on to the next. And despite all the great pitching the Giants offense has really looked inept. But there sun always comes up tomorrow, and the Giants can get hot in a hurry.
Take Buster Posey. According to Andrew Baggarly, he has never gone 4 games without getting a hit, and he just had his third hitless day in a row. Not to mention that Andres Torres hit three doubles as a DH in an extended spring training game two days ago.
Jonathan Sanchez (2-1 3.21 ERA) is set to take on John Lannan (2-2 4.05 ERA) of the Nationals in a battle of left-handers at Nationals Park. The Sanchize made a gutsy appearance last week after suffering from dehydration due to the flu that was so bad that he needed intravenous fluids before the game. He is feeling much better now, and hopefully will be able to go much longer than he did last week.
First pitch is set for 1:05 PT tomorrow and can been seen on CSN Bay Area and heard on KNBR 680 AM.
