giants He only managed two goals on Friday night, losing 5-0 to the Dodgers who clinched the division earlier this week. A year after winning the division by one game, the Giants are 30 1/2 games behind the Dodgers and 4-13 against them.
The rivalry between two talented right-handers didn’t go as expected. Logan Web It only lasted four rounds, while the Giants were uninjured in five rounds against Dustin May. Only the pitch count saved them from a very embarrassing night.
May was removed before the sixth and Luis Gonzalez broke the no-no number with one hit Alex Physia that left the bat at 54mph and rolled across the pile so slowly that the second baseman Chris Taylor He didn’t have time to get rid of.
