PHOENIX - MAY 19:  John Bowker #20 of the San Francisco Giants emerges from purgatory to get an at-bat. In other news, purgatory is a pinkish-red, and John Bowker is a pirate.

If the Giants are going to get only four hits, it's only polite for them to give up 13 runs at the same time so we can go about our night. Big cheers to small victories. Every once in a while, the Giants will have a Wellemeyer/Batista/Medders night. Tonight was that night.

Here's a distribution of the margins of defeat in Giants losses this season:

Twelve runs: 1
Five runs: 1
Three runs: 3
Two runs: 4
One run: 8

Eight one-run losses. Tonight almost felt cathartic. Giants baseball: torture.
