It’s unfortunate to record a loss after such a great performance by our starting pitcher, tonight by Tim Hudson who had another fantastic start and also had one of the four hits by the Giants. Today he became the only Giants pitcher in history to pitch 29 innings without issuing a walk.
Pablo Sandoval (0-3 tonight, .171 BA) hasn’t been doing anything. Bochy moved his to the fifth spot in the lineup to take some pressure off him but that didn’t seem to help.
The 8th inning was just an example of the way the offense has been performing as of lately. Gregor Blanco struck out looking, Brandon Crawford swung at the first pitch for an out, then Hector Sanchez swung at his first pitch for another out. The offense struck out seven times tonight against San Diego.
Can Barry Bonds please report to San Diego? It’s looking like our offense needs a bit of help and advice in order to get back on track and start hitting again.
