I don’t have much to say. Just a very frustrating game, as illustrated by the win probability graph:
- The Giants drew three consecutive walks to load the bases in the fourth inning, and Aaron Rowand promptly took two strikes then grounded out.
- Mat Latos took a no-hitter into the fifth inning.
- The Giants committed three errors.
- Ramon Ramirez blew the lead in the ninth.
Hector Sanchez got his first major-league hit, though, which was nice to see. Anyway, the Giants are now two games back in the NL West. Things look bleak, but — for what it’s worth – Baseball Prospectus still has their odds of making the playoffs above 75% (well… we’ll see where they’re at after tonight).
On another note, I’ve been nominated for an SF Weekly Web Award apparently. It’s cool just to be nominated, but if you feel inclined, go ahead and vote for me here under “5. Best San Francisco Giants Blog.” Much appreciated.
