Matt Moore failed his audition for the River Cats starting rotation, pitching very well last night and winning for the first time as a Giant since… I can’t remember. He pitched 7 strong innings allowing only 3 runs with a strong fastball. The seven game losing streak is over. The Braves played keystone cops defense but make no mistake, Austin Slater hit a huge three run homer to put the Giants up 3-2 in the top of the 8th in what was a close and tense game at the time.
Brandon Belt added a moonshot in the top of the ninth and Mark Melancon pitched a clean inning for a bounce-back save.
The Giants won one in a row, perhaps the first victory in a 22 game winning streak?
