Playing like a team in the midst of an impressive death spiral, the Giants dropped their sixth in a row as they lost to the Rockies, 4-2. We have it all going on right now: shoddy defense, inept offense and largely inadequate pitching. One can only hope that this stanky stretch will finish up soon; this team needs to feel some love.
Tim Lincecum pitched like a pretty bad number 5 starter. He gave up a healthy lead right away and really put his team in a big hole. He never hit over 90 mph (that I saw) and seemed to average around 88. It wasn't a complete implosion - 5 innings, 6 hits, 4 runs(3 earned), 1 walk, 4 SO - but it sure was nothing to get excited about. Yep, Timmeh looked like exactly what he is; an end of the rotation guy.
The offense was largely forgettable once again. Matt Duffy hit an 8th inning homer and Angel Pagan had a three hit night but everything else is a bunch of meh. I must admit I'm getting very tired of watching Hector Sanchez play baseball. Susac, anyone? And how much longer does Joaquin Arias take up a roster spot? It is not like those guys are to blame for this spell of sh*t baseball, it just feels better to blame someone and then chop their heads off!
