6/13/2014 Rockies @ GIANTS Gameball and Joker


That was the Giants' worst loss of the year, and hopefully, it will be something we can put behind us soon.
Things looked great, but I guess the demons of a full moon on Friday the 13th got to this team tonight.
This is also sadly the kind of game that is heaven for writers, because it gives us a lot to write about.

GAMEBALL:

Michael Morse

Morse was definitely the player of the game tonight. He had a pair of two-out RBI hits, one that tied the game in the third inning, and the other, a double that gave the Giants the lead in the fifth.

Hunter Pence: Pence has showed that he didn't put up great numbers last season, because he was in a contract year. He has two hits, and he knocked in the first run of the game for the Giants.

Timmy: Not a bad outing tonight. Other than the two runs he gave up in the third, he kept the Rockies at bay, as he struck out six over six innings.

Juan Gutierrez: Who pitched nicely out of the bullpen.

JOKER:

Sergio Romo

Romo melted away tonight, and so did his chances of going to the All-Star Game.
You all saw it. The Giants were leading 4-2 going into the the ninth, and the Rockies put up a five spot against Romo for a 7-4 win. It took only a few batters to explode his ERA to [sign in to see URL].
Romo has been way too Wilson-like this year. He has made his outings extremely dramatic, and his ERA has suffered.

SMACK OF THE STICK: emoticon

Brandon Hicks: Hicks got a hattrick tonight, but since Joe Panik is not on the 40-man roster, Hicks will be in the lineup for a while.

Tim Flannery: Why didn't he send Adrianza to third? Adrianza was already around second when Josh Rutledge picked up the ball in the bullpen, and I sincerely think that Adrianza could've scored on the shallow fly ball from Sandoval.
 
Angel Pagan: Talk about boneheaded, there was no need to make a throw to third, and it allowed Morneau, the tying run, to get into scoring position.

Ehire Adrianza: He did a good job tagging Michael McKenry out on the pickoff play. Only one thing went wrong, he held on tot he ball too long, thus LeMahieu scored from third.
Look on the bright side, with Casilla and Belt slated to return soon, he and Kontos are going to be toast.

FINAL THOUGHTS:

This game really reminded me of the Friday night, full moon game on ]Aug. 7, 2009 against the Reds.
Just like tonight, the Giants had a late two-run lead, and Romo began the implosion on the mound that led to an ugly loss.
Also, just like tonight, Mike Winters was the home plate umpire in that game.

Hey sfg13,

I went to bed after the CRockies half of the 8th, thinking the game was in the bag. I got up in the middle of the night, and checked my phone to see the final score and went WHAAAAAAT?!?!?!?!?

I guess every reliever stains his sheets from time to time, but this was a game the Giants may eventually regret, should the Rockies go on a roll and climb back into the race.

Put this piece of manure in a bag, toss it into the bottom of the trash bin, cover it with more manure, and forget it ever happened.

I guess the good news is that Timmy was hitting 94 on the radar. [sign in to see URL] he could just eliminate those 20 pitch innings....
