Though he got two of the Giants four hits off Kershaw, I was disappointed to see that Pablo Sandoval apparently spent the off season training on Little Debbie products. He has never looked fatter. He is listed at 262 pounds, but that clearly is wishful thinking. I'd guess somewhere between 280 and 290.

Yu Darvish perfect through 8 against the Astros. Rangers lead 5-0.

Top of the 9th right now.

Jerry Hairston Jr guns down Pagan.

Crawford wouldn't have got him

Two out single in the ninth wrecks perfect game for Yu.

Isn't that an "unwritten rule"?
Aren't teams supposed to give up after like the first 15 guys get out?

Darvish yanked after surrendering single...clearly he was losing his stuff.

His replacement promptly allowed the second hit of the game.The hit that ended the perfect game went right up the middle and through Yu's legs.

I had started watching during the 4th inning of Yu's perfect game bid primarily when I saw his 9ks in the 4th when perusing box scores. What a game! Baseball, you little devil, you. I had yelled at my wife and niece to come upstairs to witness history. Though they gave me dirty looks, they got into it too. So close.

Ryu looks pretty good too.

Kershaw's shutout was worth an 86 GameScore, but Darvish has left him in the dust with his 96 tonight. 14 k's, no walks.

84 GameScore for Bumgarner tonight.

Giants starters have yet to yield a run this season.
