Live Game Notes

  • Top 1st – Cueto
    • Not a good start to the Giants “must-win” homestand as Cueto allows hard contact and two runs.

    • SCORE: Rockies 2, Giants 0
  • Bottom 1st – Marquez
    • Solano’s at bat was the only one that where Marquez threw more than two balls.
    • Dick F7, Belt F7, Solano 1B, Ruf 5-3
  • Top 2nd
    • Cueto settling down and goes 1-2-3 on 11 pitches

  • Bottom 2nd
    • The Giants go down 1-2-3
    • Crawford K, Longo 5-3, Dubon 5-3

    • Pillar HR, Blackmon HBP, Story K, Fuentes FC, McMahon BB, Diaz L4
    • Score: Rockies 3, Giants 0
  • Bottom 3rd
    • The Giants threaten with back-to-back two-out hits but the third 4-3 ends the inning.
    • Bart 4-3, Basabe 4-3, Dick 1B, Belt 1B, Solano 4-3
  • Top 4th
    • Cueto balks in Hillard after Hampson moves him to third, the shimmy ain’t working tonight.
    • Hillard 2B, Hampson F8, Tapia K, Pillar K
    • Score: Rockies 4, Giants 0
  • Bottom 4th
    • Marquez is pitching well.
    • Ruf E6, Crawford FC, Longo 5-4, Dubon F7
  • Top 5th
    • Cueto walks McMahon to load the bases with just 1 out. Diaz’s BIG single ends Cueto’s rough night. Peralta does slightly better.

    • It didn’t feel like a super quick inning but it was 1-2-3 for Peralta

  • Bottom 6th
    • Giants go down easily, it’s not looking
    • Crawford 4-3, Longo F9, Dubon 6-3

    • Anderson quietly effective but he threw 25 pitches and the inning took foreverrrrrr

    • Alex Dickerson with his first home run as a father.

    • Crawford BB, Longo F9, Dubon BB, Flores Pop-out, Basabe P6
  • Top 9th
    • Crawford shows off his arm with the 6-3 to end the inning. I honestly didn’t think he’d make the throw since he was moving back so far

  • Bottom 9th
    • Dickerson becomes the second Giants player to be hit tonight
