Molina hits home run, doesn't score a run

1

Bengie Molina had a single overturned on replay Friday and was awarded his 16th homer of the season. Yet, he didn't score a run. Just another example of how slow Bengie is? Kind of. After Molina long shot off the top of the wall in right was originally declared a single, the Giants opted to have Emmanuel Burriss pinch-run for him. When the replay overturned the call, it was Burriss who came around to score. Manager Bruce Bochy argued that Molina should have been allowed to return to the game and played the game under protest when he didn't have his way. Molina has 46 runs scored this year, which is actually his highest total since 2000. However, it's still a remarkably low total for a guy who started 131 games in the cleanup spot.
