March 13th

Offensively, the Giants had plenty of hits with 10 including 3 doubles. Bad base running pretty much limited them to 3 runs on the day. Today's starting SS, Ivan Ochoa, had the only successful stolen base. Fred Lewis, Eugenio Velez and Randy Winn were all caught stealing, Lewis and Velez on pick offs. Kevin Frandsen also ended the 1st inning by grounding into a DP on the first pitch he saw in the game.

The 3 RBIs went to DH, Ray Durham who went 2 for 4 to bring his spring average to .387, RF Fred Lewis who also went 2 for 4 (.324) and Emmanuel Burris who replaced Ochoa at SS. Burriss was 1 for 2 with a double to raise his spring average to .294. He also turned a nifty 6-3 DP on a ball hit to his left in the 7th inning. Manny is another player I saw in this past Arizona Fall League. I am hoping things clicked for him offensively in November as he hit for a .365 average and a .450 OBP in 17 games.
