For five innings on Wednesday, the San Francisco Giants looked dead in the water against the Arizona Diamondbacks Evan Longoria Hoodie. They were not only losing, but making it look boring. Johnny Cueto didnt have it, and allowed 4 runs by the time the fifth inning concluded. The Giants had worked just two baserunners, and had only two at bats with runners in scoring position. It looked as though they would listlessly loaf into a four-game set with the Los Angeles Dodgers, which is not exactly how you want to approach a series against a world-beating team that just kicked your ass.And then they activated the two Ts: thrill and torture. Staples of every good Giants team since the 90s. The thrill was first activated in the sixth inning when the Giants, trailing 4-0, finally rallied. Steven Duggar who has been red hot as of late entered as a pinch-hitter for Cueto, and started the inning off with a single. Duggar is the fastest player on the roster but hasnt had a chance to get out of second gear on many occasions this season https://www.sanfanstoreonline.com/Evan_Longoria_Pillow_Cover-348. So he jumped on the opportunity to show off his top line speed on a Mike Yastrzemski double, and scored easily on a ball hit to a part of the park where you expect the runner to stop at third.
