Part of me wants to make excuses for Barry Zito. Seriously. He didn't help himself by walking David Eckstein on four pitches or getting behind Brian Giles, but he was the victim of quite a few bloops and dunks.
Still, he was up against a pitcher who was released by the Nationals. That's like a girl who can't get a phone number at Comic-Con. And yet I fully expected that the Padres would win. Sad, that.
Add in the unexpectedly subpar performance from Madison Bumgarner -- who allowed two hits while striking out less than a batter per inning -- and this wasn't a good night for the Giants' organization.
Also of note: Scott Hairston is a bad person who laughed a lot during Schindler's List.
