After a disappointing night against Nolasco, the Giants are leaving runners on base at a staggering pace tonight. Five through two innings.
Yes, the notion of “clutch” hitting is largely overblown, there’s not much statistically to suggest that anything about the game fundamentally changes, but fer chrissakes.
Tonight would be a great time to get a win as well. The D-Bags and Bums both dropped games in glorious walk-off fashion and the Giants can gain a game and set themselves up nicely for a rubber match tomorrow.
So please, pretty please, with sugar and cherries and a pinch of nutmeg on top… someone score some goddam runs.
