On the Giants podcast with Morris:

#1. How much did that four-run inning hurt Giants starter Jeff Samardzija to set back the Giants?

#2 Samardzija threw for 92 pitches and walked three batters. He did have respective command until the sixth inning when the Padres scored the four runs.

#3 Padres starter Eric Lauer gave up three earned runs and two home runs. His effort was good enough to hold off the Giants by runs for the 8-4 win.

#4 Acknowledgements during the game going to Giants manager Bruce Bochy, who had a design tribute unveiled during the game recognizing his work as Giants manager, including three World Series championships. Pablo Sandoval made what is considered his last at-bat as a Giant in the seventh inning to a standing ovation.

#5 With the loss, the Giants are now seven games back in the NL Wild Card. At one time, the Giants were down just a game and a half.
