On the podcast with Matt:

It seems when San Francisco pitcher Madison Bumgarner goes out and pitches he goes through all his paces but can’t win on his pitching day for the lack of better word hitting. It’s almost like Matt Cain de ja vue all over again, the Giants just can’t score any runs and three runs over seven innings and the Giants couldn’t put any runs on the board for Bumgarner. It’s weird not seeing a win next to his name, it’s still early in the season but this many games under he still hasn’t picked up a W and thats because the bats haven’t backed him at all.

The numbers aren’t that bad on the offense, Joe Panik is hitting .306, Hunter Pence is hitting .340, Brandon Crawford .325, Eduardo Nunez .357, and Nick Hundley .286. Their getting the hits their just not getting the timely hits. With Posey being out for a little bit, Crawford with the death of his sister in law, it’s been tough for San Francisco not to have impact bats all in the line up.

On Friday night it was a pitchers duel for the first five innings with the A’s Kendall Graveman going five innings, one run earned and two walks. The A’s on defense third baseman Trevor Plouffe had trouble throwing to first base and first baseman Ryon Healy had had trouble fielding the throws. The A’s took a 7-2 loss against the Astros. Putting Healy at first base doesn’t seem to help he’s having trouble either seeing the ball which end is up.
