The Giants losing percentage climbed to .612 with yesterday’s dreary 7-2 defeat at the hands of the Royals. Johnny Cueto got kicked in the cojones by the slugging Royals. With Cueto’s not quite mediocre numbers (5-6, 4.57) it appears the chances of getting top players in return for the Dominican Dreadlocks in a trade are diminishing in perfect proportion to the Giants chances of winning the division this year.
The mighty Royals, one of the worst hitting teams in baseball, hit 3 long balls and raked 16 hits in the game.
Mike Krukow said Willie Mays Field was playing small in yesterday’s warm, sunny, and wind-less conditions. The Giants and Johnny Beisbol played smaller.
The Giants completed a 1-4 homestand looking desultory in all aspects of the game.
