A lost night at Chez Latrine

The Giants managed to score 3 runs off Clayton Kershaw but Kelby Tomlinson was awful at shortstop. His awfulness rubbed off on Panik.

Per --

Giants middle infielders Kelby Tomlinson and Joe Panik booted double-play grounders, resulting in a four-run fourth inning, with Hernandez doubling in two runs and former Giant Charlie Culberson singling home a pair. Culberson singled in his third run in the sixth after Tomlinson's second error of the game.
Making the most: Culberson's second RBI hit chased Bumgarner. In his only other start this year, also in a game Bumgarner started, Culberson had the game-winning double in the 10th inning last Saturday in San Francisco. Both times he started at shortstop in place of Corey Seager.
 Disappointing defense: The Giants entered Friday having committed just four errors in 10 games while ranking fifth in the National League with a .989 fielding percentage. They ruined that in the fourth inning, squandering two opportunities for inning-ending double plays. Tomlinson played Ellis' grounder off his glove and the usually reliable Panik made a poor attempt to shovel the ball to second base on Kershaw's grounder.
