San Francisco Giants shortstop expresses his displeasure after third base umpire Ryan Blankney called Crawford out on a check swing and later tosses him out of the ball game in Wed Aug 31, 2022 game against the San Diego Padres at Oracle Park in San Francisco (NBC Sports Bay Area photo grab)
On the SF Giants podcast with Michael:
#1 How much of an opportunity was lost when the Giants were swept by the San Diego Padres this week at Oracle Park.
#2 The Giants now slip 10.5 games behind third for the wild card spot would be safe to say that’s too much of climb to make up in one month’s time.
#3 How much frustrating is it for Giants shortstop Brandon Crawford who got tossed from Wednesday’s game after getting called out on a check swing in the bottom of the second inning.
#4 The Giants who are on a seven game losing streak and didn’t lose on Thursday because they had the day off. Giants manager Gabe Kapler said that patience is thin, tempers flare and the stress level is high.
#5 For Friday night the Giants host the Philadelphia Phillies for three games at Oracle Park the Phils are going with Kyle Gibson (9-5, 4.08) and for the Giants Alex Cobb (4-6, 3.81) a 7:15 PDT first pitch.
