Game Wrap 4/19/2014: Padres 3 Giants 1

The Giants flushed another strong starting pitching performance down the drain as the offense again failed to produce.  Key Lines:

Michael Morse- 1 for 3, HR(3).  BA= .302

Tim Hudson- 7 IP, 8 H, 2 R, 0 BB, 4 K.  ERA= 2.40.  Huddy pitches at least 7 more innings without issuing a walk for his 4'th consecutive start.  I think ties somebody for a record.  Alas, it was in a losing cause!

The top 3 hitters in the lineup, Pagan, Pence and Posey went  combined 0 for 12.  Can't win with that!

The loss dropped the Giants record to 10-8.  The Dodgers outlasted the D'Backs 8-6 to go 1 game up in the NL West at 11-7.

Tim Lincecum tries to be the stopper of a 3 game losing streak facing lefty Robbie Erlin tomorrow afternoon.

  1. From the AP story on

    "Hudson joins Grover Cleveland Alexander (six games in 1923) and Tiny Bonham (four games in 1944) as the only starting pitchers in the last 101 seasons to open a season by throwing four games of at least seven innings while not issuing a walk. ... Hudson has set the franchise record with 30 innings without a walk to open a season. ..."

    Bummer to lose another series to a team we should beat. Hopefully Timmah can avoid the sweep with an Easter win!
