Bad news for Ryan Sadowski. In an effort to produce more runs, the Giants called up OF John Bowker from Triple-A Fresno and concurrently sent Sadowski down.
Worse still, the guy Sadowski replaced in the rotation pitched the game of his life tonight. Jonathan Sanchez threw a no-no against the Padres and flirted with a perfect game. Sanchez will likely be able to ride the coattails of this game for awhile a la Clay Buchholz. Randy Johnson and Barry Zito aren't going anywhere, either. Sadly, it would appear that Sadowski is the odd man out.
