Interleague play is clearly a bad idea. At least, I'm sure the Giants think so. Tonight, our beloved boys lost a crazy one, 9-6 in favor of the A's. That makes it their fifth straight loss against an AL squad and this one was especially painful; we were home and we hit the snot out of the ball. But six runs and 13 hits aren't enough for this pitching staff and defensive squad to protect right now. Especially with Tim Lincecum starting.
Not much analysis is really possible, or needed, when discussing the man we once called The Freak. He just doesn't really know where he is throwing the ball anymore. And by anymore I mean for , oh, a couple years now. Nothing new. We have seen Tim do this crap ( 4.1 innings, 7 hits, 5 runs, 4 walks ) so many times now I am finally getting immune to the agony of watching it. Heavy sigh.
Great nights for Blanco, Torres, and Scutaro. Homers by Pence and Pill. That should be a recipe for joy but when you add in three ugly errors, and some pretty skanky pitching, you end up with a foul taste in your mouth.
Guess that calls for a night cap!! What better way to shake it off, sleep well, and come back for some new punishment tomorrow? Cheers.
