Giants' Jeff Samardzija: Takes eighth loss
Samardzija (7-8) allowed four runs on six hits while striking out seven over five innings to take the loss against the Mets on Saturday.
Samardzija's personal three-game win streak (1.66 ERA and 5.6 K/BB) and the Giants' seven-game run both came to an end Saturday. Three of the four earned runs came via the long ball, increasing his season mark to 1.5 HR/9 (worst since 2010). It wasn't all bad for the Shark's fantasy owners, as he salvaged his day with seven punchouts over the five frames. Samardzija's next opponents Friday, the Padres, present a potential matchup problem with 152 homers through 98 games.
