SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. -- The Giants spent Tuesday morning working extra on converting double plays. They proceeded to demonstrate why they needed practice.
San Francisco courted trouble in the ninth inning of their 3-2 exhibition victory over Colorado when first baseman Angel Villalona couldn't hold on to second baseman Nick Noonan's low throw that could have resulted in a game-ending double play.
"You try to look at positives, I guess, when you don't turn a double play," Bochy said. "The pitcher has to get some experience getting out of a jam with the game on the line."
