So, after 13 innings, we lost 3 of 4 games to Atlanta.  The final score, 5 – 4 Braves.

We played 2 competitive games and 2 where the team really wasn’t in it.  I guess that’s an improvement over last year, and the year before that, when the team mostly wasn’t in it, but it’s not much of an improvement.  The Giants wind up 21 – 28.  Although, 49 games into 2018, the Giants were 24 – 25.

Madison Bumgarner was on the mound, he threw 102 pitches, got through 6 innings, gave up 2 (1 solo shot home run) on 6 hits.  He walked 2 and struck out 6.  Another fine effort.  Another fine effort to no avail.  Mark Melancon came in, pitched a scoreless 7th and Tony Watson gave up 2 in the 8th. That tied the game.

The Giants, meanwhile, showed some, although not a lot, of offense.  A single and a double by Belt and Longoria, respectively, put runners on 1st and 3rd.  A wild pitch by the Braves starter, Kevin Gausman, plated Belt and Longoria scored on a Donovan Solano sac fly.  The Braves got 1 in th e4th and a high pop-up that got blown out of the park in the 5th to tie the score at 2 each.  The Giants answered in the bottom of that inning with a Panik double and a Duggar single, and the Tyler Austin homered with no one on in the 7th.

Following Watson in the 8th, the Giants used Smith, Dyson and Gott for an inning each (which is probably a good thing, considering Arizona shows up tomorrow before a travel day Monday.  Reyes Moronta (who, by the way, dyed his hair yellow) pitched 2 and got the loss, but you really can’t pin it on him.  Have you seen Atlanta?  Freddie Freeman, Brian McCann, Nick Markakis and a bunch of 21 year-old superstars.  Austin Riley has hit 5 home runs and has a batting average of damn near .400.  He’s been in the major leagues since May 15.  Our rookie is 25 yo Steven Duggar who has a sub-.300 OBP.  You give Atlanta an extra four innings without scoring a run, they will beat you.
