Game Wrap 7/27/2016: Reds 2 Giants 1

Throughout the first half of the season, the Giants found ways to win with different heroes almost every  game.  So far in the second half, they are finding ways to lose with different goats almost every game.  Today they got a great start from Madison Bumgarner, but were sunk by some sloppy fielding and an almost complete lack of offense.  Key Lines:

Conor Gillaspie- 1 for 3, HR(4).  BA= .250.   You just aren't going to score a lot of runs when your #2, 3 and 4 hitters go a combined 0 for 12.  Add in the 0 for 4 from the leadoff guy and yeah, you get the picture!

Madison Bumgarner- 8 IP, 5 H, 2 R, 1 ER, 0 BB, 9 K's.  ERA= 2.09.  I think it's time to retire the cained meme and find a new one.  Madison Bumgarner got bummed today!  Bumgarner has a 2.59 ERA over his last 7 starts and has a 2-3 record to show for it. Yup, bumming has replaced caining!


Dodgers lost to the Rays 3-1 so the Giants lead in the NL West remains at 2.5 games.


Johnny Cueto tries to get the 4 game series against the Nationals off to a great start tomorrow facing Tanner Roark.
