Game Wrap 10/2/2015: Rockies 9 Giants 3

The Giants were trounced by the Rockies on Willie Mac Award night.  Key Lines:

Matt Duffy- 1 for 4.  BA= .297.  Matt Duffy was the very deserving Willie Mac Award winner, although a few other Giants players could have legitimately won too.  He's the first rookie in the 35 year history of the award to win it.  .300 is a bit of an overrated number, but it seems unlikely that Matt will get his BA back up over it in the final 2 games.

Brandon Crawford- 2 for 4, 2B.  BA= .256.  Crawford was the other guy who has never won the Willie Mac Award who I thought had a real shot at it.  Maybe the injury hurt his chances or maybe Duffy's story was just too compelling?

Jarrett Parker- 1 for 4, 2B.  BA= .333.  I read that Bochy made up his mind about giving a roster spot to  Matt Duffy based on his play at the end of 2014.  I get the feeling that Parker has already made in impact on the Giants offseason plans and their thinking about next year's roster.

Mac Williamson- 1 for 4, 3B.  BA= .231.  The triple was a bomb to the base of the wall in Triples Alley.  Big Mac made it to 3B standing up.  He could probably use another half season of AB's in AAA, but man, the future looks bright!

Chris Heston- 3.2 IP, 8 H, 8 R, 1 BB, 3 K's.  ERA= 3.95.  Heston needed to make a statement about next year's rotation and roster.  This game may have made the Giants wonder if he can be counted on in 2016.

Cody Hall- 2 IP, 0 H, 0 R,  0 BB, 3 K's.  ERA= 3.24.  Strong outing for Hall who has not allowed a run in his last 3 appearances spanning 4.1 IP.  Bullpen is crowded for next year, but he should be one of the first callups.

Brett Bochy- 1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 1 K.  ERA= 0.00.  You can pretty much say the same thing about Brett Bochy as Cody Hall.  Not enough room in the bullpen next year.

Jake Peavy starts today while Tim Hudson is honored before the game.
