Giants @ Rockies Game 2
This was another early afternoon at the ballpark. I went to the game with my parents and my little cousin which was really fun. WE went down early for batting practice but walked away with no balls, yet again. This was the third game in a row that I missed out on baseballs which is really starting to hurt me in the fact that I’m running out of baseballs for autographs.
After BP we headed over to the wall to get some autographs. I had my cousin with me so I tried to get her as many autographs as possible. She did end up getting Jonny Herrera and Josh Rutledge but we will slowly have to work on her ball and try to get more autographs.
This was the MLB debut for Matt McBride and so I was trying to get his autographs but didn’t end up getting him.
We headed up to our seats and watched the game. It was a shaky start for Francis who gave up 2 runs right away but settled down and sadly he only lasted 3 and 2/3rd innings and gave up 6 runs.
Josh Roenicke came in and pitched 3 and 1/3rd scoreless innings which has been great because he has been solid on most of his outings.
The Rockies bats started to come alive in the 6th inning when Josh Rutledge homered giving the Rockies their first run of the night. In the 7th McBride doubled which gave the Rockies another run and Jonny Herrera singled as the next batter scoring McBride.
The rest of the game was a complete mess and the Giants took advantage of the Rockies pitching and dominated us. The Rockies did end up scoring 3 more runs but compared to there 11 it wasn’t enough.
Matt McBride did have a good Debut going 2/4 with 1 RBI and 1 run scored. To me that was a decent debut! Good luck the rest of the season Matt!
My cousin took charge of the camera and so I have to give some of the credit to her for some of these. It was very tough tonight watching the pitching staff fall apart yet again but in the back of my mind I ask myself how much I can handle and take the rest of the season. Either way I will still be there supporting my team and go through the pain just like players.
The Giants take Game 2, 11-6, over the Rockies.
