Giants find success with pink bats
PHOENIX -- Three Giants -- Gregor Blanco, Hector Sanchez and Brandon Crawford -- used pink bats Sunday stamped with the MLB breast cancer awareness logo for Mother's Day.

The gesture appeared to bring good fortunes to the players as they batted a combined 5-for-12 with four RBIs and four runs scored in a 7-3 series-clinching victory over the D-backs at Chase Field.

"I did it for Mother's Day and the things that symbolizes," Crawford said. "I did it for my mom. I texted her earlier."

Sergio Romo, who struck out the side in the ninth inning, wore pink cleats to show his support while others donned wristbands, necklaces and batting gloves.
