Domination Redux: Giants Pound Rockies into Powder

Even with the Panda resting his paunch on Wed 10 April, AT&T Park was positively pulsating with the prospects of the young season’s first sweep.

The San Francisco Giants sent the Colorado Rockies packing with perceivable pouts on their collective pusses. The Rox entered San Francisco with an impressive winning streak. Now they are leaving in a tailspin with three consecutive losses tacked onto their record.

The Giants put the nail in the coffin for the Rockies’ first series of 2013 in San Francisco. There was still plenty of Killer P-ishness remaining. Posey finally came alive to kill the possibilities that Colorado might depart the picturesque place with a W. He was one short of the cycle as he pilloried the Colorado pitching. And that is sweet for Giants fans.

San Francisco simply pounded the Rockies to a pulp. And that’s no fiction. The seemingly rejuvenated Barry Zito again prevailed in his march to pitching immortality, such as it is. The resurgent lefty not only secured his second win of the season with seven shutout innings, Number 75 is also batting his number with an impressive .750 average.

Zito is suddenly a force at the plate, with two hits, an RBI and two runs scored. He is becoming the fierce competitor that the team had hoped it signed back in the day when pitching prospects were more pedestrian.

The Giants have positioned themselves well in the defense of their World Series Championship. It starts with divisional success, and for San Francisco, there's no team like Colorado to put their fortunes into a positive perspective.
