Giants | Brandon Belt starting slow
Thu, 18 Apr 2013 10:46:21 -0700

San Francisco Giants 1B Brandon Belt had three hits, a stolen base and two RBIs Tuesday, April 16, but went 0-for-3 with two strikeouts Wednesday, April 17, and was dropped to seventh in the order Thursday, April 18. Belt has gotten off to a slow start this year after a stomach virus limited his early action. "We'll see how he swings (Wednesday), but I may keep him there for a little while until he gets more comfortable at the plate," manager Bruce Bochy said. "I know guys get hot and cold, that's going to happen. Brandon's really made some nice strides from last year and this spring with the bat. I think in the early go here, he's thrown up some good at bats. I'm liking where he's at today." Both C Buster Posey and 2B Marco Scutaro were given the day off Thursday, with SS Brandon Crawford moving up to fifth in the order. Crawford has hit safely in a career-best 10 straight games.
