Weekend: Lilly, Rhyne Hughes step up
On Friday night, rookie Jaime Garcia represented himself well against yet another Cy Young-level pitcher -- he faced Johan Santana in his previous start and Brewers ace Yovani Gallardo before that -- allowing two earned runs in six innings in a loss. On Saturday, Barry Zito continued his re-emergence with eight shutout innings, and 10 strikeouts, and former teammate Brad Penny -- he was a Giant for six good starts in 2009 -- didn't allow a run in 7 2/3 innings. Both Penny and Zito raised their marks to 3-0. Look in your mixed leagues: Garcia, Zito and Penny just might be available.
