Cardinals 3, Giants 2
Alex Cobb was very good, giving up just one hit in the first four innings of this one, but he gave up a single and a homer to get chased in the fifth – not a quality start. The Giants bats were held in check again. The Giants have scored only five runs in the last four games while surrendering 22 runs to the Dodgers and Cards. Early in this season, they are not really competitive or on par with the best, having lost three of four to the Mets as well.
The identity of this team will change a great deal in the coming weeks, so we’ll see. I am going to write less, maybe just some features as and when I see something interesting develop.
I will be at the day game on Wednesday. Hopefully we can at least beat the Rox.
