Mark Melancon blows a save by giving up a 2-run Tater to Padres' Hector  Sanchez. Game is going to extra innings tied 2-2.

Giants fans now need a whole lot of them garlic fries to go with all the salt that's flying around.

I liked the garlic fries at Red Robin better.  :mg:

Xavier Cedeno seems to be the best of the lot.

Anyone remember Alex Meyer?  The former top pitching prospect is sitting on a 6.16 ERA at Salt Lake LAA affiliate in the PCL AAA.  He made one start for the Angels on 4/21 and gave up 2 ER in 3.2 IP.  He may get another chance with Tyler Skaggs' injury.

Absolutely bizarre that teams are still trying to use him as a 27-year old, 2-pitch starting pitcher. What a waste of an arm.

I thought someone tried to turn him into a closer a couple of years ago.

Desmond's got his first HR as a Rockie. He came off the DL on Sunday or thereabouts. https://mediadownloads.mlb.com/mlbam/mp4/2017/05/04/1349743183/1493865154144/asset_2500K.mp4

I only care because of where I am from, but what's weird is that there are two people in the majors from Victoria, and they both started tonight for the same team.

He's from as far away from Victoria as any Canadian could be.

Jordan Zimm 5.2 IP, 4 ER last night.  He continues to underwhelm.  Man, did Rizzo get this one right, or what?
