Sweep, swept, sweep

The Giants are doing their level best to keep the NL from being completely embarrassed in interleague play, just having eked out a 3-2 vic over the Rangers to go 6-3 over AL teams this year. The AL was still up 87-76 with the Giants' win. (See correction below)

Apparently Zito's remembered how to pitch, as he carried a no-hitter into the seventh -- only to have Andruw Jones, who's apparently remembered how to hit, go yard. So the Giants managed to hold the Rangers to three hits in each game, or six hits in 20 innings. Perhaps Matt Cain's dominance from last night rubbed off on the staff today. Here's how MC O'Conner at Raising (Matt Cain) described it -- He pitched brilliantly tonight, having only one tough inning, the 6th. M.C. gave up a leadoff game-tying HR to Ian Kinsler, and threw another couple dozen pitches (walking two) before getting the third out. Other than that it was "lights out."

UPDATE -- a poster named Alan was nice enough to point out -- without saying anything derogatory -- that the Giants are actually 7-5 in interleague, thanks to the series in Seattle.

Thanks, Alan. I guess I was trying to forget that series.
