…. Setback

The combination of Jason Christiansen and a sudden squeeze by home plate umpire Dan Iassogna brought the Giants back to earth, as they rallied and then were rallied upon by the Dodgers, losing 6-4 last night. The Dodgers ninth-inning rally was built upon two walks, one deserved (Jason Christiansen, who was unable to come within a foot of the plate on any of his five pitches), one courtesy of Iassogna, who turned his head at not one, but two third strike calls that would have put a dent in the Dodgers plans. So, instead of sweeping the Dodgers, which would have been sweet revenge.

Woody pitched well, the hitters were a bit overmatched by Brad Penny, and the Padres are coming.
