Besides going deep, lefty yields two runs over eight frames
By Jonathan Hawthorne
SAN FRANCISCO -- Ty Blach single-handedly impressed the Giants with a towering three-run home run in the fifth inning. But on any other night, his eight innings of two-run ball would have easily lead the postgame chatter.
So it goes for Blach, the crafty left-hander, who has strung together a run of good starts. His latest came in a 11-2 rout of the A's at AT&T Park on Thursday. He put a punctuation mark on his night with the 416-foot blast, the first since his days at Regis Jesuit High School in Aurora, Colo.
