May 25: Matt Cain and the Giants take the Rockies. Leading by 3 going into the 7th the bullpen blows the lead and they go into the 9th tied. Armando Benitez comes in and decides to let the Rockies go for the win which they do.
May 27: Noah Lowry pitches alright against Colorado (4 innings though into the 5th before giving up 3 runs). Giants come back and tie it to give Lowry the no-decision. Brad Hennessy gives up two runs in the top of the 10th.
May 29: A fierce battle between Oliver Perez of the Mets and Tim Lincecum ensues which includes the Giants coming back and making it 3-3 (Ortmeier home run). The bullpen endures bases loaded jams in the 10th inning and perilous situations in the 9th and 11th. Winn helps scratch up a run in the top of the 12th only to see Armando Na-baulk-off void all of the Giants efforts.
June 3: Lincecum again on the hill pitches well against the Phillies until the bottom of the 7th. His teammates having scored 7 runs to go ahead 7-3 Lincecum and Taschner work together to collectively blow the four run lead and turn it into a 1 run lead. The Giants fight back, tying it into the 9th only to watch Correia give up a game ending home run.
June 4: The Giants just won’t seem to let Matt Cain win again (record somewhere around 2-10 when the 22 phenom starts) as the once again fight back against Arizona to tie the game in the 8th inning. Endure both the 9th and 10th tied before Correia gives up a walkoff home run in the bottom of the 10th.*
*Young will also drive in the only run in a D’backs in the Wednesday night victory over Matt Morris.
Five of the most painful losses of the year. I think I’m getting a little numb to it actually. 4 under .500 and last in the division. We’re going to keep wasting our starting pitching and I’m going to waste a nice summer.
Since most of you dear readers don’t speak baseball…The All-Nighter was probably the the most fun thing I’ve done this summer with my twice in 12 hours Pirates of the Caribbean: At World’s End feat.
