8-2 win in SF
The Giants win again against the Padres. That's 8-0 so far. Doing a little math, it seems the Giants are 21-19 against the rest of baseball. Hey, I'm not complaining. Good teams need to have some bad teams they can feast on. After tomorrow the two clubs don't meet again until the Giants go to San Diego right after the All-Star Break for three. They then have three in September at home before a four-game set over the penultimate weekend back in Petco. So there's a lot of ball left to be played between these squads.
Jeff Samardzija did his usual stalwart job hosting the Jeff Samardzija Show, with its panoply of cutters, high heat, and some sinkers, but it wasn't as good as the last episode. I'll think it'll be better next time. Overall, the Show looks like a winner. Good ratings. Critics are won over. Solid, prime-time stuff.
And the bats came alive at the end, I like to see that. You have to have some hitting, and they were hitting so well for a while there, and they have such a fun lineup, you really want to see some hits, so I was happy they delivered. But once again the game was decided by the run-prevention side of things, the extra runs were the icing on the cake. I'm not complaining.
Getaway game tomorrow at 12:45 Pacific. Jake Peavy tries to stave off the Heave the Peave Campaign. Wish him luck.
