First thing to go with in today’s game preview, Homer Bailey, congrats and throw more of those. Bailey seems to be relaxed when knowing that he has a no-hitter bid, it sucks that he “Fucking walked a guy”, but hey, at least he got the no-hitter with the help of Joey Votto’s Fielder’s Choice.
Today, the Giants bring out Barry Zito, who pitched in Game 4, but did not pitch more than 3 innings as a starter, only 2 2/3. The Reds counter with strikeout machine, Tony Cingrani, he might try to go for one of C.Trent Rosecrans’ “PPS” (Pizza Producing Start) and “PPK” (Pizza Producing Strikeout), he has the ability to do it, but can the Giants get out of a slump and try to at least salvage a game in this series? Who knows, so here is what Barry Zito will be facing today.
Barry Zito: 5 1/3 IP, 7 H, 2B, HR, 4 R, 4 BB, 2 SO & SF
