Talk about timing after Tuesday’s blog ~  Tonight in the 2nd inning, during the Giant’s/Cubs game,  Jose Quillen was hit by a pitch in the 2nd inning not once but twice, at two separate at-bats, by two separate pitchers!  Whodathunkit?   No need for an ejection.   Manager benched the pitcher as Giants scored 9 runs in the 2nd inning and went on to win the game 13-0.  Giants are in contention for the division title, but after losing to the Cubs last night by score of 1-0, things were getting a little testy for players and fans alike.   Tomorrow they go to the  Colorado Rockies who are  also in the running for the National West division title.   Too bad for the Giants they can’t average those runs over some of the games huh? 

An interesting note to the game…..Juan Uribe hit two home-runs (one was a grand slam) also in the 2nd inning, and as I recall this was off  two separate pitchers also, but haven’t seen the stats yet.  Giants games – torture?   You bet!  But that’s baseball!   Gotta love it!
