Jimmy Rollins welcomed Madison Bumgarner to the ballgame by blooping a single to right field on the first pitch. After Placido Polanco and Chase Utley flied out, Ryan Howard laced a double to left center that took a Giants-friendly bounce off the wall right to Andres Torres. Sam Perlozzo was forced to hold Rollins at third base. An intentional walk to Jayson Werth loaded the bases for Shane Victorino, batting right-handed off the young lefty. Shane watched a ball go by then took a terrible swing on a low fastball that went right back to the pitcher. Another opportunity lost, and we’re still tied after five.
Oswalt back on the mound for the sixth. I’d love a quick inning.
