Giants 2013 -- September 29, 2013

The Giants defeated the Padres today in a game with a wild finish, to secure third place in the National League West.  The Giants finished with a record of 76 and 86.  Barry Zito pitched to one batter, in what was probably his last appearance as a Giant, and perhaps the last in his career.  The Giants signed Hunter Pence, but have not yet signed Tim Lincecum. 

It was an interesting season.  There were a lot of injuries.  The one to Angel Pagan especially hurt the team.  They have played much better since he returned.  Tim Lincecum threw a no-hitter and Yusmeiro Petit almost threw a perfect game. 

I took the photo on 01-July-2007. It shows Tim Lincecum on the mound, with second baseman Ray Durham and first baseman Ryan Klesko.
