Game 45 Recap - Giants 4, Braves 0

I'm sure we all feel like Kris does over there right now. The Braves got owned by Tim Lincecum, plain and simple. There was nothing anyone could do to stop the Timmy Train. The Braves had a couple of opportunities to get some runs across, but 2 of those opportunities with RISP came with the pitcher's spot in the order up, and we know how that turned out due to the lack of Infante.

Kris Medlen pitched better last night. Not great, but better. His horrible second inning really doomed him, and he's pulling a Reyes in the fact that he seems to not be able to pitch effectifvely with runners on base. Heres a fun little stat: with men on, Medlen is allowing a OPS of 1.333, while with the bases empty, the number drops to .345. Very small sample size yes, but its telling. Jojo Reyes's splits aren't as telling, only a 140 point spike, but the numbers are horrible either way.

In news bound to please many people around here, the Braves placed Buddy Carlyle on the 15 day DL and brought Jorge Campillo off. Carlyle has been a disaster lately, and hopefully Campillo can help provide some long relief to the pen that has strugged with it lately.
