Greek Giant

Taking a page out of the Hunter Pence “bail and wail” hitting book, Ty Blach hit a mammoth homer – a three-run blast, his first in the Major Leagues, and pitched the Giants to a groovy 11-2 win over the Athletics. The victory gave the Giants a split in the Bay Bridge Series.

Jarrett Parker had three knocks and Brandon Belt went deep as well.

Ty Blach is a strong man. His homer even got a smile, or maybe a smirk, from Bruce Bochy.

Ryder Jones also had two hits and scored two runs.

At least for one game, the young blood proved to be an infusion of power, speed, and offense for the Giants.
