Game Recap: COL 6, SF 1

You can't win 'em all, and the Giants were never close to winning this one.

The offense never got going. Against Ubaldo Jimenez, it seemed like they were just going through the motions. Maybe they resigned themselves to the fact that they couldn't beat Jimenez. That doesn't make too much sense, though, because so far in the 2nd half he has a 6.41 ERA and 1.744 WHIP. Anyway, they managed to get just 5 hits, most of them with no runners on and 2 outs or something like that. Any hit they got just didn't come in an important spot. This says it all: Andres Torres was 0-for-4 with 4 K's. That's just not normal. The offense did one thing right, when Buster Posey doubled to score Aubrey Huff, but...that was all. Nothing more. I guess they were too tired from scoring 10 runs a night ago. Sure would've been nice to save some of those runs for today.

Madison Bumgarner also wasn't very sharp. He threw lots of strikes and maybe too many. He never fooled anyone while allowing 9 H and 4 ER with just 3 K's. It was bad. Everything was bad. I don't want to talk about it anymore.

I can't help myself though. I like feeling depressed. So here's something else. Denny Bautista came in and guessed it, terrible. He hit 2 batters and gave up 2 HRs in his 1 2/3 IP. He's gone pretty soon right? I really don't know. We've said it before, but Bochy seems to like him, which should tell you a lot about Bruce Bochy.

Buster Posey won the NL Player of the Month, by the way. That's something to be happy about. Congratulations to him, he deserves it. He is a manchild.

Like I said, the offense just looked tired and unenergized today, just the 2nd game after a day off. We are on an unbelievable hot streak right now, but it doesn't mean we'll never lose. I'm not worried about that. I just hope we don't look this sluggish in Atlanta against a very good Braves team.


  1. Glad I was at work and missed this game,one look at my Twitter timeline was all I needed to find out we played poorly. Oh well maybe we needed a good beating so we can open up strong against the Braves.

  2. Yeah I just hope the offense doesn't look so lazy in Atlanta
