Game Recap: LA 8, SF 2

I hope this is rock bottom. The Giants need this to be rock bottom. They have just been swept by the hated Dodgers and have now lost five games in a row. They sit 5.5 games out of first place and they need to pick things up fast. Next is the toughest road trip of the season, with 11 straight games in Colorado, Milwaukee, and Washington. They can't afford to be slumping so hard when the NL West figures to be close and competitive all year long.

I guess I can talk about this game a little bit. There's nothing to say about the offense. It wasn't good again and I'd be surprised if Bochy doesn't sit down and consider some major changes. As for the pitching, Jonathan Sanchez was doing pretty well until he allowed a single that should have been picked up by Burrell but instead got past him and allowed 2 runs to score. He proceeded to allow 4 ER in 5 innings. Another not so good outing from a starting pitcher. Usually the starting pitching can make up for our lackluster offense, but not on this homestand. Absolutely nothing was working.

Maybe going on the road can light a fire under the Giants? I'm just grasping at straws at this point.
