Game Wrap 9/6/2016: Giants 3 Rockies 2

Jeff Samardzija threw a dominant start and the Giants scratched out single runs in the 8'th and 9'th innings for a come-from-behind win.  Key Lines:

Eduardo Nunez- 1 for 4, HR(15).  BA= .280.  Nunez drove in the first Giants run in the 3'rd inning with a HR to left.  He drove in the second run on a groundout.

Kelby Tomlinson- 1 for 3, BB.  BA= .288.  Kelby didn't get a whole lot of respect this year from the Giants, but he might be the toughest out on the roster, especially now that Duffy is gone.  Maybe he can show some of the other hitters what a tough out looks like.

Jeff Samardzija- 7 IP, 4 H, 2 R, 1 BB, 9 K's.  ERA= 4.00.  Not matter what happens this year, Samardzija's recovery from a brutal mid-season slump bodes well for the remaining 4 years on his contract.

Santiago Casilla- 1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 0 K, Save(31).  ERA= 3.21.  I guess Closers close and Casilla is the Closer.


The Dodgers topped the D'Backs 5-2 to remain 4 games up in the NL West.  The Giants remain 0.5 games ahead of the Cardinals in the race for the first Wild Card playoff berth and 1.5 games ahead of the Mets for the second.


Albert Suarez tries for a series win today against Jorge De La Rosa.
