If it’s not one thing, it’s another. This game featured a passable start by its starting pitcher (he simply pitched more innings than he gave up runs, which is a rare sight nowadays). The bullpen pitched two scoreless innings. The defense turned three double plays. But even with 2 long balls by Freddie Freeman and Adonis Garcia, the bats were cold with RISP (0-5).
Aside from the home runs, no one on the offense made much of a contribution, though Adonis did get robbed of a second home run in the 9th.
We’re just bad. Very bad.
