I go on vacation and come back to the San Francisco Giants being in a BIG TIME FUNK! They went 3-7 in this homestand, and have lost 3-consecutive home series for the first time since May 12 – June 18, 2008.
The Giants have 19 consecutive solo homers. That matches the record set by the 1914 Phillies. That’s just 1 RBI per homer. I’m sure if we can get some guys on base these homers could help spark our offense…
Carlos Beltran (strained wrist) is listed as day-to-day, and will likely be in the Giants lineup Friday against the Marlins. Beltran has sat out 3 games in a row so far. Let’s hope we can get him back out on the field, so we can hope his bat can spark something or maybe run into a 2-run homer to stop that 19 solo homer streak!
Since the All Star Break (Stats – Prior to today’s game) – Giants have scored the fewest runs in the Majors (73 R – 2.92 Runs a game). They also have the lowest AVG W/RISP since the All Star Break (.189)
Today was the 60th sellout for the Giants this year, and that just means more and more people to see the slumping Giants live at the ballpark.
I’m sure these Giants are happy to be on the road, maybe that’s what the doctor ordered to get them out of their funk!
