Andrew Cashner throws hard. Buster Posey doesn’t care.
If the Giants weren’t going to win this game (they didn’t), it’s nice that Posey went yard and Panda extended his hit streak to 20. Dropping a game to the Padres feels like ass. Stinky stinky ass.
Eric Hacker earned his paycheck. Going into a spot start, not overworking the bullpen is the break even point. Hacker ate some innings and kept the Giants in the game.
Hacker’s night was made easier by a curious decision by Bud Black. With two outs and the bases full of Padres in the top of the 6th, he decided to let Luebke hit. This would have been standard operating procedure if Luebke was going to pitch a couple more innings. But curiously, Luebke was pulled after the sixth, just three outs after he struck out with three men on in a close game. Huh.
We’re Going Streaking:
Panda: 20 games. Pay attention ESPN!!!
Pagan: 12 games. Also went yard today. Dude’s hot.
