Giants Tie Live-Ball Era Pitching Record, But Offense Can’t Keep Up


Even though the San Francisco Giants only gave up a pair of runs to the Chicago Cubs, they still lost 2-0 Wednesday night at Wrigley Field. As a result, the Giants’ ace pitching staff matched the live-ball era (since 1920) record for surrendering less than three runs for the 16th straight game. The record shared with the 1972 Cleveland Indians and 1981 Oakland A’s. Remarkably, the Giants only have gone 10-6 during this period, which includes a pair of 1-0 wins and a pair of 1-0 losses. The anemic Giants’ offense has managed only 50 runs during this period, a number inflated by a 10-2 victory against the Los Angeles Dodgers and a 9-2 drubbing of the Milwaukee Brewers.
