    Not a good week. At all. The Giants are in the midst of a 7-game losing streak, including sweeps at Minnesota and at home against the Padres. At 10 1/2 games back of a playoff spot, tied with Arizona now, with 32 games left, the season is over. What went wrong? Who's to blame? What can they do? The only goals left are to have a winning month, get close to .500, and see what the young bucks have in their tanks. 2022 is turning out to be an extremely disappointing season for a team that set a franchise record with 107 wins last year.

    This is Chad King from Torturecast with a few notes and sounds from last night's 4-0 victory over the LA dodgers in game 1 of the National League division series at Oracle park. Logan Webb reminded all of us of Tim Lincecum's postseason debut against the Braves in game 1 of the NLDS in 2010. Webb threw 7 ⅔ scoreless innings while striking out 10 and issuing zero walks. The offense was powered by a 2 run opposite field home run in the first by Buster Posey, followed by solo shots by Kris Bryant in the 7th and Brandon Crawford in the 8th. Tyler Rogers got one out in the 8th and Camilo Doval retired the side in order in the 9th.Our friend Ryan Leong from Bay Area sports wrap was at Oracle last night and kindly shared some audio with us. The first is Giants shortstop Brandon Crawford talking about how Logan Webb has improved in his abilities over the last two years. Giants starting and winning pitcher Logan Webb says says it's always been his goal since he was a child to pitch in a playoff game Dodgers manager Dave Roberts says his team kept the same approach at the plate and Logan Webb exploited their weaknesses Dodgers losing pitcher Walker Buehler says he didn't do his job and he takes the blame for the loss. A big thanks to Ryan Leong from Bay Area sports wrap, go follow him over on Twitter @ryanleong Well, the Giants and Dodgers will do it again tonight at ORacle when Kevin Gausman faces 20 game winner Julio Urias. Hopefully the Giants can put their foot on the Dodgers' throats by going up 2-0. I'll be in the bleachers with the rowdy crowd tonight.

    The Giants' season took a depressing turn when they were swept at home by the Dodgers. But, being #ResilientAF, they brushed themselves off and won 6 of their next 7 games, including 3 of 4 in Dodger Stadium. That weekend was highlighted by a gut-wrenching, classic torturous Giants game as the Dodgers tied it up with a pinch-hit, 2 out, 3-run bomb to tie the game at 5. The very next batter, Albert Pujols, sent what appeared to be the walk-off blast over the left field wall until Mike Tauchman put on his cape and lept over the fence to snatch defeat out of thin air. The Giants proceeded to put a 3 spot in the 10th and held on for the win. That propelled them to 3 straight over the Dodgers. Chad and Willie talk about the last two weeks of baseball, the shift, Gausman winning NL pitcher of the month, postseason predictions, the upcoming series vs the streaking Cubs (9-1 over 10...and swept the Padres) and more. twitter.com/torturecast facebook.com/torturecast www.torturecast.com

    Join us for episode #225 as we chat about the 26-16 first-place Giants as they stay hot. Yes, they should be 6-0 on this road trip, but sh$# happens. Despite having the best record in all of baseball, the Giants have still been walked off 6 times on the road. That's HALF of their 12 road losses. As Eric put it, they aren't #ResilientSF, they are #ResilientAF. We chat about the Pittsburgh and Cincinnati series, and preview the BIG series against the Dodgers this weekend.

    Join Chad and Eric's discussion about the last week of Giants baseball and the surprising development that this team finds itself alone in first place for the first time since August 2016. Remarkable for a rag-tag team, eh? They review the series at home vs Colorado and three at San Diego. The starters continue to dominate while the hitting and bullpen still need to pick it up. But hey, we can't complain much at this point. Then there were the infamous three straight balls called strikes in the 9th in San Diego. Ump had a dinner reservation, apparently.

    With the way the Giants are playing, we DO feel good! For those of you who are old enough to remember the 1989 "I Feel Good" commercial/campaign the Giants ran....you'll understand. Join us for episode #220 as Chad and Eric review the Giants series in San Diego and against Colorado and Cincinnati. We discuss the incredible timely hitting (despite being second-worst in batting average in the NL), and excellent pitching that has contributed to their scorching 8-4 start to the season. Alex Wood joined the rotation and will pitch in Miami, but that's balanced by a lat injury to Johnny Cueto in the finale of the Reds series.
