5-3 loss in SF
A fine effort by Emergency Man™ Albert Suárez was wasted and the Giants lost their third straight game in which they held the lead. I think he gets the 2016 Yusmeiro Petit Award. Premature, I know, but I'm felling it. It's a bit worrisome, this bullpen thing, and equally bad is this lack of the killer blow, the coup de grâce as it were. The Giants had, three times now, their opponent down and ready to be finished off, and each time they surrendered their lead and lost the game. Yes, the Sox are a good team. But this was one that got away. Nice to see Jarrett Parker get another homer as well as a clutch hit off Craig Kimbrel to try to start a rally in the 10th. Giants are in a bit of a funk and need to kick some ass.
Madison Bumgarner goes tomorrow night. That ought to help.
