The Big Sadowski is Human After All

Giants rookie pitcher Ryan Sadowski did the unthinkable Wednesday afternoon.  He finally gave up a run in the Big Leagues.  Sadowski's streak of 16 scoreless innings to start his career ended when he surrendered a run in the fourth inning.  The scoreless streak is the longest for a Giants pitcher to start his career since Al Worthington threw 19 innings in 1953.

Sadowski finished the day giving up two runs total, in five innings of work, while suffering his first loss.  The reason the Marlins escaped the Bay Area with a 7-0 win was their starter Chris Volstad.  Volstad allowed just five hits while recording his first career shutout. 

The game was relatively close into the ninth inning, when Marlins second baseman Dan Uggla ended any drama by blasting a three run homer run to cap the scoring.  Despite the loss, once again the Giants won the series against Florida.  Next up on the schedule is the San Diego Padres.  They begin a four game series Thursday night at AT&T Park.  Tim Lincecum will look to build on his 23 game scoreless streak when he takes the mound.
