Barry Bonds hits #754, Giants Game Recap
D Wizzle just got back from the Giants game. The Giants won 12-10 as Bonds hit his 754th homer of his career in the first inning. Thanks to Barry Zito, the Giants got off to a 6-2 deficit but fortunately for Zito, his team saved him from a loss due to the surprising offensive power tonight. This was the most exciting game all season for Giants fans. They were also treated to a fireworks show right after the victory. Many fans in the ballpark booed Zito as he gave up run after run. The crowd was all riled up and ready to boo him again in the bottom of the 4th but Bruce Bochy saved him from any further embarrassment by having Kevin Frandsen pinch hit for him. Everywhere you go, the fans are yelling obscenities at Zito. Basically, Barry Zito is the new Armando Benetiz. He is the new whipping boy for the team but good luck to Brian Sabean if he thinks he can trade Zito like he did Benetiz. One fan asked me if anyone is afraid of a 83mph fastball. Zito is fortunate his next start is on the road. Besides Bonds homer, the Giants also got homers from Ray Durham, Bengie Molina, and Pedro Feliz. It was a great time had by the capacity crowd but those have been few and far between this season. I will have video footage and pictures from the game soon.
