These are down days in The City, with Pablo Sandoval out for weeks after hand surgery, Willie Mota busted for drugs, and a defense that's let down every pitcher on the staff.

This reaction, however, is the result of a baserunning blunder in the third that cost the Giants a run and a chance at a win against the hated Dodgers. The loss dropped San Francisco below .500 and, presumably, Bruce Bochy's spirits even lower.
