I have a little bit of a confession to make. I was a tiny bit scared of the San Francisco Giants four-game series against the Arizona Diamondbacks Kevin Gausman Pillow Cover.It had nothing to with a lack of faith in the Giants. It had nothing to do with San Francisco mustering a paltry three runs in their previous four games.It had everything to do with the Diamondbacks being unsustainably bad. Its not that I thought the Diamondbacks would break out of their awful slump, which saw them enter Oracle Park on a 10-game losing streak, with 27 losses in their last 30 games, and 19 consecutive defeats on the road. I didnt think that at all. I promise, there was not pessimism coursing through my veins. Its just that in a four-game series you really expect the bad team to win at least game. Even when that bad team is as bad as the Diamondbacks are, which is really bad. And even when the good team is as good as the Giants are, which, apparently, is really good. You just dont expect a sweep in baseball, especially when a quartet of games are being played. But when the Giants are facing a team so tragically futile, any loss feels like a gigantic disappointment.Ergo, I didnt expect the Giants to get through the series without feeling disappointment, even if going 3-1 is a perfectly lovely result, no matter the opp nt.My fears turned to arrogance after that hilariously disrespectful comeback victory on Tuesday https://www.sanfanstoreonline.com/Brandon_Crawford_Flag-262. I no longer expected the Giants to lose a game in the series . And indeed, the Giants grabbed their brooms and got to sweeping. And with another series in the rearview mirror, the Diamondbacks have now lost 14 straight games, 31 of their last 34, and a modern-era MLB record 23 in a row on the road. Its OK if you feel sorry for them. It doesnt make you a bad Giants fan. But enough about the awful team. Lets focus on the good team. Exactly series after scoring three runs in four games, the Giants scored 37 runs in four games. Thats exactly Kelby Tomlinson worth of runs .Kevin Gausman Flag Anyway, 10 of those came during Thursdays series finale, and they came from some bats that you love to see get hot.Namely, Curt Casali, who got the Giants on the board with his first homer of the year.
