Not what we expected. Again. A quick glimpse of our pre-All∗Star Break Giants Thursday and the unrecognizables were back Friday night.
Albert Suarez’s not so terrific outing was capped off by reliever Matt Reynolds absolutely, unbelievably horrific fifth inning. Add to that our ho hum offense, and you have a recipe for a bleak October.
I’m not going to recap Friday’s game. I’d just as soon forget about it. The final score was:
Giants 2, Padres 7
My scoreboard watching was mezza-mezza today. The Dodgers have a seven game lead over us-with eight left to play-after beating the Rockies tonight. The Mets won today and are the only team in the first Wild Card spot with one game on us. The Cardinals lost today and are a half game behind us for the second spot. We’re hanging on by an orange thread in the second spot all by ourselves.
Let’s put this one behind us. I’ll feel better tomorrow. Tomorrow’s a new day and we have Madison Bumgarner on the hill. You know me–I like our chances. Game time is 5:40 pm. The game will be on NBC Bay Area, the MLB Network and KNBR 680. Tune in and Don’t Stop Believing.
