In San Francisco they call him the baby giraffe. If he keeps producing fans may have to take away the baby part.
Brandon Belt hit his first career triple last night in the Giants 2-1 victory over the San Diego Padres. A few batters later he even scored a run when pitcher Tim Lincecum slapped a single to right field.
Overall Belt was 2 for 3 on the night, raising his batting average to .243 on the year. The former Hudson Hornet continues to show his versatility in being able to change positions. Last night Belt played left field and hit 6th in the lineup.
Tonight the Giants take on the Houston Astros in San Francisco. First pitch is at 9:15 central time.
