The San Francisco Giants had their opportunities to Beat LA. Believe you me, they had their opportunities. They damn near had their opportunities every single inning, and they failed to capitalize on them. I was going to highlightor two of their missed opportunities, but its Monday night. Its Monday night and the Giants just lost to the Los Angeles Dodgers. Its Monday night and the Giants just lost to the Dodgers and there are still four more days until Friday night.This is no time for the truncated version. Nois ordering the abridged edition. Monday nights, when the weekend is beyond the horizon and your mouth is full with the acrid taste of Dodger victories and Trevor Bauer gesticulating towards the crowd like the unpopular guy in a band walking off stage thinking hes the most popular Brandon Belt Pet Jersey , is a time to look in the mirror, point out everything you hate, and sit with it.So lets go through all the missed opportunities.Inning by freaking inning.First inningLaMonte Wade Jr. led off the game with a bullet of a shift-beating single. He never advanced to second base.Second inningWilmer Flores singled without. Get used to sentiments like this, and the ensuing disappointment, because Flores had four hits and didnt score. He moved to second when Donovan Solano drew a two-out walk. The Giants did not score, though we forgive them for failing to convert in a two-on, two-out situation with the pitcher at bat Brandon Belt Pillow Cover .Third inningBuster Posey had a -out double. It was a beautiful swing, though he didnt look incredibly comfortable running. Luckily for him he wasnt asked to do any more of it after that double https://www.sanfanstoreonline.com/Buster_Posey_Face_Mask-269 , as he was stranded on second. Fourth inningAfter a -out single did him no favors, Flores opted for a no-out single. He moved to second on a -out single by Solano. They both moved over on a bunt by Anthony DeSclafani. They both walked back to the dugout when Wade struck out.Fifth inningThe Giants came up to bat in the fifth inning, so technically it was a wasted opportunity even though they never put any on base.Sixth inningFlores had a double with no outs, and it bounced high off the wall. It was very close to a home run, which would have tied the game. No worry, you thought, unless you were smart, in which case you thought, ega worry. There was a runner in scoring position with zero outs. Theyd be fine.He never even made it to third base.Seventh inningWade was hit by a pitch to start the inning. He took second on a -out single by Posey. Youve seen this film. You know the ending. He never made it to third.Eighth inningAt this point it was comical. Dark humor. You didnt get excited when Flores had a leadoff single. You didnt even smile when Steven Duggar walked to put Flores in scoring position with no outs. You rolled your eyes at the overplayed setup when Solano grounded out, moving Flores to third and Duggar to second without. You sat stoically as they did not score.Ninth inningMike Tauchman led off the inning with a single that Cody Bellinger doinked https://www.sanfanstoreonline.com/Mike_Yastrzemski_Face_Mask-505 , thus allowing Tauchman to try for second. The only issue was that Bellinger made a perfect throw, Tauchman had to do his best Neo impression to avoid the tag, and he briefly came off the bag in the process, where he got tagged out.Noelse would do anything and the game was over.The Giants went 0-13 with runners in scoring position. They put a body on the basepaths with no outs in six different innings, and never brought that runner home. They had every possible opportunity Buster Posey Pillow Cover , and they threw eachout the window. But if you squint hard enough through that really expensive telescope you drunkenly boughtnight during your 20 minute astronomy phase, you can at least see that the Giants had some opportunities, which is more than we once would have expected.
