As we slowly put Giants Baseball Corner together, the Giants are in chilly Milwaukee to play the Brewers tonight with Barry Zito on the mound.
Hank Schulman tweeted today that :
If Zito starts with 3 shutout innings, he will be only the third Giant since 1900 to open a season with 17 shutout innings in a row (Worthington ’53, McCormick ’61).
and the Giants pointed out on twitter that the club record for starting pitcher’s win streak is Carl Hubbell, 22-consecutive regular season starts from 1936-37. Zito has 13 – and 16 if you include the post-season of last year.
GBC has urgently needed a better About page, so this is for that:
an introduction to the site
Will probably upload a new post after the game tonight with video.
We’re just fans listening to the Giants on the radio in a little corner in our house.
