On the San Francisco Giants podcast with Michael:

#1 Michael, talk about how disappointed San Francisco Giants starting pitcher Logan Webb had to be retiring 16 straight Colorado Rockie batters after giving up two runs in the first inning in seven plus innings of work in a 5-3 final. Reliever Jose Alvarez allowed two runs in relief for the loss.

#2 The Rockies CJ Cron broke the 3-3 deadlock with a two run homer it was a monster shot 454 feet in the eighth inning and helped hand the Rockies their first win after losing 12 straight games to the Giants. What are some of the successes the Giants have over the Rockies and how big a role did the Cron home run have in changing the direction of the game.

#3 Michael what was the pitch that Alvarez to Cron for the home run and did it seem like Alvarez struggled or did the Rockies just see some good pitches to hit off him.

#4 Rockies rookie catcher Brian Serven on his first big league pitch fouled the ball behind home plate where his family was sitting. The ball was picked up by a fan and the Rockies communications department traded the ball for a signed Brendan Rogers signed ball and Serven’s parents Jim and Laura received the foul ball. For Serven that had to be a special at bat to foul one off and his parents get the ball back.

#5 The Giants have Thursday off and will host the San Diego Padres at Oracle Park on Friday night at 7:15pm PDT. The Padres will start LHP Sean Manaea (2-3 ERA 3.77) and he’ll be opposed by Giants RHP Jakob Junis (1-1 ERA 1.74). How do you see this match up Friday night?
