What the Giants have to go through to get a win.
Another 13 inning game. A win, not really of the Giants making. Beats hell out of another loss, though. On to Azirona!
Madison Bumgarner on the hill. 6 2/3 innings, 3 hits, only 1 run, 4 walks, 5 K in 116 pitches. Madison does not quite have the pinpoint control that we are used to from years past - he would frequently go 8 with only 1 BB. Not that the ump was very helpful in this regard, a small and not particularly consistent strike zone was not helpful to either pitcher. The Giants took a 4 - 1 lead into the 8th and I was thinking, "See, see what you can do when you score a couple......" but then, Cory Gearrin allowed 2 to put the Giants in need of a save by Santiago Casilla. They didn't get it. Giants had their chances. They put runners on every extra inning, but could not push one across. I guess that should not have come as a surprise, the Giants were 2 for 16 with RISP in this game and 4 for 33 (I think) in the series. Buster, who hasn't had a hit in days, got the gwrbi for not striking out. Bloogies get a day off, the Giants don't until next Monday. Giants used 8 pitchers and Albert Suarez got a win. 4 games in Az, where the Giants have been able to hit in the past. Time to act like we have some cajones in this division.
