Braves 4 Giants 1

My wife and I nailed down tickets to a Giants game again, and again they disappointed me. This time we drove to Larkspur (right near San Rafael) and took the ferry to the game. For those that understand the transportation system around here, we didn't take the SBC Park Ferry, we took the ferry that went to the San Francisco Ferry Building. It worked out perfect as we got to the game faster, and got home quicker than either driving, or taking the SBC ferry. Sure, the walk from the Ferry Building to the park was about 20 minutes, but its San Francisco on a beautiful day!
The pitching in the game was excellent. Noah Lowery pitched well for the Giants, even though he gave up a 2-run homer to some nobody that was just called up, while John Smoltz was throwing 93 mph gas in the bottom of the 8th inning. Give it up for the vet. All in all, the game was still fun to be at, even though there weren't any "unusual" activies this time (check back a few weeks to see the previous game).

Once again, I highly recommend going to SBC Park to check out a Giants game.
