pen. sem is out on deck for the athletics. with the pitcher due up next. did he swing? yes he did. and that is all for sam fuld. two down. home plate up pyre rayburn -- umpire rayburn made the call himself. >> mike: oh, yeah. easy call. >> jon: marcus simmen acquired by the athletics in the off season hitting .256, .301 on base percentage but 28 errors committed. ball one. giants saw him in spring training and his first at-bat in the spring, he hit a home run
against the giants and then the second at-bat he hit another one. i think he hit another one later in the spring, at the end of the spring against the giants. a check swing and a foul. one ball, one strike. >> mike: you have to believe that is exactly what he is trying to do with this at-bat. looking for some lightning down right here, down four runs. >> jon: well if he got ahold of one, he could make it a one-run game. and semien who is a bay area product out of cal. one strike. that one is in the dirt. two balls and a strike. en went to st. mary's high school over in berkeley graduating in 2008 and went to

>> reporter: welcome back to the giants game. it is time for the toyota by the numbers segment. and it is all about jersey numbers being sold. the best-selling jerseys for the first half of the season and three of the top ten best-selling belong to the giants with bumgarner leading the pack and posey in third and pence with the sixth best-selling jersey. the biggest blockbuster in theaters. it is the toyota summer blockbuster sales event. get blockbuster deals on every sale. go to toyota.com. gentlemen. >> mike: another stat that we didn't know. >> fernando abad comes on for oakland.
abad, who had just a fabulous year for the athletics last season, they picked him up from washington. and he was among the toughest left-handed relievered in the american league. a 1.57 e.r.a. but he has not had the same success this year. last year 57 1/3 innings, 34 hits allowed. he's come back to earth this year. 0-1 the count to blanco. >> he has good stuff. low to mid-90s. two types of movement, curveball slider and change-up. the stuff you see from a starting pitcher you'll see from abad. a good breaking ball and curveball and slider both. >> jon: strike two. abad has not been nearly as effective against lefties this year. lefties have hit .278 against him.
it is the righties he's done better against this year. who are hitting .162 versus abad. he has what is called a reverse split lefty-righty. arias is on deck for the pitcher. kontos up next. and nice pick there by lawrie and throwing out the fast-moving blanco. and he showed off a great arm there. >> mike: he's got a cannon no doubt. i think he's upset because he had a throwing error in the ball game. but nevertheless good at-bat from blanco. >> jon: arias pinch-hitter for george couldn't os and strickland runs down to the giants bull pen once again to start throwing.
hat-attitude. do you remember that. >> jon: i don't remember the night they gave those away, do you? >> i don't know if they did. >> the attitude fedoras? >> mike: it's working. >> jon:- 1-2 the count. and that is all for arias. two down. >> mike: and so you think that is the little piece they added right there. >> jon: it looks like some embroidery working. >> mike: they are rocking it right now. >> jon: we could start doing stuff like that on all of the long flights on the road trips, we could do some embroidery and really make many cool things. what do you think? >> mike: i mean it is a party here. party night, it opens up and everybody comes out and has their orange and black on. this place leads the league in
it. they have the fever. come on. >> jon: two down, pagan hitter. pagan has not been retired tonight. he's had three hits and walked. he's been on base four straight times. pagan during the three-game series here before the all-star break with the phillies in town, the phillies just could not get enough. he had seven hits just before the break. 1-2. that was 77 miles per hour, down and away. joe panik on deck.

guy. one type of four seam fastball and a slider at times that would get lazy. this time he's added to the fastball. he has a split-finger fastball that he throws. >> 98 miles per hour for a called strike two. there is vogt on deck. >> still has high velocity. and that is with both grips. a lot easier to throw at a higher velocity with a four seam than a two seam fastball but he can do both. put the flames on both grips. >> jon: 7-3, the giants leading, eighth inning 0-3 the count to canha. right by him at 98 miles per hour. >> mike: with cut. and i don't think you talk to yourself. that is a three pitch seamer right there. just four seam with little cut action that breaks down both elbows. that is a rough at-bat.
