Clearly we wanted nine or more, but the Giants had their longest winning streak in four years, winning eight in row. They hadn’t lost in more than a week, for God’s sake! That just can’t be sustained.
Through the last three wins in Cincinnati, the shutout sweep of the Dodgers and the first two torturous wins in Colorado, the Giants finally succumbed to normalization.
The streak brought some amazing stats, like almost 40 consecutive scoreless innings pitched, the longest homerun at Coors Field since 2004, and, well, no, Dinger didn’t impress us with anything, so nevermind.
The Giants have one more in Colorado tomorrow, but at least it’ll be a split before they leave for Milwaukee.
Oh, and by the way, the Giants have an absurd streak of 2 out RBI hits. But, it’s not even close to the record.
For those of you who were worried when they were 4-10, drink a few beers, sheesh.
