It is not often that a team can score seven runs and still lose, but the Giants accomplished that feat. The Padres’ absurd 13 runs were simply too many to overcome.
This loss left San Francisco Giants fans confused about the state of the team. They now have many questions about the future. The Giants and their fans hoped they would be making a playoff push. That, however, seems to be in doubt now.
With the Los Angeles Dodgers way ahead in the National League West race, a wild card spot is their only option.
This series loss was the most recent way the Giants have disappointed their fanbase.
When compared to 2021, this season has been quite the downgrade for Giants fans. They hoped to be the top team in the MLB, now some fans hope the season will end soon.
The San Diego Padres are rivaled only by the Dodgers in their star power. Despite the strength of their division rivals, the Giants still expected to be legitimate contenders. With time running out and the losses piling up, the reality of the situation is setting in. If the San Francisco Giants can’t go on a hot streak, their season will end with disappointment.
Losses like these are always devastating to a fanbase. The Giants offense showed up and played at a high level, but the bullpen did not.
Though the MLB season has not gone San Francisco’s way, perhaps they’ll have better luck in the NFL.
The San Diego Padres bounced back from a losing streak against the San Francisco Giants.
San Diego Padres will attempt to build off this series win against the San Francisco Giants in their playoff push
The San Diego Padres have one of the most loaded rosters in recent memory. With Manny Machado, Juan Soto and soon Fernando Tatis Jr., the Padres are an offensive juggernaut. This game proved that, even if their team gives up seven runs, they can still score enough to win.
While 13 runs a game may not be sustainable, it likely won’t be the last time these Padres hit that mark. If the San Diego Padres can build off this series win, we’ll be seeing them play deep into October.
