Tyler Beede RHP- 1 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 1 K.  ERA= 6.88.

Encouraging rehab start for Johnny Cueto.   Baby step for Tyler Beede.

Luis Ysla LHP(Baysox)- 5 IP, 1 H, 1 R, 2 BB, 8 K's.  ERA= 4.66.

Free Luigi!  Actually, not sure where he would play in Sacramento as they have Shaw, Duggar and Mac in the OF now.  If the name Luis Ysla seems familiar, he pitched in the Giants organization from 2013-2015.  Highest level reached for the Giants was San Jose.

Franklin Van Gurp RHP- 3 IP, 2 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 1 K.  ERA= 0.75.

The big news here is John Gavin's 7 inning no-hitter.  Seems like a midseason promotion might be in order for him.

Orleny Quiroz LHP- 2 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 4 K's.  ERA= 4.50.

I've always been high on Jose Layer's athleticism.  If he continues to hit, he's a prospect.  Diego Rincones just turned 19 on June 4.  He looks like he has a legit bat.

5 no-hit innings for Ivan Armstrong.  He is 17 yo.  He is listed at 6'5", 247 lbs.  A big boy!

Game Wrap 6/23/2018: Giants 5 Padres 3

Brandon Crawford was a one man offense for the Giants today and gave them a big enough lead to overcome a shaky 9'th inning from Sam Dyson.  Key Lines:

Brandon Crawford SS- 3 for 3, 2 2B, 3B, BB.  BA= .313.  Crawford had been in an 0 for 18 and 3 for 34 slump prior to today's breakout.  His throwing error on a slow grounder in the 9'th led to 1 extra run for the Padres.  He also whiffed on a pop-up to not-so-short CF that maybe should have been caught by the CF.

Austin Slater PH- 0 for 0, SF.  BA= .273.  Slater was called up before the game to replace the struggling Mac Williamson, but in true Bruce Bochy fashion will be a bat off the bench.  He had a productive PA in this game.  In Boch's defense, apparently the plan is to start Alen Hanson in LF.  Seeing if he can sustain what he's done this season is a worthy goal.

Andrew Suarez LHP- 5.2 IP, 8 H, 1 R, 1 BB, 4 K's, GO/AO= 8/1.  ERA= 4.43.  Suarez has been getting better with experience.  His ERA is 2.86 for the month of June.  His peripheral stats are stronger than his season ERA:  61 K with 13 BB in 65 IP with a strong GO/AO= 1.57.  His FIP and xFIP remain more than 1 run lower than his ERA.  I'm guessing he and Dereck Rodriguez will get sent down when Jeff Samardzija and Johnny Cueto come off the DL, but they certainly give the Giants depth in the rotation if further injuries or meltdowns occur.

Sam Dyson RHP- 1 IP, 3 H, 2 R, 1 ER, 0 BB, 1 K.  ERA= 3.12.  Mark Melancon may have taken a step closer to regaining his Closer role with this performance by Dyson.  In Dyson's defense, only one of the hits was hard hit.  The other 2 were the pop up that fell in CF and the dribbler that Crawford should have eaten.  Those are pure BABIP luck specials and were likely a result of Dyson making good pitches which induced the soft contact.  I'll give him a pass on this appearance.

Matt Strahm LHP(Padres)- 3.1 IP, 2 H, 1 R, 2 BB, 5 K's.  ERA- 2.28.  Jordan Lyles was a very late scratch with "forearm tightness".  Strahm has been used as an "opener" for several games, so there was some speculation by Kruk and Kuip that this may have been some gamesmanship by Padres Manager Andy Green, who...shall we say.....seems to really enjoy managing!  Lyles is listed in the boxscore so he apparently was not eligible to re-enter the game, which would tend to go against the gamesmanship theory.  It will be worth watching whether Lyles hits the DL or at least misses a start.  If Lyles does go on the DL, Strahm may be worth a look by fantasy baseball players.

*********************************************************************************

The Win allowed the Giants to reclaim 3'rd place in the NL West from the Rockies who lost to the Marlins.  The D'Backs and Dodgers both won.  The D'Backs remain in first place with the Dodgers trailing by 3, the Giants by 5, Rockies by 5.5 and the Padres by 9.5.

Game Wrap 6/22/2018: Padres 6 Giants 2

The Giants offense sputtered against lefty Clayton Richard and the Giants failed to take advantage of a Quality Start by Chris Stratton.  Key Lines:

Gorkys Hernandez CF- 2 for 4, 2 2B.  BA= .286.  Gorkys led off the Giants first inning with a drive up Triples Alley that Margot was just able to cut off at the warning track to hold him to a double.  He came around to score on a Wild Pitch to get the Giants the first lead of the game.  Gorkys doubled again later in the 6'th inning but with 2 outs and was stranded when Buster Posey's liner was caught by Wil Myers in LF.

