On the Giants podcast with Marko:
#1 Marko, Giants pitcher Anthony DeSclafani’s ankle had discomfort working a bullpen session in Oakland on Sunday under the watchful eye of manager Gabe Kapler and will return to the 10 day IL.
#2 Giants manage Gabe Kapler said he realized that DeSclafani couldn’t work the way he used to prior to the ankle injury and it’s hopeful he misses just one start.
#3 Giants pitcher Alex Wood who lost on Friday night to the Oakland A’s 4-1 lost his first game in nine games and the Giants were 11-0 with Wood pitching. Did Wood look like he was wearing thin after going five innings on Friday.
#4 LaMonte Wade Jr helped the Giants with a two run home run as a pinch hitter in the top of the ninth off A’s reliever Lou Trivino which proved to be the game winner on Saturday. Wade has just simply been clutch for the Giants this season.
#5 Giants have the day off Monday before taking on the New York Mets for a three game series on Tuesday night at Citi Field, starting pitcher for the Giants Sammy Long (1-1 ERA 5.72) and for the Mets Tyler Megill (1-2 ERA 3.21) a 4:10pm PDT first pitch.
