This was just a horrible game. If it wasn't so sad....it would be funny. The Giants gave up 18 hits, 10 walks (TEN!!!!) and had 3 scored errors plus 3 more defensive miscues that weren't scored as errors. If it wasn't for the Royals trying to keep up with the Giants in the error category...the Giants would only have scored 2 runs (the other 3 were unearned). In the Giants 3 run inning, the Royals had 3 double play situations and had a total of 1 out to show for it. Try as they might....the Royals could not come CLOSE to paying as badly as the Giants.....but then who could?
I posted the photo to the left to show the attendance of this game. And this was in 3rd inning when it was still 3-3. Apparently, Spring Training fans knew what this game was going to be like and wisely stayed away. The announced attendance was 3,200. I have not been to a Spring Training game with this few people in 20 years.
OK......I am now going to finish this up and have a LARGE stiff drink. Tomorrow has to be better.....doesn't it?
