Game Recap: PHI 9, SF 3

Please don't judge me too much for the poor quality of this recap. My partner Mack only just got back from his vacation with Mildred and Theodore, so I've had to write all the posts for awhile. I feel like Buster Posey after playing a week straight. I can't get 3 hits every night.

8th inning weirdness, anyone?

That was ugly. Chris Ray ended up allowing 4 ER without getting an out. A double error play by Mike Fontenot. Any time you thought the damage was going to be limited, it just got worse. This whole game ended up a lot like the SD disaster on Sunday, where hitters seemed to get a bloop single on an off balance swing.

Barry Zito was pretty good until the 5th inning, but he couldn't get out of the 6th. What ever he was doing right just came to an end. Even without Ryan Howard, the Phillies lineup is pretty good, thanks to annoying little gnats like Polanco and Victorino.

Aubrey Huff is going through a really bad stretch, but remember: he's 1st among all NL position players in WAR (baseball reference). Ever since Bruce Bochy bookmarked us and started listening to our advice, Buster Posey has been hitting very well in the 2 hole. You're welcome. And Pat Burrell definitely belongs hitting cleanup.

I'm starting to wonder about Jayson Werth. He's gonna get a big contract in the winter. Should the Giants give it to him? I'm moving towards "yes". More on this later in the week.
