Correia Giants pitching staff much-needed good news in win over Nationals

First two paragraphs:

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. (AP)—Kevin Correia gave the San Francisco Giants reason to believe he might be the answer to solving one of their pitching staff’s problems.

Correia worked four strong innings, allowing one run on two hits in a 3-2 win over Oakland on Friday and making a case to fill in for Noah Lowry, who had surgery on his left forearm earlier in the day.

...I'm sorry, I thought that I could think of a joke to put there, but I can't. I have failed you, Bob and all of your loyal Griddle readers. My letter of resignation is in the mail.
