With the season coming closer to an end, and the Giants in the middle of a race for a playoff spot, Brian Wilson was activated and immediately showed that he is in top form. After being on the disabled list for a little less than five weeks after the hurt his elbow, Wilson came into the eighth inning and struck out the first two batters he faced.
Throughout the entire time that the All-Star Closer was on the DL, he was very quiet to the reporters about his injury. Before the game though, Wilson finally
shared some words to the print reporters saying that his focus is still about this season, and not next year’s.
“I’m not worried about 2012, and the Giants shouldn’t be worried about 2012 either,” Wilson said. “That’s why I’m activated today. We’re not eliminated. I don’t care what percentages you talk about. There’s still baseball left. There’s always a chance, especially when you get to play (Arizona) again.”
The Giants are just five games behind the Diamondbacks in the National League West.
