Hello and happy Sunday one and all.
Tyler Anderson’s last start did not go well. The left-handed pitcher started on Thursday when the San Francisco Giants took on the Seattle Mariners, and failed to record an out in the third inning. He wasn’t pitching well, but was still in line to eat innings: instead, he got ejected, forcing the Giants to go to their bullpen early.
He gets a quick chance to make amends. With Johnny Cueto dealing with lingering hip soreness, Anderson will start Sunday’s finale against the Oakland A’s, just three days after his last, abbreviated start.
Cueto was scheduled to start, but will now pitch on Monday instead.
The Giants switched up their starters. Tyler Anderson is starting tomorrow, Johnny Cueto on Monday. Kapler says they wanted to give Cueto (hip) another day.— Mark W. Sanchez (@MarkWSanchez) September 19, 2020
Did Barry Bonds hit a home run today?
You know he did.
September 20, 1996: Against the Colorado Rockies, Bonds hit a solo home run in the 3rd inning off of Mark Thompson. It gave the Giants a 2-0 lead, and they would win 6-2. It was his 42nd homer of the year.
September 20, 2000: Against the Cincinnati Reds, Bonds hit a solo home run in the 5th inning off of Steve Parris. It gave the Giants a 4-0 lead, and they would win 4-2. It was his 48th homer of the year.
September 20, 2001: Against the Houston Astros, Bonds hit a 2-run home run in the 5th inning off of Wade Miller, scoring Rich Aurilia. It tied the game 4-4, but the Giants would lose 5-4. It was his 64th homer of the year.
September 20, 2005: Against the Washington Nationals, Bonds hit a solo home run in the 4th inning off of Livan Hernandez. It tied the game 1-1, and the Giants would win 4-3. It was his 3rd straight game with a homer, and his 3rd of the year.
I hope your Sunday is wonderful.
