The Giants offense continued to struggle, this time against Carl Pavano. Manny Burriss broke up the 0-31 RISP streak with a line drive up the middle in the 8th, scoring Miguel Tejada. Eli Whiteside broke up the shutout with a solo homer in the 7th.
Weird shit happens in baseball. That was some weird shit in the 1st inning last night. Grant Brisbee at McChronic gives a nice blow-by-blow breakdown for those of you who missed it. Strap on your punishment leathers before diving in. Watching it was mind-numbing: I had no emotional response. I just sat with my mouth hanging open, unable to feel. I suppose gobbling Xanax would have produced the same result, just with worse side effects.
Giants lose their fifth straight and fall out of first place.
