Good Guys Lose

All the way around.  G's lose to M's.  The Giants struggled with the surprisingly competent Florida Marlins and the Golden State Warriors got crunched by Memphis.  It's cold as hell and we're running out of water fast.

Madison Bumgarner was on the mound for the Giants.  He threw 99 pitches, and that netted him 10 strikeouts.  Unfortunately, the 3 runs in 5 innings was enough for an L as the Giants could only score 2.  The Giants put up 10 hits but could only net 2 runs, in contrast to the Marlins who could only put up 8 hits, but wound up with 6 runs.  Miami bunched their hits in the 4th off of Madison, and then bunched a few more in the 8th off of Jean Machi.  The Giants meanwhile, sprinkled their hit allotment throughout the lineup and across the game.  What can you say?  Madison had 10 strikeouts and only 5 hits, but they resulted in 3 runs.  After the other day's win, they were at .500 again, but now have to win today to split with the Marls and get back to even.

That was just a yucky game all around. Let's hope it is better today.
