Game 76: Giants 3, Indians 1

 

Fausto Carmona worked his way through six innings while allowing three runs; it was his first Quality Start since May 8th.  The Giants don't have much of a lineup these days, but even so, perhaps some small success will help reinforce the mechanical changes that he's been working on between starts. Carmona's main problems have been occurring when he's been pitching out of the stretch (batting line of .359/.416/.641 with runners on, versus .218/.278/.336 with nobody on), and the coaching staff has been trying to prevent his pitches tailing horizontally when throwing from the stretch.

There isn't much more to be said about the offense that hasn't been said many times before. The defensive miscues that cost the Indians the Friday and Saturday games don't matter if the offense manages five runs in either game. With the lineups that are being thrown out lately, I'm not convinced the Indians will score five runs on any game on this road trip, and that's even with the hitter-friendly parks in Arizona and Cincinnati upcoming.
