Games no. 80 for the 1985 and 2017 San Francisco Giants 06/28/2017

2296San Francisco Giants game no. 80 in 2017: The Giants (29-51) beat the Rockies 4-3 in 14 innings. Matt Cain provided a “quality start” — why three ER in six innings is the baseline for that metric will always puzzle me — and the shitty SF bullpen threw eight shutout innings.

Still two games behind the ’85 team that lost 100 games.

July 6, 1985: The Giants (31-49) won their fourth straight, beating the Cubs 6-4 in Chicago. Rookie 3B Chris Brown homered twice behind Scott Garrelts in relief. Starter Mike Krukow blew his 3-2 lead in the 6th, but 2B Manny Trillo homered in the 8th and Brown in the 9th to save Krukow’s butt.
