Beede beams after Giants win his debut
SAN FRANCISCO -- Nearly two hours after he was removed from Tuesday night's game against the Arizona Diamondbacks, which the Giants won, 5-4, Tyler Beede wore his full uniform as he chatted with friends and relatives outside the team's clubhouse.
So, you were so thrilled about your Major League debut that you didn't want to shed your work clothes, right, Tyler?
Wrong. He put his jersey back on to give his loved ones what they wanted as they posed for pictures. "For family photos, that was probably the play," Beede said.

Beede didn't satisfy just the folks who came to see him. He kept the score close during his four-inning stint, allowing a pair of first-inning runs but little else. Beede received no decision, but he certainly contributed to San Francisco's victory.
"A lot of thoughts come to my mind, but at the end of the day, I kept the team in a position to win," said Beede, who surrendered three hits, walked five and struck out three besides yielding those two runs.
"I was nervous probably prior to the game," Beede said. "Once I got out there, I settled in."
