Giants Score Their First Runs of 2012

The San Francisco Giants were blanked until the fifth inning, when Melky Cabrera hit a two-run home run off of Ian Kennedy to put the Giants on the board at 3-2.

The Giants tied the game at 3-3 on an RBI groundout by Brandon Crawford. Aubrey Huff and Brandon Belt both got hits in the inning, and were moved over on a Ryan Theriot sacrifice bunt.

The game is currently in the bottom of the sixth inning. The Diamondbacks have a 5-3 lead.


The Giants did a great job in the sixth inning tying the game on a productive out. Brandon Crawford is definitely an X-factor for San Francisco, and he came up big the sixth inning.

More at-bats like that from San Francisco hitters, and the Giants will be just fine in 2012.
