Mighty Casey

Giants Win got to sit in Section 220 tonight. It was well worth it. Casey McGehee grounded into high 9th and 10th DPs -- AFTER hitting a grand slam. Lincecum and Petit combined for a 3-hit shutout. Belt had 4 hits.

Also -- the scoreboard had no stats all night. Perhaps one of the players (McGehee?) had complained....

Here's the top of Chris Haft's story for MLB

SAN FRANCISCO -- The trophy Casey McGehee received Friday night for winning last season's National League Comeback Player of the Year Award should have been engraved "To be continued."
Demonstrating the resilience that baseball demands from its performers, McGehee earned himself a reprieve from his dreadful start to the 2015 season. The embattled third baseman drilled a second-inning grand slam that highlighted a 2-for-4 effort and propelled the Giants to a 6-0 triumph over the Miami Marlins.
Before the game, Bochy hoped the ceremony recognizing McGehee would bolster his confidence.
"If you let the tough times define who you are, that's not how it should be," Bochy said. "It should be all the good things. Because you are one of the best players in the world. You should appreciate that. Sometimes we put too much pressure on ourselves."
