Not Carlos Santana had the only RBI of the night. It doesn't seem so bad when you put it that way.

The Giants got BABIP'd on tonight. There's no moral to the story, no lesson to be learned. This isn't a part of a long-running theme, nor is it something symptomatic or emblematic. It was just one of those nights. Every single they had came without a runner in scoring position; every runner in scoring position was waiting for a single that never came.

It's not as if Chad Billingsley wasn't good -- he got ahead of hitters all night and pitched a fine game -- but the Giants hit him enough to score at least one run, if not two Nope. BABIP'd on. Hard-hit balls became outs, and most of the soft-hit balls did too. There wasn't a broken-bat bloop to be found with a runner at third and two down.

Doesn't mean that it didn't absolutely suck to watch that, of course. It's just a little easier to take when the Giants are winning more than they're losing. Not much. In fact, forget I wrote that. It sucked. Barry Zito deserved better. You deserved better. We all did.

Poop.
