DENVER -- The Giants were up against double trouble in the series opener in Colorado on Friday night. The Rockies had a relentless doubles attack, knocking seven two-baggers among their 15 hits for the night. And the Colorado defense turned three double plays against San Francisco -- a season high for the Giants.
The double play has been something of a nemesis for the Giants this season, and they entered play Saturday tied with the Padres for the lead in the National League with 18 GIDPs. It has not gone without notice that Casey McGehee had hit into a most-in-the-Majors seven himself, in just 46 at-bats.
