Game Wrap 7/19/2016: Red Sox 4 Giants 0

Jake Peavy gave up a couple of longballs and Rick Porcello shut down the Giants offense as they remained winless in the official second half.  Key Lines:

Denard Span- 2 for 4.  BA= .252.  Span's bat seems to be warming up a bit.  4 for 12 over his last 3 games.

Angel Pagan- 2 for 4.  BA= .289.  Top of the order went a combined 4 for 8 while the rest of the lineup got just 1 hit.  Is it just me, or is the Giants biggest need at the trade deadline a middle-of-the-order bat? I mean, I love Brandon Crawford, but he's not a #5 hitter.  With Hunter Pence's rehab progressing in fits and starts, I don't know if they can count on him being healthy again this season.

Jake Peavy- 6 IP, 3 H, 4 R, 1 BB, 6 K's.  ERA= 5.15.   4 baserunners, 4 Runs.  Now that's rough!  Those 3-run dingers will get you!  Especially when your offense is in the ditch.


The Loss cut the Giants lead over the Dodgers in the NL West to 4.5 games as the Bad Guys outscored the Nationals 8-4.


Matt Cain comes off the DL tonight to face…..Drew Pomeranz.  This could get ugly!
