Nori Aoki, Joe Panik deliver back-to-back first-inning homers for Giants


by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer
(5/3/2015) Nori Aoki and Joe Panik delivered back-to-back home runs in the first inning Sunday in the Giants' victory over Jered Weaver and the Angels.

Neither Aoki and Panik had homered this season before hitting their back-to-back blasts.

"For Nori to hit a home run, OK," Panik said. "For me to hit a home run, OK. But for us to do it back-to-back like that, I don't think the oddsmakers would have pretty good odds on that one. Nori did a great job obviously, setting the tone."

"Everyone looked surprised," Aoki said of his teammates' reaction.


Giants' Brandon Belt, Joe Panik return to lineup Saturday vs. LAA


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(5/2/2015) The Giants returned second baseman Joe Panik and first baseman Brandon Belt to the starting lineup on Saturday against the Angels. Both players received a day off on Friday.

Panik, who was the walk-off hero in the Giants' win Friday night, was back playing second base and batting second. Panik has been alternating starts with Matt Duffy over the past week.

Belt returned to first base and was batting sixth for manager Bruce Bochy on Saturday. Belt has been hitting well lately, batting .385 over his last 10 games. Although, the team is hoping he finds his power swing, as he has yet to hit a home run this year and has just five RBI.


Giants, Joe Panik walk off in ninth inning victory Friday


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(5/2/2015) Friday's game against the Angels started out as a rest day for Giants second baseman Joe Panik. But Panik wound up being the hero for the reigning World Series champs on Friday night.

Panik came into the game as a pinch-hitter in the bottom of the ninth inning, with the bases loaded and two outs. And on the third pitch of the at-bat from reliever Joe Smith, Panik laced a game-winning single into center field to give the Giants the 3-2 victory

"I knew the pressure was on the pitcher," Panik said, per MLB.com, "because with the bases loaded, he had to put the ball over the plate. I knew I was going to get a pitch I could handle."

Panik has been seeing the ball well lately, hitting .296 (8 for 27) with two double and four RBI over his last 10 games.

Panik, who also drove in a run on a groundout in the second inning, reached base in the seventh on a one-out single, and after the bases were loaded by another single and a walk, he dashed 90 feet on a ball that got by the catcher to put the Giants up for good. The pitcher then uncorked another wild pitch while trying to intentionally walk the man at the plate, and the new lead runner was gunned down trying to extend the lead.
