#1 The Giants (1-1) opened up their season in Seattle on Thursday night for the start of a three game series their most recent game Saturday night they were shutout 4-0 by the Mariners (1-1) pitching staff of starter Chris Flexan, relivers Kendall Graveman, Anthony Miseiewicz, and Rafael Montero.
#2 The Giants simply couldn’t get any hitting going on Saturday against the four Mariner pitchers was this a game that the M’s pitching staff had the Giants off balance or they were just that good.
#3 The Giants did pick up their first win of the season in game 2 of the series against the Mariners with a 6-3 win on Friday night. The Giants picked up the bulk of their run production in the sixth and seventh inning scoring two and three runs off M’s starter Yusei Kikuchi and reliever Drew Steckenrider.
#4 It’s not too often the Giants get a Sunday off and instead of making this a four game series it was a three game series giving the Giants Sunday off a travel day of sorts.
#5 The Giants open up a three game series against the San Diego Padres starting tonight at Petco Park, the Giants will start Anthony DeScalfani and for the Padres Adrian Morejon. This will be Desclfani’s first game pitching in a regular game for the Giants.
