In their four game series over the weekend in Washington the Giants scored a grand total of 3 runs and still split the series! That is simply crazy. It was a weird series and the Giants are starting to pay the price for all the injuries to their right-handed bats, particularly to the likes of Evan Longoria and Darin Ruff, two guys who were hot and key ingredients of the team’s success.
The Giants just concluded a six-game road trip against two of the worst teams in baseball (Texas and Washington) and went 3-3 as the Dodgers gained ground in the NL West.
The Giants continue to play at least .500 ball on the road and that is all we can ask for, especially with all the injuries (see above).
