Webb ushers Giants into All-Star break with complete shutout

Webb ushers Giants into All-Star break with complete shutout originally appeared on NBC Sports Bay Area

Logan Webb hasn’t had much support from the Giants’ offense this season.

He didn’t get it Sunday at Oracle Park. But I didn’t need it either.

Webb saved his first career shutout for the Giants’ final game before the All-Star break, holding the Colorado Rockies scoreless in an electric 1-0 win.

Webb, after throwing 90 pitches in eight scoreless innings, trotted back for ninth while Camilo Doval, closer to the stars, watched from the bullpen. He completed the best outing of his career by sniffing out Kris Bryant, Ryan McMahon and Elias Diaz on 13 pitches to cap off a special day at Oracle Park.

Giants third baseman JD Davis provided Webb with the only run he needed, hitting a solo home run in the fourth. It was his 11th dinger of the season and his first since June 17.

The Giants finish the first half of the season at 49-41, three games behind the Arizona Diamondbacks in the NL West. They send Doval and starting pitcher Alex Cobb to the All-Star Game in Seattle before returning to action Friday against the Pittsburgh Pirates.
