Game Wrap 5/31/2017: Nationals 3 Giants 1

Ryan Zimmermann hit a 3-run HR off Matt Cain in the first inning.  The Giants won the rest of the game 1-0, but that doesn't count.  Key Lines:

Matt Cain- 5 IP, 5 H, 3 R, 1 BB, 3 K's, GO/AO= 6/2.  ERA= 4.53.  Giants starters have tended to fall behind early then pitch pretty well later in the game.  Problem with that scenario is the Giants just don't have a come-from-behind offense.

Lineup- 5 different Giants had 1 hit each.  3 of the 5 hits were doubles by Nunez, Panik and Belt.  That got them 1 run.


The Giants have a travel day before starting a 3 game series in Philadelphia with Ty Blach facing Jared Eickoff in the first game tomorrow night.


  1. Would you expect the Giants to break out against Jerad Eickhoff?

    1. I think it more likely that Eickoff shuts them out than they break out against him.
