Road of giant begins to rotate

Hunter Pence sat peacefully in front of his locker at Busch Stadium, located in the same corner of the clubhouse where Pence stood after Game 5 of the NLCS last fall and explained why he had given another speech ahead of another huge road win for the Giants.San Francisco Giants Jersey

A season after going 46-35 on the road in the regular season and winning six of eight postseason games away from AT&T Park, the Giants are just 10-17 when they bat first.The majority of the damage has been done against the starters, three of whom — Ryan Vogelsong (6. 75 road ERA), Cain (6. 27) and Tim Lincecum (5. 67) — rank among the bottom nine in ERA for National League pitchers who have pitched at least 20 road innings.Orlando Cepeda Jersey Barry Zito (10. 19) would be the worst of that group if he qualified, but in four road starts he has managed just 17?2/3 innings.Madison Bumgarner Jersey

Matt Cain and Madison Bumgarner were both hurt by big innings over the weekend, contributing to the Giants’ 5. 21 road ERA, which ranks 29th out of 30 teams.Matt Williams Jersey
