How painful was the game? you ask. Here are several low lights.
- Giant fans to the left of me, Giant fans to the right of me, stuck in the middle with you (not you, it’s just the song).
- When the score was tied at 1-1, the Giants scored the go ahead run on a passed ball.
- When the score was tied at 2-2 in the 10th, the Giants scored the go ahead run with our hall of fame-bound closer who really should retire on the mound, trying to preserve the tie.
- In the bottom of the 10th, the Padres get 3 consecutive hits but can’t score. Note to Bud Black: When the game is on the line in the bottom of the 10th and your lead base runner isn’t fast enough to send home from scoring position on a hit, consider putting in a pinch runner. Oh wait! Do the Padres have anyone that could be used in that capacity besides Greg Maddux?
