Matt Duffy????

I saw him smash a pitch up the middle at the August 16 game and thought "this kid can hit!" 

Fast forward a month and a day to Phoenix. It was Duffy's 12th hit in the bigs in his 51st AB. His 5th and 6th RBIs.

 This is what good teams do -- score late and hold down the other team. Here's mlb.com's recap of the 9th inning --

The Giants' ninth-inning uprising against D-backs reliever Addison Reed (1-6) began with Pablo Sandoval's leadoff walk and continued with a single by Brandon Crawford, who went 4-for-4. Pinch-hitter Brandon Belt, ending a prolonged absence caused by concussion symptoms, walked on a 3-2 pitch to load the bases.
Up came Duffy, who rapped a 3-2 pitch to center field, delivering Sandoval and Crawford.
Sergio Romo (6-4) pitched a scoreless eighth to earn the win. Santiago Casilla recorded his 17th save and second in two days.
