Winning streak snapped at 1

The San Francisco Giants collected 7 hits and 1 walk in the first four innings of Friday night’s game against Chicago Cubs starter Marcus Stroman. They hit 2 singles against him with runners in scoring position, yet were unable to convert base runners into runs. At the end of 9 innings, having lost 4-2, they had knocked 13 hits but left 13 men on base. The Giants did a lot of great things in this game—yet struggled when it came to the essential baseball act.

It was a night in which everyone set the table but no one cooked the meal.
