The final pitcher of the day was Bartolome Fortunato. 13 pitches later (11 strikes) Fortunato had given up 2 singles, a double and a run and the Giants lost 3-5. Fortunato threw strikes....but too many of them made contact with Mariners' bats.
I have been a Giants fan for as long as I can remember. I have had Giants Regular Season Tickets for 25 years (since 1985) and Spring Training Season Tickets since the "new" Scottsdale Stadium opened in 1992. I have gone to Spring Training every year, except the strike year, since 1987. I go to A LOT of Giants games. I also go to Arizona for the Arizona Fall League every October/November. I figure I attended about 125-130 games in calendar year 2008......almost all of them involving Giants players. Baseball is a great game.....Giants' baseball is the best part of a great game!
