Giants vs Brewers Live Blog for Friday

I will be blogging throughout this game with game updates and thoughts.

* It is currently 3-0 as the Brew Crew got three runs off starter Jonathan Sanchez in the first inning.
* Rickie Weeks led off the first with a single and Prince Fielder drove him in with another base hit.
* Bill Hall drove in two runs with a homer.
* The Giants still don't have a home run this season.
* Aaron Rowand is in the lineup today but he is batting an injured rib cage. Aaron is a gamer... had to remind you guys just in case you didn't know that.
* This Giants starting lineup is as threatening as a 90-year-old lady in a dark alley.
* Rich Aurilia is struggling big time. Where is Daniel Ortmeier?
* We are in the top of the 3rd inning and Dave Roberts just struck out looking. He did the same a few nights ago against Derek Lowe. Another great pickup by GM Brian Sabean!
* Randy Winn just hit a single to continue the top of the 3rd.
* Starter Carlos Villanueva already has 4 Ks.
* Sanchez is looking impressive as well with 6 Ks through only three innings.
* Kevin Correia will face Manny Parra tomorrow and Barry Zito will pitch against Ben Sheets on Sunday.
* Aurilia is now batting .083!
* Just when I diss Aurilia, he hits a single! Now batting .154!
* Brian Bocock is up now. He hits a bunt single. This kid has never played above Single A before this season. He did play in the All Star Futures Game last summer during All Star Weekend in San Francisco. He is young and has a good future as a major leaguer but I don't think he is ready right now.
* Runners on 1st and 2nd for the Giants. Here comes Sanchez. He is 1 for 14 in his career as a hitter.
* Sanchez strikes out again. Villanueva now matches Sanchez with 6 Ks apiece.
* The Brewers starting lineup has catcher Jason Kendall batting 9th and the pitcher batting 8th. Kendall would be considered a "second leadoff man."
* We are heading to the top of the 5th. 3-0 Brew Crew
* Milwaukee has scored five runs in the bottom of the 5th inning. Bill Hall hit a long three run homer off Giants reliever Keiichi Yabu.
* Sanchez is responsible for seven of the eight runs and his ERA is 15.75. He does end the day with 8 Ks.
* Will the Giants score a run today?
* Where is Barry Bonds?
* Hall now has 2 homers and five RBIs so far today.
* The score is now 8-0 and we are in the top of the 6th inning.
* This will be Villanueva's last inning as he has thrown 88 pitches through five innings already.
* Things may be bad for the Giants but at least they are not the Tigers! The Tigers are on the verge of losing to the White Sox and going 0-4 to start the season. It is 8-5 in the bottom of the ninth inning in Detroit.
* The Giants just scored a run! Rowand doubled and Jose Castillo sent him home with another double. It is now 8-1.
* Aurilia just drove in Castillo with a single! 8-2 Brewers. Aurilia ups his batting average to .214 with the RBI single.
* This game is getting way out of hand now. We are STILL in the bottom of the 6th inning and it is now 11-2 Brewers.
* Now it is 12-2 as Hall gets his sixth RBI of the afternoon!
* Giants reliever Brad Hennessey has given his team no relief as he has given up five hits and gotten only one out. Another run comes in so it is 13-2. They keep on scoring runs as I type!
* This will be it for me for this afternoon. Next game is tomorrow morning at 10:05 am in the West Coast.
