The Giants are looking good so far this season. a pretty good pitching staff and the bat of Joe Panik helped SF win 2 of 3 down at Chavez Ravine the opening weekend of 2018.

Giants opening day starter Ty Blach scattered three hits over five inning to get the win and second baseman Joe Panik provided all the offense San Francisco would need when he blasted a a deep drive into the right field bleachers.

Panik was the man game two of 2018 when his top of the 9th homer did not waste the 7 innings of one hit ball Johnny Cueto tossed against LA. Tony Watson pitched a scoreless 8th to get the win.

Three losses in a row (two by shutout) floowed before SF busted loose for a 10-1 pounding of Seattle. New bats to the line up (Evan Longria and Andrew McCutchen) have added pucnh to the middle of the line up.

You can tell by the way Panik is swing the bat. Last year picthers could pitch around Joe but now with Longria and McCutchen behind him pitchers dont want to leave any thing out there for those two so Panik is getting pitched to.

It is true that both McCutchen and Longoria have started slow at the plate. McCutchen showed that taking away runs is just as big as scoring them when he went deep into triplpes alley to save two run behind Cuteo.

AT 3-3 San Francisco has shown it can pitch with the best of them and hit a little bit and play some defense, three keys to playing winning baseball.

Now can they put them all togetther for long periods of the season.. More click here
