Last Night's Game
For the third time in four games, the Giants' starter-- Chris Heston, in this case-- pitched well enough to win, but was supported by one measly run, and for the third time in four games it ended 2-1. Heston, Hunter Strickland, Josh Osich, and Sergio Romo kept things close, but it all came to naught after Marlon Byrd struck out with the bases loaded in the sixth. Heston's sacrifice bunt and Angel Pagan's single had scored Juan Perez, who had led off with a hit, and the Giants pressed Jorge De La Rosa hard, but the lefty pressed back as he got Byrd and Brandon Belt on strikes. As has been their habit of late, that one inning was the only threat the Giants mounted, and the two solo shots Heston had allowed in the first stood up and dealt him his ninth loss of the season.
