Let’s be glad it’s still early on in the season, because the San Francisco Giants are on a five game losing streak (longest current losing streak in MLB)! They just got swept out of Petco Park by the Padres, and now start a new series tonight in Arizona. The D-Backs are also sending Ian Kennedy to the mound, and he hasn’t lost to the Giants in nine straight starts. Let’s hope tonight is the night that Kennedy’s win streak ends over the Giants, and most importantly the Giants stop this five game skid!
The good news is the Giants are only two games out in the NL West, and there are still months of baseball left. It’s not the worst thing in the world to see these guys struggle early on, and fight to get back on track. That should only make them stronger down the stretch.
Matt Cain is 0-2 with a 6.59 ERA, and still grinding for his first win of the 2013 season. The Giants have lost all five of Cain’s starts this year. He’s 8-4 in 16 career starts...
