The Giants lost to Cliff Lee and the Phillies 6-2 tonight, their largest margin of defeat since their last game in Milwaukee on April 18th, and their first loss since last Sunday. The Giants have started a trend with their winning and losing, and in the picture below, you might be able to spot it yourself — the green being wins, and the red equalling losses:
If you’re curious what the “Height” is the beginning of, it says, “Height of bar is margin of victory up to 10 runs,” but that’s not what we’re worried about.
The trend is from just after that really long green bar of a win and starts with the little red bar. It goes like this from that game on April 12th:
- Giants lose one,
- Win two in a row,
- Lose three in a row,
- Win four straight,
- Lose five consecutive,
- Win six in a row
That 6-2 loss has snapped that six game losing streak, and that can only mean one thing for what wil happen next… if you believe in those kinds of patterns.
What do I believe? I believe the Dodgers just lost tonight and the Giants are in first place in the NL West and the Dodgers are in last place.
