4-0 win in Atlanta
Jake Peavy celebrated his 35th birthday with a major heaping of Veteran Savvy Clutchness, throwing seven scoreless innings of one-hit baseball. Not to mention showing even more VSC with a clutch hit and savvy baserunning in the 6th to score the only run that mattered. The Giants eked and squeaked and finally got a breakthrough in the 8th to make a 1-0 contest a no-contest. But the story was Jake Peavy having his best outing (by Game Score) since August 30th, 2014. Sure, it's the Braves. They've only won FIVE games at home this year. But good news and positive developments are always welcome. If the Giants can get adequate 4th/5th starter stuff from Jake Peavy that's a boon for the ballclub. Oh, and Denard Span had another great game.
1st inning: 8-10
2nd inning: 10-8
3rd inning: 15-3
Giants go 21-8 in May after a 12-13 April. I do believe the 15-3 seasonal inning is the best since I've started keeping track. I'm too tired to double-check that, but I will, though! We've got journalistic standards to uphold around here. Regardless, it's a ridiculous inning.
Albert Suarez gets his shot to start tomorrow.
