March 4th, 2013
As we count down to Opening Day we would like to highlight some of the players and coaches we will be cheering on during the 2013 season. Be sure to check out our 2013 Media Guide for more tidbits about our players and coaches.
- Had an outstanding 2012 postseason, going 2-0 with a 1.69 ERA (3er, 16.0ip) in three starts.
- Had his best start in a Giants uniform in Game 5 of the LCS at St. Louis, tossing 7.2-scoreless innings with one BB and six Ks in the Giants’ 5-0 possible elimination game victory.
- Became just the fourth Giants pitcher to not allow a run with one or fewer walks in 7.0-or-more innings in a postseason game during the live ball era (since 1920)… the other Giants pitchers to accomplish the feat are: Tim Lincecum (2010 NLDS vs. Atlanta), Jason Schmidt (2003 NLDS vs. Florida) and Jack Scott (1922 WS vs. New York- AL) (Elias).
- Made his first-ever World Series appearance in Game 1 vs. Detroit, matching up with Justin Verlander.
- Zito ended his season with the Giants winning his last 14 starts, including all three in the postseason.