>> jon: and stephen vogt, who has an american league all-star team member. vogt is 0 for 3 in the game. belt -- strickland covering. two down. the series will continue tomorrow. 1:05. bumgarner is scheduled. and the athletics will go with the rookie bassitt. and then on sunday afternoon game, the former oakland
right-hander hudson against graveman. slider off the outside. one ball and no strikes. and mike krukow and duane kuiper will be back on comcast sportsnet bay area for tomorrow and for the games. 2-0. and we'll be back on nbc bay area on monday night with milwaukee in town. nbc bay area and the giants television network on monday night. ben zobrist has struck out twice and then hit home run in the seventh inning. right back to strickland. and that is a very powerful inning. seven pitches and out.
the giants -- athletics, bay area interleague match-up. and here is edward mujica, pitching for oakland. and those are his over all numbers this year. given up six home runs in the 27 1/3 innings. but he has pitched better since coming to the athletics. >> he can be a low 90s velocity. he is a kind of a fastball split guy, occasional sliders. >> jon: now heeka starts with the red sox and designated for assignment on may the 8th and the next day was traded to oakland for a player to be named later or cash.
that called a strike. we remember him from his days with the st. louis cardinals in the national league. he's had 16 career appearances as you see duffy on deck. 2-2. panik has popped out, hit a sacrifice fly and struck out and grounded out. so officially 0 for 3 with an rbi. they have had 14 hits in this game, scored all of the runs in the first five innings. canha out number one. and now duffy will come up. >> mike: one thing the giants have done this year i think, that is different than we've seen in previous years is they
are a good team coming out of an off day. they benefit from the off day. in previous years and previous years they come out from an off day and it took them one day to get warmed back up and find the rhythm. not so this year. >> jon: a cool shot right there with the coke bottle and the glove just behind buster. and that is a base hit for duffy. he's 2 for 5. and buster will come up. >> mike: he's 2 for 5 but he hit the ball hard four times tonight. and once again, buster posey gets to hit with a runner on. and one of the keys tonight was to set the table and the giants have really done a nice job of that. a's pitchers have been in the stretch a lot tonight.
they've been a lot of one-two-three innings tonight and that was in the seventh. >> jon: buflter had a -- buster had a sacrifice fly. he's knocked in one. 26 rbis in his last 21 games now. >> mike: big-time sink right there on that fastball. and they're both smiling. that's rare this late in a ball game. ice cream will do that to you though. make you happy. >> jon: that was very good. she's not happy, the team is doing poorly -- ice cream --
enjoy. >> it's working. deep, into the hands of posey. >> jon: let that be a lesson to us all, ice cream. >> you scream. >> jon: if things aren't going well, ice cream fix it. >> it has been working at my house for years. >> jon: 0-2 the count. 2-2. >> mike: i want to get that i want to get that, i want to get that. that is the best part, right there. i'm sorry. i would not be putting that down. it is just starting to get good.
>> jon: there goes the runner and right to the vacated shortstop hole. and matt duffy got obstructed by sogard, the third base umpire drake immediately pointing at sogard but duffy made it to third base any way. >> mike: it looks like sogard was putting it on deep and then he got in the way of the running path of duffy. the umpires were right on it. as you pointed out, the second base umpire and the third base umpire both pointing toward the obstruction. >> jon: and the idea on that play, that we've learned, is that if made a play on duffy, maybe they've thrown him out at third and with the obstruction, they would have ruled it just awarded third base. first ball swinging and pence pops it up and billy butler catches that one half kay down-- way
down the line. so pence who had a four hit game going is out on one pitch here. two down. and brbd brandon belt -- belt he's 1 for 4. now with 16 hits. posey has three of them. pagan has three. pence has four. a couple of hits for matt duffy. that is out of play. i think we were talking about the giants coming back after an off day but coming home from a road trip where they hit well how many times have they come home from the road trip and not hit well. so tonight, immediately just picked right up where they left off on the road trip.
>> mike: 16-hit night. this is definitely a different team than they were three weeks ago, i think just in confidence. i think hunter pence had everything to do with it. got everybody in the line relaxed and got deeper. he did something remarkable. when he came off the disabled list, he did not go down and rehab, he just went right into the lineup and he has been the best -- >> jon: there goes posey from first base. and 1-2 belt. >> it is a 7-3 game. that is a good play. put yourself in scoring position, managers like to go into the ninth inning with a five-run lead so run swing of the bat can't tie the score. not going to hold on to make it. >> jon: with the over shift on
for belt. so it would still be 7-1. the giants had a 7-1 lead in the seventh, then he would not go. >> no he would not go. >> jon: duffy at third posey at second. posey got credit for a steal. belt still alive. one ball two strikes. >> mike: and they did their signs. strap on the orange and black and head out to the yard. that is a good friday right there. >> jon: all they do is win.
1-2 the count. right through the defense there. and that is a two-run single for brandon belt duffy and posey both score, 9-3 giants. and a three rbi night for brandon belt. 0-1 to crawford. crawford has had one hit and four at-bats and a one scored. the giants just before the break had the three-game series with the phillies.
scores 27 runs in the three games on 49 hits and they've had nine runs and 17 hits tonight. which is just about the average night that they had against the phillies in that three-game series. of course, they had 15 runs and 22 hits in one game against the phillies. two weeks ago tonight in fact. >> back in the jart of june -- start of june, they could not get it going offensively here. but now not a problem. >> giants get two runs and have a 9-3 lead as we head to the ninth inning. vogelsong up in the giants bull pen.
