…. Ouch

The Giants lost to the Diamondbacks again, this time by a 5-4 score, as the bullpen let Matt Cain down. After Cain left with a 4-1 lead, having held the D’backs to one hit through six innings, Special Agent Jack Taschner combined with Vinnie Chulk to melt down in the seventh. The key hit of the game, and perhaps the series so far, came on a terrible two-strike slider that Taschner threw to Miguel Montero, immediately after Mike Krukow noticed that Montero had no chance to catch up to Taschner’s fastball. Montero dribbled it between Durham and Klesko to score the D’backs second run, put the tying run on base, and forced Bochy to bring in Chulk, who promptly ended the rally with a first-pitch, batting practice sinker that, after failing to sink, flew about 450 feet.

Reading the Chron, I got the feeling that Bochy and the Giants felt like the D’backs got a little lucky, and the relievers made a couple of mistakes. The mistake was the pitch call by Molina, a mistake so obvious the announcers calling the game saw it coming.

UPDATE: It was between Aurilia and Klesko. Durham had the day off. Doh! Thanks to Eddie for the correction.
