Game Wrap 6/19/2017: Braves 9 Giants 0

Another city, another ballpark, another series, another wretched game.  The Giants rolled into ATL and did a faceplant in the dirt of the new ballpark, losing by a forfeit score.  Key Lines:

Johnny Cueto RHP- 7 IP, 5 H, 2 R, 0 BB, 4 K, GO/AO= 10/0.  ERA= 4.42.  Cueto showed up to pitch but the Giants gave him no run support that the bullpen blew a close game wide open.  If Cueto didn't want out before tonight, I bet he does now!  If he does, he'll try his darndest to put a few more of these together to generate some interest from a contending team at the trade deadline.

Derek Law RHP- 0.0 IP, 5 H, 4 R, 1 BB, 0 K.  ERA= 5.40.  Law has hit a wall.  After posting a 2.91 ERA in April and a 3.27 in May, he's ballooned to 13.50 in June. He has allowed 8 ER in just 2 IP, over his last 3 appearances.  Might be time to start asking questions about how his arm feels.


Matt Moore tries to get his ship righted tomorrow facing Julio Tehran.


  1. I can't believe it. If you would have told me back in spring training that the Giants were going to be 20 games under .500 by June 19th I would have thought you were crazy.

  2. Law's performance was worse than his line: with two outs he allowed both of Osich's runners to score. Something must be wrong there. Not a good outlook for a guy with 1 TJ behind him.
    Osich walked the first batter then got 3 ground balls sandwiched around an intentional walk to Kemp. Maybe he deserved better.
    Maybe Melancon deserved better the day before: after getting the first out, he was 1-2, 2-2, and 0-2 on the next 3 batters before the 1st pitch HR which surprised no one at that point, no matter that we all were shaking our heads.

  3. Crick up; Law down!
