Live Tweet Journal: Rockies @ Giants (9/23)

Pregame Zoom Notable Quotable

Basabe OUT, Duggar IN

Press Dining

  • I didn’t have a big lunch so I was very excited to see what the kitchen staff had cookin’ for tonight. I was pleasantly surprised by seeing Spaghetti and Meatballs on the menu.
  • The noodles were as expected pretty basic, but my biggest critic comes from the sauce. The taste of the sauce was fine, as the problem comes from the amount of it that was present. There wasn’t any! It was almost criminal how little red sauce they served with the noodles. The meatballs (two in total) were impressive in size and fairly tasty but they were a little dry if I’m being honest.
  • The off-brand twinkies were amazing too, by the way.

Live Game Notes

    • Blackmon 2B, (Logan Webb pitching) Fuentes 6-3, McMahon 5-3, Diaz E6, Hilliard 4-3
  • Bottom 2nd
    • STILL waiting for Joey Bart’s first major league home run, but at least the Giants advanced to third

    • SCORE: Giants 0, Rockies 0
  • Top 3rd
    • A great throw from Joey Bart ends the inning, but not after Webb allows a run (Story’s single was a rocket: 106.4 mph)

    • Score: Rockies 1, Giants 0

    • Tapia (an outfielder but DH’ing tonight) doubles in Hampson and then makes Joey Bart look foolish. Tapia had a large lead at second and baited Bart to throw to second – and as soon as he did – Tapia took off for third.
