What We Learned: Instinct leads to second straight loss

Yesterday's Results

Giants 2, Brewers 1

The second game of the season went better than the first, but the result wasn't different. Jimmy Nelson had a strong first start, pitching 7 1/3 innings and allowing two runs. However, the offense couldn't respond to help Nelson. They managed to get a run on a double-play, but only managed six hits beyond that. After the game, the Brewers announced they had acquired LHP Sam Freeman from the Rangers for cash and designated Ariel Pena for assignment.
