On the Giants podcast with Marko Ukalovic:
#1 Marko it was just too much Cincinnati Reds (25-47) on Sunday afternoon at Oracle Park where the San Francisco Giants (39-33) go lit up 10-3 thanks to a seven run rally by the Reds that pretty much put it away.
#2 Giant starter Anthony DeSclafani was touched up in just 2.2 innings of work, giving up seven hits and seven earned runs to say he was struggling was an understatement.
#3 The Reds Nick Senzel said everybody in the line up was contributing and when that happens the Reds could be a dangerous club. Senzel wound up with three singles in the ball game.
#4 Reds pitcher Terrry Mahle did his part on holding the Giants back in his starting role with 6.2 innings of work, four hits, three earned runs, just one walk and seven strikeouts.
#5 The Giants have Monday off and open up a brief two game series against the Detroit Tigers (28-44) on Tuesday and Wednesday. For Tuesday the Tigers will be sending Tarik Skubal (5-5, 5.63) against the Giants Carlos Rodon (6-4, 2.70) a 6:40 pm PDT first pitch at Oracle Park.
