On the Giants podcast with Daniel:
#1 Daniel, the San Francisco Giants (14-11) dropped their fourth straight game after getting swept in LA they opened a four game series against the St Louis Cardinals (15-10) on Thursday night and lost by six runs 7-1.
#2 Cardinal catcher Yadier Molina who hasn’t hit for an RBI all season got his ills cured belting a third inning home run and finally getting into the RBI column and after going that long without an RBI that could build the confidence up.
#3 The Cards Tommy Edman drove in three RBIs in the game including a two run RBI single that helped tally the Cardinal win.
#4 For Giants pitching manager Gabe Kapler went through nine different pitchers and starter Mauricio Llovera was actually an opener pitching just an inning and striking out one batter. If Kapler had a crystal ball maybe he could have left Llovera out there as the pitching just caved in this one.
#5 Giants will try it again as the Cardinals will start Jordan Hicks (1-2 ERA 3.65) against the Giants Alex Cobb (1-1 ERA 5.40) on Friday night a 6:45 pm PDT first pitch.
