The Giants batted well and scored just enough to win (again) – The Athletic

After beating the Cleveland Guardians 4-2 on Saturday night, the Giants have now allowed 19 runs in eight games. They are 6-2 and have won each of their first three series. Welcome to the 2022 season, where the runs are tight, but the runs allowed are even tighter.

The 19 runs in eight games isn’t a franchise record, but it is the second-best ERA in eight games in San Francisco history. Of the six teams that have been better in franchise history, including New York, four have played in a World Series. (If you’re looking for bar trivia, the all-time major league record for fewest runs in eight games belongs to the 2002 Giants, who conceded just nine runs.)

This is the story of the young season. Aside from Tuesday’s explosion of runs (and unwritten rules) against the Padres, the Giants scored just enough points to win while stopping runs at a near-historic pace. This is the style of play that Giants fans have become accustomed to, and so far it has worked for them. The limited all-pitch version of a hit ball club is either a throwback to 2011 or 2012, which is like saying it’s either a perfectly cooked piece of possum or a perfectly cooked piece of prime rib. It will be time to find out exactly which analogy applies. but now it’s exciting.

If there’s one impressive part about this series, it’s that not every starting pitcher is as dominant The Giants batted well and scored just enough to win (again) – The Athletic
