“W” #2 and Melancon's First Save

(Before It's News)

Win, 5-3 at SD

The Giants ended their sad opening road trip (2-5) on a good note with a quality start from the remarkable Cueto and an inaugural save from our big money new closer, Mark Melancon.  It is far too early to talk about a “must win,” however this one sure felt important.

All of the classic parts showed up today for the first time this season: a good start (game score 61, 7 solid innings), some offense from our big guns (Pence and Posey hit back to back dingers!), and an actual save (with a game ending DP).  Things were getting a bit tense way too early around here. I mean, come on, complete lack of trust in our ability to score runs and to protect a lead shouldn't be here until June. Right?  This game is a quick fix for that paranoia. We can all take a breathe now. It is going to be okay.  Until tomorrow.

(Note: No Vlog and limited posting due to the fact that my crazy life kept me too busy today. I had a big photo shoot with my gorgeous wife's dance troupe, so I really didn't follow the action. Forgive me and look for the Vlog again soon)
