SF Giants Win First Game in Series Against LA Dodgers

The San Francisco Giants did what they needed to on Friday to beat the LA Dodgers. They scored early and then added more runs. The Giants know they have their hands full with this talented Dodger lineup and Madison Bumgarner performed like he has all year to keep the LA bats in check. The SF offense fired on all cylinders putting men on base with frequency and with timely hits pushing in nine runs to run away with game one. Tonight at 6:05pm PST, Tim Hudson takes the mound.

Portland, Oregon is a Beautiful City

I traveled to Portland, Oregon to check out the city. Portland has gained in reputation as a great place to be with a well planned downtown. Great housing options with numerous transportation options including being bicycle friendly makes Portland a destination place. I was amazed by the number of lofts and high rise apartments already in place or under construction. Portland is positioning itself to be a friendly place for baby boomers readying for retirement.

The San Francisco Giants hung on for a 5-4 win against the very tough Detroit Tigers. On Sunday the Giants go for the Sweep and regardless of the outcome leave Detroit with a series win. This is huge for the Giants.

Great job by the whole team from the top to the bottom of the lineup. Go Giants!!!


San Francisco Giants getting Hot!

This San Francisco Giants fan wants to forget June and July and the Giants are helping. The team that struggled big time during the early part of summer are playing like they did in May. Pitching has improved and timely hits have become common. Keep it going guys!
