You thought the San Francisco Giants had hit rock bottom when they lost three out of four games to the MLB-worst Miami Marlins at home. You thought they had hit rock bottom again when they were swept by the Dodgers.
And you certainly thought they had hit rock bottom when they were no-hit by Homer Bailey on Tuesday night in Cincinnati.
But “rock bottom” is hard to define for a team that has dropped 11 of their last 13 games, and has showed no sign of coming out of their funk.
The Giants lost against last night to the Reds, falling on a walk-off hit by Shin-Soo Choo in the bottom of the 11th.
Their offense has seemingly forgotten how to score runs, and Pablo Sandoval is swinging at pitches that bounce between his legs.
As a result of their free-fall, the Giants are now 39-45, six games under the .500 mark and a full four games back in the NL West. Even the Dodgers passed them in the standings, meaning that your defending World Series champions are now last place in their division.
Hunter Pence described it best, saying, “If you’re going through hell, keep going.”
The Giants are sure going through hell, desperately looking to reach purgatory, at the very least.
Have the Giants hit rock bottom yet?
