Game Recap: Diamondbacks get the sweep

Diamondbacks 5, Giants 2.

  • Tim Lincecum lost his 14th game of the season, making this one of the best losing seasons ever by a pitcher.
  • This is the 70th time the Giants have scored two runs or fewer in a game this season. That’s tied for the most in franchise history, and it’s looking like they’re going to surpass that record (set in 1985).
  • Andres Torres hit his first home run in months: the last time he hit a home run was June 24th. Since then, he’d gone 61 consecutive games (192 PA) without a home run, and just ten extra-base hits in total. His ISO has dropped 100 points this season, and he’s ultimately been one of the major disappointments of this season. Nice to see him finally hit one out.
  • One more series left before this season comes to an end: three games, at home, against the Colorado Rockies. We’ll get to see Ryan Vogelsong, Madison Bumgarner, and Matt Cain each go out one more time. Bumgarner and Cain, while not particularly strong NL Cy Young candidates, should rightfully appear on their fair share of ballots. They currently rank fourth and fifth respectively in NL fWAR. Vogelsong, Bumgarner and Cain have been three of the best parts about this season, and here’s hoping they end on strong notes.
