On the Giants podcast with Miguel:

1 The Giants opened the short two game series with the Kansas City Royals to a 8-1 loss and the Royals Whit Merifield got a bases loaded triple that pretty much put the kibosh on starter Ty Blach’s outing on Tuesday night at AT&T Park

2 Blach got touched up for seven runs, ten hits, in 5 plus innings of work on Tuesday and raised his ERA to 4.24 and the Royals six run sixth inning pretty much done in Blach

3 No matter who manager Bruce Bochy brings in to pitch they’ve struggled and Bochy pretty much is leaving pitchers out to fight their way out of jams such was the case on Tuesday night when Blach couldn’t get out the sixth and on Wednesday afternoon. Giants starter Johnny Cueto who surrendered three runs in the top of the third in a 5-1 game pitched his way out of the top of the fifth leaving the bases loaded and surrendering no runs but was lifted in the too of the sixth after reaching his pitch count.

4 The Twins series saw San Francisco lose two out of three plus an impressive four hit 4-0 shutout from Twins starter Ervin Santana on Friday night

5 The Royals have won three straight coming into Wednesday’s action including the 8-1 seven run victory over the Giants on Tuesday. KC is only five games back AL Central
