Game Wrap 7/2/2014: Cardinals 2 Giants 0

Ryan Vogelsong was BABIP'd for 2 runs in the 3'rd inning and the Giants offense sputtered against Adam Wainwright.  Ballgame.  Key Lines:

Joe Panik- 2 for 3.  BA= .231.  Panik now has 4 hits in his last 10 AB after an 0 for 12 drought following his first MLB start in Arizona.

Ryan Vogelsong-  7 IP, 6 H, 2 R, 1 BB, 8 K's, GO/AO= 8/1.  ERA= 3.86.   4 of the 6 hits came in the fateful 3'rd inning when the Cardinals admittedly hit the ball sharply on all 4, but 3 were ground balls that could just have easily been right at someone for an out or a DP.  The rest of the game, he was every bit a match for Waino.  In Vogey's last 2 starts he has gone 13 IP, 11 H, 3 R, 1 BB, 15 K's.  Both were losses.

Brian Wilson brought his gas can out to the mound in the 8'th inning of the Dodgers' game with Cleveland.  Their 5-4 loss keeps the Giants in first place in the NL West by 0.5 games.

Madison Bumgarner tries to win the rubber match of the series facing Carlos Martinez this afternoon.


  1. LAD Wilson has an ERA over 5.80 and a WHIP of 1.875, also a W/9 of 6.9. He's getting $10M to do this.

  2. I feel better about our pitching, but our offense is still out of sync with Pagan out.

    With Belt close to returning, and, well, I don't know how to put this, Scutaro rehabbing, or rather, not completely without news, the scoring, or lack of it...well, maybe we are inching toward the end of a very long and dark tunnel...
