ARLINGTON, Texas -- San Francisco Giants designated hitter Aubrey Huff pummeled the first pitch he saw from Tommy Hunter, driving it high and deep into the right-field bleachers for a 2-0 lead in third third inning.
Andres Torres led off the third with a double that hit the first base bag and sped down the line.
Hunter has thrown 72 pitches through three innings. He's been unable to put batters away with two strikes as Giants hitters have done a good job fouling pitches off and driving up his pitch count. As the bottom of the third begins, the Rangers' bullpen is quiet.
Huff started high school in Mineral Wells, Texas, and played his last two years at Brewer High School in Fort Worth.
