5/25/2014 Twins @ GIANTS Gameball and Joker


The Giants annihilated the Twins 8-1 to sweep them.
They now have a five game lead in the National League West, and the game's best record at 32-18, which is the Giants' best record through 50 games since 1993. No, I am not making that up. After 50 games in 2003, the Giants were 30-20.

GAMEBALL:

Mad Bum

Bumgarner wanted to get back at the Twins after they scored eight runs against him and knocked him out of the first inning in 2011.
Today, he did that, as he struck out 10, and he threw a three-hitter through seven dominant innings.

TIP OF THE CAP: emoticon

Michael Morse: He was he catch of the winter.
He had three hits, including the big one, a three-run double that opened things up in the fifth inning.
I used to be really tired of "Take on Me" when it was played everyday a the bar I hangout at,—don't worry, I don't drink—but Morse using it has made that song really grown on me.
Now, if anybody ever uses "Sweet Dreams," I'll vomit.

Hunter Pence: Who homered in the third, and then scored on Morse's double in the fifth.
Unfortunately for him, though, it appears that his scooter got stolen.

Gregor Blanco: He has found his swing, as he started the rally in the first, and that was first of three hits he had.

Pablo: Who continues to make us all eat crow by the day, well at least me who said that he would never reach the .200 mark this season. Pablo flipped a bloop single to get the scoring started for the Giants, and he singled in the eighth.

George Kontos: Who pitched two scoreless innings to end the game, and because of that, the rest of the bullpen was able to rest.

JOKER:

Ricky Nolasco

Nolasco owned the Giants when he pitched for the Marlins, then we pounded him when he pitched for the Dodgers last season, and we pounded him again today.
The Giants tagged him for seven runs, and he was gone after four-and-two-thirds innings.
Revenge is sweet, isn't it!

SMACK OF THE STICK: emoticon

Buster Posey: He just looks lost at the plate.

Josh Beckett: Congratulations on your no-hitter, I hope you enjoyed getting doused in KFC oil!

Chase Utley: Who was the final batter for the no-hitter in Philadelphia, and he flipped his bat on ball four before Brian Knight called it strike two, so Knight inevitably rang him up on the next pitch, which was clearly low.
