A disappointing night
The only offensive positive was the fact that Pablo Sandoval hit his 6th homerun of the season. It appears Pablo is heating up as that was 2nd homerun in the last 4 games. I know a lot has been made of Pablo's struggles but consider this: Last season, through June 1, Pablo was hitting .301 with 3 HRs. This season, he was hitting .286 with 4 homers. He was only hittng 15 points higher coming in to June lst year than he is this year. In June, he hit .394 with eight HRs! Now he hasn't quite matched that production so far this June, but he's showing signs of heating up and his track record shows that he hits in the summer months.
Bruce Bochy never ceases to amaze me. The San Jose Mercury News reports that Bochy didn't want Posey catching Martinez tonight because: “if it’s going good, you don’t’ fix it.” Added Bochy: “You keep playing your hand if it’s a good one. We want to keep things pretty much the same, and hopefully we’ll keep scoring some runs.”
