Barry Zito to get the Game 5 start for the Giants

Madison Bumgarner‘s Game 1 egg-laying has led to Bruce Bochy naming Barry Zito his Game 5 starter in the NLCS. Bochy said “I think we feel it’s time to get Madison a little break.”

Makes sense, but Zito is gonna have to do a lot better than he did against the Reds in the NLDS, where he gave up two runs on four hits while walking four and didn’t make it out of the third inning.

    Somehow the Giants are 13-0 in Barry Zito starts since the start of August. Don’t ask me how, they just are. So were just going to roll with it ok.

      He’s exceptional…as in the exception that proves the rule.

      It seems that the Braves had a similar streak going with Kris Medlen. How did that work out for them?

      I don’t blame you one bit 510. If I were you…I would roll with it too.
