Game Wrap 7/21/2017: Padres 12 Giants 9

The Giants rode a roller coaster in this game blowing a 6-2 lead built in the first 4 innings, scoring 3 runs in the bottom of the 9'th inning to tie it only to lose it by giving up a 3-spot in the 11'th.  Key Lines:

Brandon Crawford SS- 2 for 5.  BA= .229.  Crawford is hitting .217 in July.

Hunter Pence RF= 3 for 5, 2B, SB(1).  BA= .252.  Pence also had an assist from the OF in this game.  He is hitting just .190 in July.

Conor Gillespie PH- 1 for 1, HR(1).  BA= .190.  Gillespie is 5 for 12 in July with 2 2B, and a dinger.

Jeff Samardzija RHP- 4.1 IP, 8 H, 5 R, 1 BB, 3 K's.  ERA= 5.05.  Samardzija seemed to be in good shape with a 6-2 lead going to the 5'th inning, then the roof caved in.  He could not get out off the inning and a parade of Giants relievers kept pouring gasoline on the fire over the next 3 innings until the Padres had scored 7 unanswered runs.

Hector Sanchez C(Padres)- 3 for 6, 2B, HR(7).  BA= .242.  Hector is 7 for 18 against the Giants this year.  He has 15 total hits on the season.   He is 8 for 44 agains the rest of the league.  4 of his 7 dingers have come against the Giants.  SSS randomness or "ownage"?


Matt Moore tries to break the Padres spell today against Luis Perdomo.

  1. Another unimaginable loss?
    Can you imagine Bruce Bochy looking into the heavens and telling Casey Stengel I know what you meant?
    These Giants are not the 1962 expansion Mets, they won't lose 120 games, they won't finish over 60 games out of 1st, they won't finish last 4 years in a row, they won't be an embarrassment to Abner Doubleday (who actually had nothing to do with inventing baseball), but 2017 WILL continue to break our hearts begun with Melancon's blown save in game 1 through last night's soaring start, pathetic middle, 9th inning heroics, and the 11th inning thud, all sandwiched around Pence's incredible catch -- oops, near catch!
    Can it get any worse?
    Probably, if not today, there are still 64 games until we can put this season in the books: RIP.

    (Can't anyone here play this game), Bochy has gone from
