What’s up sports fans? Aubrey Huff managed to get his gear in place before his game against the St. Louis Cardinals and didn’t wonder what the game was going to be like. His wife was celebrating her birthday and she told him to hit a homerun for her. He did, and he just didn’t stop there. Mr. Huff decided he’d add another pair and hit three homeruns, six RBI’s, and the Giants beat the St. Louis Cardinals 12-7 in Missouri and gain a half game up on the Diamondbacks in the National League West division. Before this game Aubrey Huff was hitting 219 batting average. You can probably guess his average went up, because on this day Aubrey Huff made Giants fans, players and Manager Bruce B0chy very happy he was on their team.

“It’s a tremendous day,” manager Bruce Bochy said. “I don’t think it’s any coincidence that he’s getting it going and we’re getting going. It’s a day he’ll never forget and a big day for us.”  It’s also a day none of us will forget either. With this win the Giants are continuing to keep pressure on the division and basically keeping their hat in the fray for contention of the National League West title. St. Louis had decent pitching in the beginning of  the game, but came up short in the sixth when Tripple A call up Lance Lynn was able to strike out only one of four Giants batters. Albert Pujols had a steal, two hits and scored twice, and St. Louis got good production from Colby Rasmus who had a grand slam his second of his career and six RBI’s. But in the end it was too much Aubrey Huff. ” When Huffie gets going, he can carry the team. He did it last year He’s getting that confidence back and his swing is back.”

Freddy Sanchez called it correct. It happens to a lot of players that deal with the long season. MLB baseball players play over a hundred games, and sometimes they can have a bad month and they have to keep competing to pull themselves out of a slump. That’s what Aubrey Huff did. He kept his competitive composure and came up big.  The run in the sixth came when Colby Rasmus overplayed a lead-off double by pitcher Jonathan Sanchez. He drifted to the left when he should’ve went rightt and the ball went into the gap and bounced into the stands. “I kind of gave up on it there a little bit,” Rasmus said. “I ain’t going to blame it on anything, I just missed the play.” The play allowed the Giants to get on base and the rest is just good Giants baseball.

The Giants eventually won 12-7 and even though a lot of people were saying after the World Series that the Giants winning it all was a fluke, the way they are playing the league is starting to take notice of the fact that beating the Giants regardless of whether or not they’re in contention for the playoffs, is still pretty hard to do. “Our numbers were so low it was a matter of time before these guys would get it going,” Bochy said. “We’re getting more consistent quality ABs, and I’m a firm believer that the more opportunities you create, the more times you’re going to score.” What’s also interesting is that this is at a time when two of their best hitters Pablo Sandoval, and Buster Posey are out injured, and the Giants continue to find a way to stay competitive. Think they got what it takes to stay competitive or not? Tell me what you think. Remember folks it’s ALLBAYAREASPORTS.COM Bay Area Sports Magnified!
