5/13/2014 Braves @ GIANTS Gameball and Joker

This game was pretty uneventful, so this is going to be brief.
The Giants got shutout 5-0, and we saw a return of wasted opportunities and impatient hitting.

Hunter Pence

Hunter had a decent game tonight, collecting a pair of hits, and he made a perfect throw that should've thrown Heyward out, but Posey couldn't get the tag down.

TIP OF THE CAP: emoticon

Vogey: Vogey did well before he tired out in the sixth inning. He ended up striking out eight, but he lost it in the sixth, and that cost him severely.

Yusmeiro Petit: Who threw a nice 1-2-3 ninth with a pair of strikeouts.

Buster Posey

Posey went 0-for-4, but that wasn't the big story.
I have absolutely no clue how Posey missed the tag on Heyward. Pence's throw had him beat by a mile, and yet Heyward was still able to slide around Posey's glove.
As much as I cringe while watching Hector Sanchez hit, he is a far superior defensive catcher to Posey, and I firmly believe that he would've made the tag.


Ed Hickox: That zone was brutal tonight. He kept calling pitches that were well of the plate strikes, and I utterly can't stand umpires who make makeup calls, and Hickox made a lot of those.
He's a cop, and his police buddies ]let him know when he misses calls, and that seems to be a lot. Though they say he's never missed a call on the force.
He's not the best umpire out there, but he's certainly seems to be a far-better cop than Frank Drebin, so maybe he should stick to wearing the badge in the summer.

Postgame fans: I know I'm being redundant, but we lost 5-0, go home, folks!
