Weekend roundup: Two more wins

The Giants continued their winning ways this spring, improving to 14-4 with wins over the Dodgers and the Rangers.

Against the Dodgers, the Giants got some extra base hits to spark an 8-7 win.

They had back-to-back triples by Andres Torres and Freddy Sanchez to open the game. Then, later, two-run home runs by Cody Ross and Pat Burrell.

Then in the ninth, Giants fans got a little glimpse of the future when three future Giants teamed up to tally two runs for the 8-7 win.

Thomas Neal and Francisco Peguero started the rally with back-to-back singles. After a double-play ball made it look like the rally would be killed, a wild pitch allowed Neal to score the tying run. After Brad Eldred got an infield single, Ehire Adrianza came in to pinch-run. He stole second and scored on Gary Brown’s RBI single.

On Sunday, the bats came out in an 11-8 win over the Texas Rangers.

All you need to know about Sunday’s game is this: Pablo Sandoval had a triple in the game AND a stolen base. AND it was his second stole base of the season. The Panda finished 2 for 3 with two runs and an RBI.

And there were some solid efforts from players battling for roster spots. Nate Schierholtz went 2 for 3 with two runs, two RBI, including his first spring home run. And pitcher Ryan Vogelsong gave up two runs in four innings.
