Giants 13, Indians 4 Recap | Box Score

Well, it’s a good thing this one didn’t count I suppose. Josh Tomlin got absolutely rocked in his second spring appearance to the tune of 5 runs on 6 hits with a walk and 4 strikeouts in his 2.0 innings. Someone named Louis Head also gave up 5 runs in the ninth inning, but eh. Of the three Cleveland hits on the day, one was a home run off the batter’s eye in center field by Edwin Encarnacion.

After taking a line drive to the head back in August of 2015, no one would’ve blamed Evan Marshall for being done with baseball for good.

He was great for the Diamondbacks in 2014, so here’s to hoping he can make his comeback this season.