Chris Stratton RHP- 6 IP, 9 H, 3 R, 2 ER, 0 BB, 3 K's.  ERA= 4.14.  Even though he did not walk anyone, I thought Stratton's command was off, especially early in the game.  All of his pitches were up in the strike zone.  I felt like he was fortunate to not give up more runs than he did.  He did seem to settle down a bit until the 6'th inning.  Once the Padres got that lead, you kind of knew the game was over.

*********************************************************************************

All other NL West teams won, so the Giants fell into 4'th place, 5 games behind the division leading D'Backs.  The Dodgers are 2.5 games behind the leaders, the Rockies are 4.5 games back and the Padres remain 8.5 games behind in last place.

Manny Parra LHP- 1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 1 K.  ERA= 3.29.

Same old issues here.  Shark has a terrific K/BB, but give up 2 runs on a homer, single, double sequence in the 2'nd inning.  Tyler Beede's runs were unearned but he's obviously still not right.

AA  Richmond Flying Squirrels edged out the Altoona Curve 2-1(4.5 innings, shortened by rain):

Jose Layer performed well in limited playing time over 2 seasons in the AZL.  He looks to be the regular CF for S-K this season.  Gregory Santos is just 18 yrs old but already has 2 DSL seasons under his belt so skips the AZL.  Looks like he is ready for the challenge.

Game Wrap 6/21/2018: Giants 3 Padres 0

Madison Bumgarner woke up the echoes with a dominating 8 shutout inning performance to lead the Giants to a Win over Tyson Ross and the Pesky Padres in AT&T Park.  Key Lines:

Alen Hanson LF- 1 for 4, 3B.  BA= .311.  Was Hanson just protecting Mac Williamson and Hunter Pence a very tough RHP or is he the Giants new LF?  His leadoff triple in the 8'th led to a couple of insurance runs for Mark Melancon.

Buster Posey C- 1 for 3, BB.  BA= .290.  Buster singled up the middle to drive in Hanson in the top of the 9'th.  He also made an athletic play at the plate to tag Jose Pirela trying to score from 1B on a double.  More on that later.

Pablo Sandoval 3B- 1 for 4.  BA= .281.  Pablo scored the first run of the game in the 5'th inning after leading off with a single up the middle.  He also fielded a bunch of hot shots at 3B and made it look easy.

Joe Panik 2B- 2 for 3, 2 2B.  BA= .247.  The Boxscore doesn't show that Panik scored or drove in a run nor does it credit him with an assist, but he had as much to do with winning this game as anyone. His double sent Pablo Sandoval to 3B with no outs to set up Bummy's sac fly for the first run of the game, he then made an almost perfect relay throw to nail Jose Pirela at home.  More on that later.

Madison Bumgarner LHP- 0 for 1, SF.  BA= .000.  For awhile it looked like Bummy might drive in the only run of the game with a SF at the end of a great PA in the 5'th inning.

Madison Bumgarner LHP- 8 IP, 3 H, 0 R, 2 BB, 8 K's.  ERA= 3.20.  Vintage game from Bummy who was throwing darts out there and mixing in all of his pitches including an increasingly lethal changeup.  Gotta say I was a little surprised he did not come out to start the 9'th inning after throwing 100 pitches.

Bummy was helped by a terrific piece of team defense in the 5'th inning.  With the score still tied at 0 and Jose Pirela, a fast runner at 1B, Manuel Margot lined one up against the RF wall.   Andrew McCutchen got himself in a great position, barehanded the ball and threw a seed to the cutoff man, Joe Panik who turned and in one motion threw a strike to Buster.  Pirela ran through his 3B coach's stop sign and was out by 10 ft, but Buster had to make an athletic, diving tag to prevent the run from scoring.

Mark Melancon RHP- 1 IP,  1 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 1 K, Save(1).  ERA= 2.35.  Melancon gave up a leadoff single on a hanging curveball but settled down to easily retire the next 3 batters.  I saw at least a couple more hanging curves in the process, though.  Gotta think if Melancon is finally fully healthy, it's only a matter of time until he takes over the sole Closer role, sooner than later.

*********************************************************************************

The Win allowed the 3'rd place Giants to keep pace with the NL West leading D'Backs who beat the Pirates 9-3.  The Giants trail the Snakes by 4 games.  The 2nd place Dodgers were idle to slip to 2 games behind the D'Backs.  The Rockies topped the Mets 6-4 to remain 4.5 games behind the leaders.  The fading Padres fell to 8.5 games off the pace in last place. The Giants also again reached the .500 mark at 38-38
