Sunday 22nd Oct 2017

In a pre-season rematch of last season's final game, the Giants took on the Rangers at Scottsdale Stadium Monday night, when Jonathan Sanchez dueled the very-tall Alexi Ogando. Both hurlers—and hard throwers--pitched well, though it was clear both were working on control and mechanics that go with velocity.

Ogando went three innings, and walked a pair, struck out four, surrendering a pair of hits and no runs, while Sanchez went four, surrendering a walk, a hit batter, two hits and a run, while whiffing five.

It was Tommy Hunter, however, who gave up consecutive singles to Freddy Sanchez, Pablo Sandoval, and Cody Ross--which plated two runs--followed by Pat Burrell who crushed the first pitch for his first homer of the spring to deep right center field.

And, that was it for the scoring in a game in which, for the most part, starting position players went at least six innings.

Burrell added a walk and single to his evening, and the slimmer Sandoval swiped a base, while doubles by Yorvit Torrealba--which drove in the lone Rangers run--and Chris Davis who started at third, provided the offense for Texas over the evening.

Worth of note, Aaron Rowand is down for a few days nursing a minor groin strain, and pitcher Matt Cain, whose arm has been tender, held a successful long toss session prior to the game.
