Foppert pitched a solid five innings, earning only one of the two runs scored in the fourth inning; John Olerud hit for two bags and was brought home by a single from Mike Cameron, who later came in to score on a Benito Santiago error.
Marquis Grissom scored the only Giants run with a solo shot to left field in the bottom of the fourth. This is probably due to Barry Bonds' absence in the starting lineup- today was his day off.
Foppert, who now heads to Triple-A Fresno today, will be watching Jensen and Ainsworth's first couple of starts- any slip up from either the relatively verteran Jensen or the gold medal Ainsworth and Foppert could be standing on the mound quicker than Marvin Benard can slap a guy with a towel full of shaving cream (isn't it wonderful to be a rookie!).
On a slightly less entertaining note, Jose Cruz Jr. took a nasty slide into second in the fifth inning, eating enough dirt to keep him spitting well into the seventh. Note to younger players: make sure your arms stay in front of you when you slide. Also, remember to check your belt for dirt while you are wiping yourself off.
