Chacin pitching in the 7th inning.
With 2 outs Brandon Crawford got the first hit of the game a bloop to shallow center to break up the No, No. It was great to be able to see this game. Chacin pitch unbelievable and is really starting to show how good of a pitcher he is and what he could accomplish in the future.
