Belt and Simmons with big oh-fers

by Bill Chuck on July 9, 2013

The Braves topped the Marlins 7-1 when they scored six runs in the 14th. Andrelton Simmons went 0-for-7 in a winning cause.

Simmons is at least consoled by the victory.

The Giants lost 4-3 to the Mets in 16 innings. Brandon Belt, batting in the third spot for the first time in his career, was 0 for 8 with five strikeouts.

I was curious…

In 2857 games with the Giants, Willie Mays had four ganes in which he struck out as many as four times.
