I know, I know–how can I be on the DL when all I do is write?! Well, I’ll tell you–it’s actually pretty easy. I write about the games after I’ve watched them. And even though I caught bits and pieces of the GIANTS playing against the Dodgers, I didn’t catch enough to string together a blog about it it.
But I was able to put the line-ups on Facebook. I’ve been keeping my finger on the pulse. I know the GIANTS won the 1st game–I also know the GIANTS lost the remaining 2 games in the series, at least the Dodgers didn’t sweep us–there is something to be said about that.
Game #1–I wasn’t able to watch the entire game, c’mon–4 extra innings? I was never going to make it through 9 regular. The game was tied, 2-2 through the 9th, and the 10th, 11th, and 12th. But the 13th? That’s when the GIANTS scored 3 runs. The final score was:
GIANTS 5, Dodgers 2
Game #2–that was the game I thought the GIANTS had chance to win, and would have except for the very shaky 1st inning where Bumgarner gave up 2 HRs, 1 solo and a 2 run HR. Bumgarner would not go quietly. In the 3rd, with 1 man on he hit a HR of his own. Unfortunately, it wasn’t enough to tie it up–not to mention the Dodgers scored another solo HR in the 8th. The final score was:
GIANTS 2, Dodgers 4
Game #3–the Heartbreaker. I thought–if anyone can take Kershaw down–it would be the GIANTS, right? That’s how it started. Hudson pitched a helluva game. The GIANTS drew 1st blood when they cobbled together a run scored by Arias in the 3rd. The Dodgers caught up, tying the game in the 5th, surged ahead in the 6th and tacked on a bunch more in the 8th. The final score was:
GIANTS 1, Dodgers 9
That’s all the news that’s fit to print. I’m not sure when I’ll get to do another post, but hopefully it will be more relevant. Thanks for reading.
