SAN FRANCISCO (AP) cheap Yusmeiro Petit jersey is making the Giants jerseys’ decision to start him instead of two time Cy Young Award winner Tim Lincecum down the stretch look wise.
Petit is also making a habit of shutting down the Diamondbacks jerseys.
Making his third start since replacing Lincecum in the rotation, Petit (5 3) faced just two batters more than the minimum and matched his season high of nine strikeouts. He needed only 84 pitches to finish the gem, the fewest in a nine inning complete game by any pitcher in the majors this season.
Petit, who threw 26 first pitch strikes, came within one out of a perfect game against the Diamondbacks jerseys on Sept. 6, 2013.
“That’s my key stay up in the zone and (get ahead) in the count,” said Petit, who didn’t walk a batter for the fifth time in nine starts. “I tried to mix it up, every pitch. The umpire, he gave me the early pitch and that’s why I got a lot of contact.”
Leadoff hitter Angel Pagan had four hits and scored cheap mlb jerseys for sale twice. cheap Joe Panik jersey went 5 for 5 and cheap Gregor Blanco jersey added two singles to help San Francisco win its seventh straight home game.
Panik became the first Giants jerseys rookie since Fred Lewis in 2007 to have five hits in one game.
“He’s got a simple swing,” San Francisco manager Bruce Bochy said. “He doesn’t try to do too much, and he has a nice knack for getting the barrel on the ball.”
Overall, the Giants jerseys have won 10 of 13.
cheap Ender Inciarte jersey homered leading off the fourth to end Arizona’s seven game homerless drought, but manager Kirk Gibson’s club managed only three hits the rest of the way. The Diamondbacks jerseys have lost four straight.
The Giants jerseys stranded seven runners in the first three innings but took advantage of control problems by starter cheap Wade Miley jersey (7 11)
cheap Andrew Susac jersey drew a bases loaded walk in the first inning and cheap Pablo Sandoval jersey did the same thing in the second. Pagan scored both times.
cheap Buster Posey jersey also drove in a run in the second when Diamondbacks jerseys first baseman cheap Mark Trumbo jersey couldn’t handle a bounced throw from shortstop cheap Didi Gregorius jersey, who was trying to complete a double play.
Miley, winless since July 30, gave up three runs and five hits in two innings. He walked four and struck out one.
“It was just an all around bad game,” Gibson said. “I didn’t think (Miley) was throwing very well so I made a decision to move on and try and get someone else in there that could shut them down.”
cheap Gregor Blanco jersey singled and scored on an error by Inciarte in left field. Posey added a sacrifice fly to make it 5 0.
Petit did the rest in his best start since his near miss against Arizona a year ago.
He retired his first nine hitters five by strikeout before Inciarte went deep. The ball landed in McCovey Cove, the 101st splash hit since AT Park opened in 2000.
Petit also singled in the second his first hit of the season and scored on Posey’s grounder.
Petit’s 84 pitches were the fewest by a San Francisco pitcher in a nine inning game. Bill Swift needed 85 against Cincinnati on Sept. 17, 1993, and Don Robinson threw 90 against Montreal on Aug. 20, 1990.
