Gregor Blanco clubs homer, Giants up 3-1

This is normally a good spot to make a joke at the Giants' expense. Gregor Blanco hit a two-run home run off Mike Leake in the top of the second inning, giving the Giants a 3-1 lead:


So it'd be a perfect time to suggest they haven't been doing this before because they didn't want to climb the fence and get the ball back from Mr. McGurt's yard.

Because they thought those were the rules and ... never mind.

Point being, the Giants weren't doing any hitting in the first three games of this series, but they are so far in Game 4.

Except that'd be a joke that paid to much attention to the small sample of a short series. Throughout the regular season, the Giants were actually the second-best in baseball at scoring runs on the road. They were just below the league-average in home runs on the road, but they were dead last in homers at AT&T Park with 31, just 107 behind the Yankees.

The Giants can score on the road. One of their problems is the other teams have been able to score on the road against them, too. So with Barry Zito on the mound and looking shaky, this could be one of those games.
