SF Giants Panik attack comeback

06.23 576c434c36f9d.imageThe theme of the last two games is the come from behind win. Wednesday the Giants overcame a five-run deficit and Thursday the Pirates scored one run in the first, but the Giants overtook them in the third and never looked back.

Jarrett Parker led off the third inning with a walk, Conor Gillaspie singled and Alberto Suarez moved them over a base each with a sac bunt. Denard Span walked and the bases were loaded for Joe Panik who hit a bases clearing triple. Mac Williamson’s ground ball single drove Panik home.

Williamson capped it off with a big fly in the sixth, his second major league home run, adding a little extra insurance for the Giants.

I guess Jobu was happy with all the rum we supplied. The final score was:

Giants 5, Pirates 3

We won the series, three of four games, and the one game we lost was the one I figured we would win for sure. We were so close to turning that game into a pitching duel that went on for extra innings. But that, my friends, is baseball.

Tomorrow we head home to face the Phillies. Jake Peavy is on the mound for the Giants and lately he looks real good. His first nine starts he racked up a whopping 8.21 ERA, and his last five starts combined for a 1.76 ERA. That’s a different pitcher.

Kruk and Kuip expressed the opinion that it might be because of the financial advisor that scammed him out of million$ read all about it:           http://money.cnn.com/2016/06/22/news/ponzi-scheme-ash-narayan-sanchez-peavy/

I think that is a legitimate theory–that kind of problem would wreak havoc with my concentration. Oh, who am I kidding? I’m beyond consolable for selling my Apple stock at $25 because I was sure that was as high as it would go. I only had 100 shares and I still can’t concentrate–and that happened in 1998.
