The Giants played at [insert ballpark], where [insert name of Giants starter] pitched very well. Unfortunately, the Giants couldn’t create enough offense to score runs for [name of said pitcher] because [name of veteran(s)] were in the lineup preventing [name of prospect(s)/bench player(s)] who should be in the game. In the end, another one run deficit became insurmountable and they lost.
Good. Because if you tweak a few things, that’s what happened tonight.
One mistake pitch to Chipper Jones ended up in a loss for Tim Lincecum.
The offense went 0-for-5 with runners in scoring position.
The offense drew a total of 1 walk.
Brandon Belt was on the bench.
I can keep going on about every terrible part of the game, but it’s summed up in 3 words: that game sucked.
