Giants-Indians Live Blog: Ishikawa is 3-for-3 with Two HRs

D WizzleSenior Analyst IFebruary 25, 2009

 The Giants lead 1-0 as Travis Ishikawa hit a single off Jeremy Sowers of the Indians in the first inning.

Tim Lincecum is starting for the Giants.

Aaron Rowand struck out with two runners on base to end the first inning. Some things never change. Rowand does not hit well with runners in scoring position.

Bengie Molina was at bat with two runners on base and one out and he did not bring in any runs. A lot of baseball people say that Molina is the best player to bat in that situation.

Lincecum just got out of the first inning, giving up no runs and one hit.

Keiichi Yabu is now pitching for the Giants in the second inning.

We are now in the top of the third inning. Zach Jackson is now pitching for the Indians. He was 2-3 with a 5.55 ERA last season.

Yabu just gave up a three-run homer to Mark DeRosa. It was on a full count.

Indians lead 3-1 as we head to the fourth inning.

Ishikawa hit a home run and it is now 3-2 Indians.  Ishikawa is learning to hit lefties. He is now 2-2 against two lefties.

Giants tie the game 3-3 with a RBI groundout. 

Giants now lead 5-3 as Ishikawa hit another homer. It was a two-run shot this time to right field.

We are now in the bottom of the sixth inning with the Giants leading 7-3. I don't know how the Giants scored their last two runs, but I will find out for you guys.

Luis Perdomo is now pitching for the Giants. I have no idea who he is except that he is a lean right-hander.

It is now 7-4 in the top of the eighth inning.

Alex Hinshaw gave up a homer to Stephen Head.

Vinnie Chulk, the former Giants pitcher, is now pitching for the Indians. He just gave up a base hit and it is now 8-4 Giants. There are two runners in scoring position.

It is now 10-4 Giants.

All the rookies and minor leaguers are now in the game.
