SJ Giants to host 1st game of CAL playoffs on Saturday


A late reminder to those of you that haven't had your fill of Giants minor league ball this summer.  The SJ Giants will be hosting the 1st game of a best of 5 game playoff series at Municipal Stadium against the Modesto Nuts tomorrow (Saturday) at 6:00.  They will also be hosting the 2nd game on Sunday at 5:00 and the 5th game (if necessary) next Wednesday at 7:00. 

The Giants had the 2nd best record in the league in the 1st half of the season, but stumbled to the 2nd worst record in the 2nd half due to the promotions of Brandon Belt and Craig Westcott, and the season-ending hip injury to Eric Surkamp.  In glancing at the current roster, it looks like the Giants have blostered their bullpen for the playoffs by calling up Jose Casilla and Hector Correa from their Augusta affiliate.  The Giants will also have AA shortstop Brandon Crawford active for the series, although with Ehire Adrianza already on the team I'm guessing that Crawford will probably start at 3B.

Also, all the regular season games were broadcast over the net, so if they continue the proctice in the postseason then out-of-town fans should be able to listen to the games on their computer by following this link:
