Doug Fister strands the bases loaded to keep Game 2 scoreless

The Giants had a scoring chance go by the wayside in the bottom of the second inning.

Buster Posey singled off Doug Fister to begin the inning before Hunter Pence flew out to center field and Brandon Belt struck out swinging. However, Gregor Blanco followed with a line drive up the middle which deflected off Fister’s head and fell for a single. Fister threw a few warm-up pitches and managed to convince all involved that he was OK to stay in. Pretty scary given what happened with Brandon McCarthy this year, but there you go.

When play continued, Fister walked Brandon Crawford to load the bases. However, he managed to get opposing pitcher Madison Bumgarner to pop out to left-center to avoid any damage.

Bumgarner has struck out five over three scoreless innings thus far, so we’re scoreless going into the bottom of the third in Game 2.
