Post-Game 135 Thread: Arriving Fashionably Late

Swiped from a 2012 post from Rog Hernandez' blog. Which goes to show you: Giants fans show up late on purpose.


Chris Capuano had a pretty good start on Saturday (7.0 IP, 8 H, 1 ER, 1 BB and 7 Ks), yielding only a solo HR to Ronny Cedeno in the fourth. The Dodgers were apparently so surprised by this Capuano performance that they did nothing offensively for seven innings, before Adrian Gonzalez' RBI single in the seventh to tie it, followed by Mark Ellis' PH RBI single in the eighth to win it.

Brian Wilson gets the win for his scoreless eighth inning; Kenley Jansen gets his 23rd save for his scoreless ninth.

2-1 victories against the Padres aren't very inspiring (as we know now, there's another one coming in the series' final game), but hey, we'll take it. We won't be able to show up fashionably late come October, however.
