That’s how I feel as a fan. We’re not getting any satisfaction.
If it isn’t one thing, it’s another. The bullpen zigs and the bats zag. The pitching is up and the bats are down. And when that happens it allows a team like the Padres to get out their brooms and sweep us. Unfathomable. I’m almost out of “un” words.
I have one left. The Giants need to pull out of this skid or the hard work they put out in the first half will be “un”done by their performance in the second half.
Tuesday night the bats were swinging away, but the bullpen blew it. Wednesday the bats were pretty quiet, while the pitching kept the game from getting too far away from us.
The Giants scored one run in the second inning. That was our best inning–Brandon Crawford drew a walk, Brandon Belt hit a single and Joe Panik drove Crawford home with another single. Game tied.
The Padres managed to scare up three runs–they scored one run in the first inning, one in the sixth and one in the seventh. The final score was:
Giants 1, Padres 3
One thing that happened today–the Dodgers beat the Yankees putting the Giants five games back in the NL West. But our two biggest competitors for the Wild Card also lost, so we’re still ahead in that race–half a game ahead of the Mets and one game ahead of the Cardinals.
The Cardinals come to town tomorrow. Game time is 7:15 pm and will be on CSN-BA and KNBR 680. Johnny Cueto is pitching for the Giants. I love it when Johnny Beisbol is on the mound. Don’t Stop Believing.
