It wasn’t an easy victory since he threw
other over 120 pitches, but thankfully he can finally rejoice in finally getting enough run support from the team. Zito has been a mess since he signed, at the time, the largest pitching contract in baseball history (seven years $126 million). Hopefully, 2009 might be a much better year.
In his last four starts, Zito has a 1.37 ERA with a 16/6 K/BB ratio after beginning the season 0-2 with a 10.00 ERA. Maybe he won’t be the weak link (Randy Johnson might be) in an otherwise awesome San Francisco Giants starting rotation.
