What do you say about a game in which Carlos Beltran has the defensive gem and Brandon Crawford errs? Giants lose, yet again, to make it 6 in a row. This time, to the Yankees, 3 - 2.
Madison Bumgarner taking the hill for the Giants in New York. So far, this swing through the ballparks of the eastern AL has been anything but fun. Madison pitched all right, he gave up 2 runs in 7 innings, 7 hits, struck out 6 and walked 3. Josh Osich gave up 1. The Giants did not score until the 7th, on a wild pitch, and then Williamson batted in Trevor Brown with a double in the 8th. That tied the game until Brandon C threw the ball past Brandon B at first. Buster banged a ball off of his foot and had to leave the game. So the offense, which seemed to come alive during the last game in Boston as the pitchers were throwing batting practice, went back to sleep and a pretty well pitched game was wasted. Well, here is something positive. As I type this, the Cardinals have beaten the doggers in the 16th.
