Just another one-run win for the Giants … again
Some people say the Giants can’t keep winning like this.
And yet, they still do.
The Giants won ANOTHER one-run game at home on Friday, when Aubrey Huff’s single in the bottom of the 10th gave the Giants a 2-1 win over the Oakland Athletics.
The win was the Giants’ 11th at home this, the 10th at home by one-run and sixth walk-off win at AT&T Park.
“That’s what this team does — guys come through in the clutch,” Huff told the Associated Press.
The Giants also improved to 5-0 in games started by Ryan Vogelsong. Vogelsong gave up one unearned run in six innings of work. He has now gone 20 consecutive innings without allowing an earned run.
Giants general manager Brian Sabean said this week that Barry Zito will not be automatically given his spot in the roster back once he returns from his ankle injury. Zito has begun throwing, but for now it looks like Vogelsong will have to struggle for Zito to return to the rotation.
