I don’t know how, but we’re still in the hunt. Even after we were shut out by the Rockies Wednesday night.
Jeff Samardzija pitched a good game, allowing 2 runs on seven hits and one walk, but he struck out 11–he did a great job.
Problem was our bats. They were very quiet. Oh sure, we had runners on almost every inning, but they couldn’t get the hits to bring them home. Or they hit into a double play. It was not our night. The final score was:
Giants 0, Rockies 2
The good new is it wasn’t the Cardinals night either. The Mets won, beating Miami 5-2, but the Cardinals lost to the Reds 2-1. So, while the Mets are a game and a half up on us, the Cardinals are still a game back.
Thursday’s game starts at 7:15 pm. Johnny Cueto is scheduled to pitch. Let’s hope he’s up to it. The game will be on CSN-BA, KNBR 680, and KKSF.
Miami had a funeral procession for Jose Fernandez today. It reminded me once again to enjoy every ballgame I get to watch and appreciate my team. So, San Francisco Giants–you didn’t win today, but I’ll take whatever you’re giving–I’m just glad you’re all here.
However it turns out, Don’t Stop Believing.
