Schizo Sanchez

Jonathan Sanchez appears to be back in mid-season form, following up great outings with having no command at all. He was at 94 pitches in the fifth -- 53 strikes and 41 balls -- having walked five and couldn't get out of the inning as the Giants reverted to their no-offense offense, which gave some Rox rookie his first big legaue vic. Any time the pitchers allow four runs, it's going to be tough for this team to win.

The Giants got only four hits today -- a single by Rowand, a homer by Huff and two doubles by Downs. The team is currently leading the MLB in batting average at .281 but -- thanks to Brian Sabean's incompetence -- is only 20th out of 30 in runs scored at 105. It's first in fewest runs allowed at 62. The team won on April 9 at the home opener even though the staff gave up 4 runs, but it's now lost all six games in which its pitchers have given up four or more runs.

If the pitching isn't there the chances of the offense bailing them out is pretty low.

If the team gives up more than 4 runs the chances of winning are very low with this offense.
