Not since the 1943 Cincinnati Reds has a team won its first two games of the regular season via two 1-0 totals!
But this is the first time EVER that those runs were provided by one man via home run blasts!
Ladies and gentlemen I have seen the future and it is comprised of GREAT GIANTS PITCHING SUPPORTED BY SOLO JOE MVPANIK HOME RUNS!
MVPANIK not only homered to represent the single runs scored per each outing but he did so against Clayton Kershaw and Kenley Jansen! Just as the entire world knew he could and would!
Tonight was perhaps even sweeter, occurring in the top of the 9th inning to suck all of the energy out of those heathen blue devils cheering on the Dodgers!
But perhaps the biggest story of all was JOHNNY MVCUETO! He was perfect for six spectacular innings... He struck out 4 batters but the movement on his pitches kept Dodgers hitters off-balance all night through his seven innings, the last of which saw him finally surrender a jam shot hit--the one and only Dodger hit of the game. That base runner was quickly erased by a sharply-struck double play ball right to MVPanik.
Cueto was his wizardly self on the mound, shaking and gyrating and shimmying with the greatest of ease, infuriating Dodgers hitters like no one else.
Tony MVWATSON has now faced six batters this season and he has struck out those 6 batters, including the three he faced in tonight's bottom of the 8th. Watson is a true gem of a relief pitcher and it's splendid that he's a GIANT. The single most underrated move of San Francisco's offseason.
And Hunter MVSTRICKLAND was fierce and ferocious as the fiery closer in Mark Melancon's stead in the bottom of the 9th. He made quick work of the bottom of Los Angeles's order.
