Win Some, Lose Some

If 2 out of 3 ain’t bad, what’s 3 out of 4? Kinda good? Mathematically speaking, 3 out of 4–or 75% is better than 2 out of 3–which is 66%. So yesterday’s GIANTS game, even though the GIANTS lost, wasn’t so bad. In fact, it was kinda good, right? You can’t win them all. Win some, lose some. Got any other cliches to rationalize yesterday’s loss? No? Ok. Moving on.

imageHudson had a decent outing. He gave up 8 hits, 2 runs-unearned-walked 2 and struck out 6. The defense, for the most part, did a god job trying to keep the game close so the GIANTS could get back in it. But the Phillies’ pitcher brought his best stuff to the ballpark yesterday and wasn’t going to let that happen.

The Phillies got off to an early start by scoring a run in the 1st inning. Both teams went scoreless in the 2nd, 3rd, & 4th. Blanco led-off the 5th with a single, Hudson moved him over to 2nd with a SAC bunt, and Adrianza brought him home with an RBI single, tying the game.  The Phillies scored another run in the bottom half of the inning, re-taking the lead. Nobody scored in the 6th, 7th, 8th, or 9th. The final score was:

GIANTS 1, Phillies 2

So, that’s it. The GIANTS lost the game but won the series. Sound familiar?