>> jon: on to the ninth inning. strickland still in there for the giants leading 9-3. trying to get the ninth win in the last ten games. and they have the bull pen getting ready if needed. the right-hander vogelsong and the left hander lopez. and butler is leading off, 2 for 3 in the game and two singles.
reddick and then brett lowrie to follow. three runs and seven hits and one error for oakland. a beauty. at 97 miles per hour it is 0-1. >> throwing the ball great today. really spotting that fastball well. >> jon: in the eighth inning had seven pitches on strickland. slierld along the right field line and could be trouble and drops in. base hit. strickland hustled over to first base to cover the bag as butler took a big turn around first base. so it is a bloop single for billy butler his third hit of the night and bruce bochy is coming out with the left-handed hitting reddick coming up and he'll bring in the left-hander javier lopez to face him.
and the hit total that grabs your eye. >> mike: i think he reinvented himself this year in spring training. starting throwing around some other pitches and brought a change-up back he had early in his career and it made the difference and he's having fun. never been better. >> jon: that is a foul ball. reddick, singled and fouled out to the watcher and lined out to center, 1 for 3. he has been tough on lefties and righties this year. against lefties, you expect him to be strong and he's never been better. leftings hitting .118, the righties hitting only .161. 2-1 now.
there is brett lawrie on deck. and there is the two extra runs in the eighth inning and now a 9-3 lead. joe panik in time to get reddick who is hustling up the line. and butler moves to second. so lopez got the left-handed hitter and now bochy will bring in brian vogelsong here with the right-handed hitter lawrie coming up. we have another pitching change. vogelsong coming in runner at second.
now that there's foster farms simply raised, it's tougher than ever to be a foster farms chicken. but foster farms simply raised chicken is 100 percent natural with no antibiotics. well you're an herbalist. help us to be natural. will those herbs do it? those? one grows hair, the other increases energy. gasp! do i look natural herb man? can i call you herb man? i'm trying to look natural. call me natural. you look like a steve. can i call you steve? hi steve. i'm natural. say something. why aren't you guys saying anything? introducing new simply raised chicken with no antibiotics. from foster farms. simply better.
>> jon: 9-3 giants. vogelsong on relief with lawrie a right-handed hitter coming up. >> the numbers for vogelsong, fifth time out of the bull pen. he made 16 starts [ inaudible ]. his fastball has been really connistent to the -- consistent to the corners a curveball and a change-up. he's in the groove. >> jon: 0-1.
>> mike: well not a lot of boat but that is all you need, i guess guess. as long as you have a cooler. >> jon: it has pedals. duffy -- toying with the idea of going after billy butler to tag him out but threw out lawrie. two down. buttler now at third. eric sogard will come up. brian vogelsong pitching out of the bull pen, he went two scoreless innings in relief on monday night in san diego in a loss for the giants. he was the tenth pitcher in the start of the road trip.
first game out of the road trip, the giants will extra innings that ended up using ten pitchers and vogelsong went the last two innings and got the win in that one. one ball and no strikes to sogard. and has a narrow zone. >> i think that rayburn, he has some zones. some nights you have some big zones and some small zones. if you know at the beginning, you don't have a problem with it. there haven't been many comments from either bench and not a whole lot of rubbernecking going on there at the plate and the pitchers haven't gotten a lot of stank eye on him. from nrn um -- from an umpire's perspective, you get no stank eye, that is a good night. >> jon: that is just foul. and it wasn't foul by very much.
hit very hard by sogard. 2-2 the count. all right how foul was it? a couple of feet. 2-2 the count. those who are still here rise. strike three called! and that ends it. the giants win, the ninth win in the last ten games, and they remain three games out of the first in the national league west. and a strong night for jake peavy for the fourth time in a row, peavy looking strong. >> mike: he was strong tonight. at one point he had 12 retired
in a row but i think what he did early in the game establishing the low part of the zone really set his night up and he has to feel good about it. and the offense is clicking. the 17 hit, nine run night. >> for more tune into christmas sportsnet and tune into bay area tomorrow afternoon at 12:30 for the giants pregame live before game two of the series. bumgarner is on the mound for the giants. we'll be back with you on monday night for the giants and the brewers. for mike krukow and amy g. thanks for tuning in. we hope you enjoy the telecast. and now from san francisco, we say good night, the giants beating the a's.
