Jonathan Sanchez earns my POTW. The left-hander made the most of a spot start.
After Randy Johnson went on the shelf for a start, Sanchez made his first start since being sent to the bullpen four weeks ago. Sanchez responded in grand fashion tossing a no-hitter as the Giants downed the Padres 8-0.
Sanchez’s no-hitter was the first no-no by a Giant since John ‘The Count’ Montefusco turned the trick against the Braves, September 29 1976. The no-hitter also was the first in the Giants’ 10-year old home by the Bay. What is the name of that place now?
Who gets your POTW?
