San Francisco, CA.--
Brandon Belt went to the plate in the bottom of the seventh inning wanting to see the ball as well as he could. Once he got ahead in the count, he locked in on something he could hit.

Belt's two-run double chased away some of the pressure of hitting with runners in scoring position and the San Francisco Giants rallied for a 2-1 victory over the San Diego Padres on Saturday night.

"You can't go up there looking for something against that guy because he can throw any pitch in any count," Belt said. "Fortunately I got something I could handle."
