Tonight Barry Zito will start for the San Francisco Giants. Its safe to say that Zito is not having the kind of season that he or the Giants had expected from the left hander. Zito’s last 2 starts have been a couple of his worst outings so far this season. Zito lasted only 5.1 innings against the Brewers in which he gave up 8 hits and 7 earned runs. His last start was against the Marlins in which he lasted 4.0 innings giving up 8 hits and 6 earned runs. Everyone knows that Barry Zito has been a succesful pitcher in his career. Zito was a 16 game winner last season for Oakland and this season with the Giants Zito is just 7-10. Tonight he will face a Dodger line up with a lot of youth in it. Dont let the youth fool you though cause these Dodgers are in contention and currently just 1 game behind Arizona in the NL west. Zito will look to turn things around tonight and hopefully get things going back on the right track.
