Nothing underlines the crappy season like this fact. It looks like Petit has proven he can start at the MLB level so that's a great find.
Here Andrew Baggarly's coverage for CSN Bay Area --
It’s been a meager feast this season, but for the
first time all year, the Giants posted a winning record on a multi-city
trip. This one was a New York history tour – first to Los Angeles to
play the former Brooklyn Dodgers, then a week split between Queens and
the Bronx against the Mets and Yankees.
They went 6-4 on the trip and finished the season
with a 34-46 road record. (It’s just 80 games because the July 4
rainout at Cincinnati was made up at AT&T Park.)
Starting pitching report
Pitchers like Yusmeiro Petit usually try to win a roster spot in spring training. He might have locked one up this September.
Petit didn’t get a decision, but he became the
first Giant to pitch the club to victories in his first six starts of a
season since Jason Schmidt in 2003. He certainly did enough to win,
holding the Yankees to six hits in 6 1/3 innings and walking off the
mound in a 1-1 game.
Mark Reynolds hit a home run in the third inning
off Petit, who otherwise worked quickly and efficiently yet again. He
has a 2.54 ERA in those six starts since joining the Giants from their
holding pen in Triple-A Fresno.
