Tuesday March 20 vs. the DBacks

It was an absolute gorgeous day at Salt River Fields where the San Francisco Giants visited the Arizona Diamondbacks for what felt like a regular season game.
Salt River Fields was completely sold out and recorded its largest crowd (12,575) in its short existence.
Barry Zito pitched well for the Giants, pitching five innings, allowing seven hits and striking out three.
"My command was a bite off the first couple innings," Zito said after the game, "but it got better as the game went on."
The Giants began the scoring in the first inning when Buster Posey hit a beautiful sac-fly to right field, bringing home Melky Cabrera.
The DBacks responded right back in the bottom half of the inning when Gerardo Parra hit a bomb to center field with Paul Goldschmit on base, putting the snakes up 2-1.
Gregor Blanco lead off the second inning with a single to center, later scoring when Brandon Crawford singled to left field.
Zito helped himself out at the plate in the fourth, with Ryan Theriot on third base, when he executed a perfect squeeze bunt play that scored Theriot, knotting the game back up at three.
Both teams went scoreless till the last batter, when A.J. Pollock hit a game winning home run, giving the DBacks the win 4-3.
