GIANTS 3 - DODGERS 0
Jonathan Sanchez took his perfectly shaped eyebrows to the mound with him in Los Angeles and shut the Dodgers down. He went 7 sparkling innings, struck out 9, and walked only one batter!
The walk stat is huge because that is the one thing that has been keeping Sanchez from reaching the next level and becoming a more consistent pitcher. He has walked 3 batters or less in each of his last 6 starts including tonight. If he can keep his walks down the rest of the year then he will be tough coming out of the #4 spot in the rotation down the stretch.
Nothing wrong with that.

The Mercury News makes a good point as to why Brandon Belt won't be up this season. Although I do wonder why guys like Brett Pill don't get the call but I'm not the GM.
Lastly this video is hilarious. It's a Dodgers' fan otherwise it wouldn't be as funny but since it is I am laughing every time I even think about this clip:
Oh, I almost forgot we had a Sergio Romo sighting tonight:
