With The Glide Ensemble and Change Band doing pre-game entertainment, Marco Andretti throwing out the First Pitch and a tribute to Chipper Jones it was easy to see that baseball was back at AT&T Tonight. Barry Zito kept the winning trend going by going 8 innings and only giving up 2 runs, while the Giants got him the win by scoring 5 runs on 9 hits. Braves 2 – Giants 5
Tonight in Kansas City it was a Giants All Star Game. Matt Cain got the win for the National League in the 8-0 shutout and Pablo Sandoval tripled in the first inning to drive in 3 runs, including Buster Posey. Melky Cabrera didn’t do too badly either. For going 2 for 3 with a home run and driving in 2 runs, he won the Ted Williams MVP Award (ironically enough, the last Giants player to win the award was Bobby Bonds, in 1973, when the game was also held in Kansas City). Congratulations to our great fans who voted in the Stars of the All Star Game!
