Once again, I had tickets to attend the game. Once again, workload triumphed and the game turned out to be a KNBR background distraction. And what a happy distraction this one was! Here, with pleasure, is your 100-words-or-less game report:
Cueto pitches. Great hair. Great shimmy. No sign of blisters. He only gives up one run. And also this happened:
First run walked in. Second run scored on a wild pitch. Can this game get any better? Third run scored on a Crawford sacrifice fly. Then…. Hernandez homers! Belt homers! Sandoval homers (three runs score)! Crawford homers! Belt’s single so Hundley scores feels like an anticlimax. The bullpen didn’t suck and didn’t give up any runs.
Giants score as many home runs in this game as they did in entire 2018 season (please don’t fact check this).
Final score: Giants 10, Mariners 1.
