Ray Durham stranded 8 baserunners, after the D’backs intentionally walked Bonds three times, leaving the tying run in scoring position in the ninth, on the way to a streak-breaking 3-2 loss. Zito pitched well enough to win, but the Giants were 0 for 10 with runners on. ‘Nuff said.
The streak was nice, but we still need a hitter. I’m not sure who he is, or where he’d play; but we need someone who can actually hit home runs behind Bonds. They’ll still walk him, that’s not the point. The point is that we have no one but Bonds who can go yard. You can’t sustain winning baseball scoring the fewest runs in the league.
