The pitch chart looked incredible. After starting the at-bat 1-2, Belt was able to work the count full, and then proceeded to foul off 11 consecutive pitches before finally putting a ball in play. Even though Belt didn't end the epic duel with a hit, he essentially forced the Angels to stretch their bullpen. He had a 12-pitch at-bat that helped the Yankees close out a Game 5 win in their division series against the Cleveland Indians past year. If there was only a tacit acknowledgment between them, Belt did admit to Maldonado that he understood how he felt. He swung and missed just once and was greeted with high-fives when he returned to the dugout.

The Giants would go on to win the game, 4-2, thanks in part to a home run from Belt, who has been on a tear of late.

Just five days after he broke up Diamondbacks pitcher Patrick Corbin's bid for a no-hitter, Giants first baseman Brandon Belt had another memorable at-bat.

Said Angels shortstop Andrelton Simmons: "That was impressive, huh? I was really exhausted after that", Simmons said.

"I'm going, 'This can't be happening, '" he said. Barria had thrown nine pitches to Joe Panik, who hit a leadoff single, before throwing 21 to Belt. He allowed two runs and six hits, struck out one and walked one.

Barria was taken out after the second inning and a 77-pitch count.

Belt also homered in the fifth inning in a nine-pitch at-bat versus Blake Parker and singled on the first pitch from Jim Johnson in the seventh.
