This wasn't a completely miserable game.

Nah, I'm kidding, it totally was.

Jhoulys Chacin pitched very well, going 5 innings, allowing 5 hits, 1 walk, struck out two, and drew 5 groundouts to 4 flyouts. He even hit a double and then scored on a Josh Rutledge triple. Pitching was relatively good as a whole, allowing only those 2 runs (one on a Wilin Rosario Passed Ball) and 5 strikeouts to 2 walks. Sounds kind of like an Aaron Cook complete game, except there would be roughly 15 groundouts.

The offense sputtered, mustering only 4 hits and that 1 run despite 6 walks to complement the hits. Timing is everything, kids.

It was just one of those classic "god I hate playing the Giants in San Francisco" games, where Madison Bumgarner was downright human against the Rockies yet still only allowed 1 run. The kind of game where time either slows to a crawl (and I'm sure we can blame Brucy Bochy for that) or you just zone out and miss 3 innings of baseball.

The most exciting moment was Andrew Brown gunning down Brandon Crawford on a tight play at the plate. He might have been safe, but dammit, Crawford had like a million great plays against the Rockies tonight. I guarantee I'm not alone in saying that, as Crawford's a damn fine defensive SS. I'm pretty sure he and Brendan Ryan were in the same Cub Scout troop or something.

Anyhow, we lose, and that sucks. Let's get some wins and avoid that godawful 100-loss mark.
