    San Francisco Giants: three keys to beating the Nationals

    As the San Francisco Giants remain offensively inconsistent and defensively unstable, the Washington Nationals continue to dominate the NL East with a stellar 30-19 record through the first eight weeks of play. Although San Francisco suffered a tumultuous start to the season, including the loss of ace LHP Madison Bumgarner to injury, they have managed to climb from the bottom of the NL West standings despite losing five of their last nine games.

With a 2-0 loss to the Braves at AT&T Park on Friday night, the Giants offense is officially the worst in all of Major League Baseball, averaging 3.32 runs per game after producing just six runs in their past four games. Friday’s shutout was the first thrown by the Braves pitching staff this season, a group that entered the game with the fifth-highest ERA (4.70) in the National League. The Giants’ (20-30) current funk is particularly frustrating considering that the offense produced 37 runs in eight games before going cold in Chicago this week. “I thought we’d come
