Zito picks up Giants three days after his father's death

Barry Zito was away from the Giants last Wednesday, the day his father, Joseph Zito, died in Van Nuys. Three days later, he took the mound on a sunny afternoon at AT&T Park for his normal turn in the rotation and held the Miami Marlins to one run in seven innings in a game the Giants won 2-1 in the 11th – long after Zito had departed, but with his impact still being felt.
