Gameday Thread, #62: 5/8 vs. Pirates


Zach Duke
LHP, 1-1, 3.00


Paul Maholm
LHP, 2-7, 3.66

After the team's impromptu Retro Night yesterday, featuring a re-enactment by David Hernandez of the 2010 bullpen, we trust normal service will be resumed there today, now we've got all that pesky regression out of the way. The Giants have already succeeded in putting away the Nationals this afternoon, so important for Arizona to get back on track with a win here. Yesterday marked the first time since May 13 we had lost consecutive contests: Duke needs to act as a stopper here.

  1. Willie Bloomquist SS
  2. Melvin Mora 3B
  3. Justin Upton RF
  4. Chris Young CF
  5. Juan Miranda 1B
  6. Xavier Nady LF
  7. Henry Blanco C
  8. Ryan Roberts 2B
  9. Zach Duke LHP

That said, it's definitely the B-squad out there this afternoon. No Stephen Drew, Kelly Johnson, Gerardo Parra or Miguel Montero in the line-up. You'd think there was a tough leftie on the mound, rather than a journeyman with a career ERA+ of 95. Sill, maybe Henry Blanco can bail us out...
