4.14: KNBR Giants Postgame Wrap
Jon Miller, Duane Kuiper, Mike Krukow and Dave Flemming break down the win.
Or bacteria samples came -- time. Jonathan Sanchez today was pretty fun to watch what well that's the thing about Jon since his mean. Unity there times you're you're you're gonna be impatient with his growth. You shake your head sales he can only as good in the strike zone. And he's -- -- but on days like today when he goes out there he makes -- them very hard look very easy. You're just glad he's here is get attention for months. And he was awesome today and you -- -- policy to -- put another on the -- -- When they got him four runs he came at the next inning and he was relaxed man. And he took that nice slow easy rhythm and took it all the with -- punched out eleven. That's an awesome pitching performance against this team because any team in the big leagues. And what -- touched on is absolutely true he's never. Consistently put it together where start after start for an extended period time you see this guy out there. But when that's your fourth starter and -- guys would love to see that right they wanna see today who could dominate time minute timeout maybe maybe that'll -- -- this year but it. But that's your fourth guy. You can take a little inconsistency you get performances like that. And his delivery is so it is something that's always going to be a bit of an obstacle he's a long harbor. He's got long arms discuss this again in the reward short arms both on the mound both with the with the bat. So because you can repeat the stroke easily with a short -- Nelson give a guy. It was a long armored and it's at times he won't be able to find that stroke that that good slot -- -- up his pitches and did good push and drive. But when he does who was -- fun to watch. -- think this is about Sanchez at all. You don't do is about real putt putt putt putt but I think seriously about he had an inside the park home run. He tried it the other uniter he came to wary of thinking about it by the -- he's not getting little run here. And the bleachers yeah. He's gonna have like twelve inside the park and -- that I see him have a twelve inside the park homers maybe fifteen triples it's going to be great at all here at home. That's got hurt them and he's gonna weigh a 120 pounds in September that at that it that it that it puts that was qualities. And he's he I mean he's crank him and he once again when the moves which is so bad. He will but. Does that happen today. That that the next when he hit today what do you want to deep center fielder was caught -- what looked like he'd just sort of set I -- I just couldn't stop -- -- you know after a while the second that. Funny to him in India it's going to be like ticked off would give the other in the community groups of one. -- we saw today. This court this is a good. This is a fine place to hit the AT&T park to be a good place to hit it's a tough place to hit home runs if you left handed. Two other home runs from right handers it got out and got out nicely in the Jenks had a great homestand swinging the bats he scored a lot of runs they have a lot of offense here. But for Aubrey Huff in particular -- it will be a challenge to get it over. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- You've been hit that to the gap here. Those years thirty feet beyond the wall and at Camden yards and -- there's a -- a picture -- And close. And Harry can quite. Get it within ten feet to the capital all spoke. But it's -- -- to -- him questionable like that anyway yet he's the Baltimore its three homered. The problem as you can't start counting those balls that don't go can have -- but I should have 24 -- force before and only have four. -- not like he hit a triple and a dollar inside the park home run double. Is is a bad day and that's helping the Giants offense and then and your point I think is he's a cleanup guy but it go on out over the fence or whether they're splitting gaps. -- -- he's hit with some pop some power some extra base -- That's a good thing for the Jets and and we see a lot left handed hitters here who their best balls were going out there and get caught. He's hit the ball with a 421 societies that off that is the twenty foot high wall exiting the archway. He's crushing balls out there and it is it's he's in his extra base so. -- some muscles. I think this he's gonna have Goodyear keeps don't have in the he may. Number home runs he was open for the numbers look pretty good. Story of the day for you that is. It hasn't been inside the park -- and Ichiro you know at the easiest inside the park home run. Remember since this Wednesday that they they make a throw to home plate. And Barry hit that is -- -- -- candlestick against the Braves in a day game right down the left field line where Klesko made the dive for it. Slid in and he missed the ball and cracked his head against the side wall behind the bullpen accounts that. At a -- was being passed out or just. -- that I cannot get enough. I'm too tired of the offensive that is just like the very and the ball rolled about a popular nobody's Jason just that the thought and hit my cobra for. And he might walk the last night he picked. Up. Aubrey Huff is excited to learn and it is great play great day. We'll talk more confidence. Ten seconds. Stanback is. -- Are right here we are Mike is just kitchen to make a pick here I and to make it your eyesight. Grab him Eli Whiteside what a day Eli is probably best days ever had. I mean hit the Grand Slam last year in Houston which wasn't deem decider. But here he goes out there and throws. Eight or catches it zeroes on the board to compliment what nine if you take. Brian Wilson's I think I'm -- Catches the showdown it's a three run homer in the second inning. Adds a double atop that I mean it's a great day that's a great deal for guys that the plays once a week. And intensity river for a long time. And if you talk to him