Giants take Game 1 on the Road

The San Francisco Giants kept Kauffman Stadium quiet en route to a 7-1 Game 1 victory in the 2014 edition of the World Series.  Early overnight reports say that this was the lowest rated World Series game in history.

The Giants were led by pitching ace Madison Baumgarner, who held the Royals scoreless until the 7th Inning when Salvador Perez homered with two outs.  Baumgarner improved to 3-0 with a 0.41 ERA in World Series starts.  Prior to Perez homering, Baumgarner had retired12 players in a row.

“It’s tough not to pay attention to a streak when you’ve got it going. I don’t care. I’m not here trying to set records and keep streaks going and whatever, but you do know about it. A World Series game is not something you exactly forget about. So you remember what [they] were. But tonight, that was the last thing on my mind.”

Game two of the World Series begins tonight at 7:07 P.M.  Plenty of affordable tickets and great seats are still available so get yours now and be a part of the action!

 

Giants hoping homestand against Cards can break streak

The last time the San Francisco Giants could claim a victory was back on June 25th against the San Diego Padres, taking the final of a three game stand.   Then came the Cincinnati Reds who pounded the Giants over a four game stand 20-6. And to think, back on June 8th, the Giants were sitting atop the NL West with the Dodgers a full nine games behind.  Fast forward two weeks and the Dodgers and Giants are tied for first place.

“It’s really unbelievable,” Manager Bruce Bochy said. “If you look at what’s happened the last two weeks, you’d think we were 15 games back — that’s why we have to look at the big picture of where we’re at, and not what’s happened.

The Giants have a major opportunity to right the ship as the St. Louis Cardinals (44-39) come calling for a three game stand.  The Cards just finished a four game stand against the LA Dodgers in which they went 1-3.

Be sure to get your tickets and get out and support your San Francisco Giants.  Great seats and cheap tickets are still available

 

Giants hope to regroup and find Old Selves

The San Francisco Giants core team is essentially the same that won the World Series back in 2012.  That same team did a belly flop in 2013 falling to a third place finish with a 76-86 record.  Now that same team is essentially back for the 2014 season and hope to get back to the Fall Classic.

The Giants had a number of injuries last season which led to their downfall.  Out at different times of the year were Santiago Casilla, Matt Cain, Ryan Vogelsong, Jeremy Affeldt, Hector Sanchez, Pablo Sandoval and Angel Pagan.  Marco Scutaro spent more than half the season on the DL.

The Giants open the season on the road against Arizona Diamondbacks on March 31st.  Great seats and tickets are still available.
