To error is human but, the Giants had too many errors that the Rockies took advantage of tonight. The games should have ended with a 2-1 win and been happy. However, Brandon Crawford had two throwing errors to open up the fourth inning. They would have been tremendous plays if they would have been outs but, not only did he not get the outs, he overthrew the ball and gave up 90-feet. This was a theme of this game. Four times they gave up 90-feet and to top it off the go-ahead run for the Rockies was a balk.

Andrew Susac proving he belongs with a home run and excellent defense. He executed a strike-em-out-throw-em-out double play. He had back-to-back plays at the plate in the same inning and just played a good game.

The strike zone was in contention and Bruce Bochy was thrown out of the game on a called strike three to Buster Posey in the eighth inning. The ball was clearly too low and had been called a ball before and after the at bat.

Jake Peavy pitched well again for the Giants but the offense could not get him over the hump of the defensive miscues.
