SF Giants Just Another Manic Monday

bochy 07.24

Giants fans don’t really wish it were Sunday, either.

Some of the mania happened in the second inning, when, after getting a couple of outs, Matt Cain‘s inning was extended by Eduardo Nunez‘s fielding error. Four unearned runs scored—adding to the Pirates already two-run score, Cain lost his cool with the ump and manager Bruce Bochy got tossed.

The Giants bats made some noise in the fourth—Brandon Belt belted out a double to lead off the inning and he scored on Brandon Crawford‘s single. The Giants loaded the bases, but left them full at the end of the inning.

In the fifth, Denard Span drew a walk to lead-off the inning, advanced to second on Nunez’s single, moved to third on Belt’s force out and scored on Buster Posey‘s single. Span drew another walk to lead-off the seventh and scored on another of Buster’s singles.

The Giants didn’t score again, but Pittsburgh sure did. The Pirates put up another four run inning–this time all earned–in the eighth.

The final score was: Giants 3, Pirates 10

Still thanking the baseball gods for the Phillies, but I’m afraid I’m getting Tinnitus from hearing that damn bell ringing in my mind.