about. About his day today. He's gonna enjoy the moment of giving up the first thing you talked about here. And the thing I like about what's -- and talks that regard and sincere. The team may god let's see a big day. I guarantee you it was a hard decision for Bruce coach you put have been there. It veggies get dot net -- reached base nine straight times and even a day game after thanking me get tomorrow off. I guarantee you it was hard for him to take -- out of line as well as he's been swinging the bat but it. Makes him look. Real good. -- what you did say before the game he said. And second guess myself big time of is he's only. Think 23 days and get them get every president's elected is the time off he's had has contributed to his his hot bat I wanna see that -- stay hot for -- And up -- -- two days off going and LA. And then Whiteside made it to end -- irrelevant and he looked. Molina like out there today so with a back to pick Eli Whiteside and have been excellent might very thank you very little -- that at the John. Right what I've gone with. And Aubrey Huff and the inside the park home run and it will questionable on kept. You don't wanna get a home run a credit on the right field line that wanna get over the Willie Mays -- he wants again on over the 421 signs so. The key I like that he's -- it it's it's not fun I guess if he hits it over the three on nine marker he wants it went over the 420 sense of humor. Andy getting that one in. The last time we saw one with that kind of about who was Ichiro in the all star game. And that maybe the only other time we've had when that had that crazy of bounds. And it was almost like the gone over -- problems within three days it. Ten balls after the fourth when he wants and so they had him to catch funny hop when he got the inside the moments -- anyway Aubrey Huff and any -- is looking pretty good at first base although that was that was at one ball last night and understand what was going on. But that was -- got the inside the park home run descend on every mention that again. Other than this one time -- have never again after now. Our products that kept a good. Thank you wanna go. Yeah I'll take Aaron Rowand that -- We dig the long ball and he would -- object and Aaron Rowand -- first of the year you know it's it's easy to forget now. But he started zero for ten didn't reach base one time. Hit a ground ball to shortstop and did knoller was semi Erin the first two days look completely Cadillac and Allen is past. History now plus the other some weird Bulls and up to him today early in the -- -- that he we hung in there with them. Aaron Rowand well well well in -- and a good job and politics interests. But since. -- -- Djokovic and on opening day where he didn't have any tennis sharpness that nearly likely yet today. And it it's its opening day in this ballpark and he's get the adrenaline pump and admit when his biggest start ever and I thought even then. He showed some signs that he's a different guy now that he used to be kind of held it together held the Giants in the game the jackets won but this is they get a note that they can get. And and it's -- in some ways this was almost as dominant as his no hitter -- -- today they just didn't hit balls hard against him he walked three guys but he was in total command. All the way from the start of it and maybe that one shaky moment in the first inning I thought he was fined ten. And he thought he can win nothing you'll see with young pitchers. The standings would determine what other conference going into -- start if their face and partners team like last year that weren't very good team they feel like. They can be that team you know it's when they cross that threshold and they get that same type of confidence when the face the Philadelphia Phillies -- the Atlanta Braves for the Dodgers. And it's it's just a time it's a process of time he also somehow he relaxed city when he got runs scored. -- like the pressure was off in the -- the scoreboard. -- simply determine how he pitches each individual hitter how throws every pitch. It won't matter if it's for nothing or down for nothing. Up four up and down -- it -- matter that's how you evolve as a professional and he's getting there. Today it was a great start yeah it you know I mean in in. -- -- -- -- -- a great job with them to begin with just to maintain that type of conference against some of the better teams when that happens in this like barn -- -- So we'll see Tisdale go against the Padres next but then I think is next two starts after that I think you catch the Cardinals and then. Then maybe even catch the the Phillies there. This series -- so basically. We he'll get a nice test there these two really good teams if not the Phillies and the Colorado rock music and and a problem for job -- Problem that's probably inaudible I don't see what's on tap sponsored by -- classics jackets get off day. Enjoy the night in the city travel tomorrow to LA Dodgers play twice between now and the first game of the Giants Dodgers series. Tonight and tomorrow night against Diamondbacks -- can watch him play. Get ready to go and Todd Wellemeyer against Vicente Padilla Giants Dodgers 2010. Starts on Friday. I think they renew the way it. Renew the hostility yes that's the word for hostilities. Dating back. In two medieval times I think at -- at -- of bribery began many hundreds of years ago. And still. Bitter. They don't the -- that things that'll keep children. And that. And I sort of over on the TV so it's not just on the field. I can't wait to smoke Charley Steiner when I see him as a broadcaster guests. Sucker punch right teeth and he got all excited about a Manny home run the other day. I'd like to -- last him we put up up up up up up but but yeah they defy you to see targets for described it legal -- even. Friday night what's on tap sponsored by tap plastics a fantastic plastic place all the way up at tapped plastics dot com.
