Giants' Dereck Rodriguez: Picks up win in relief
Rodriguez was the winning pitcher of record after throwing three scoreless innings with two walks and three strikeouts in Wednesday's 13-inning victory over the Cubs.
Rodriguez had his scheduled start skipped after Johnny Cueto was pushed back a day in his second appearance since returning from the disabled list. The rookie was still able to help his fantasy owners by picking up his fourth win with a strong outing in long relief. The scheduling conflict allowed the Giants' primary long reliever, Derek Holland, to pick up a start Tuesday, but Rodriguez and his 2.89 ERA will return to the rotation following the All-Star break.
