Kyle McClellan has seen better days. The Giants are teeing off on the Cardinals’ starter in the first of four games between the two clubs.
After allowing two runs on four hits through the first three innings, the Giants tagged McClellan for five runs in the top of the fourth, capped by Andres Torres’s first career grand slam, which landed 337 feet away from home plate in the right field stands, putting the Giants ahead 7-2.
McClellan has fallen behind on 11 of the 21 batters he’s faced and has allowed the leadoff man to score in three of the four innings he’s worked.
The grand slam was the second home run McClellan has surrendered this afternoon.
