Last place Gi­ants de­layed by bus break­down

Cape Breton Post - - Sports -

The San Fran­cisco Gi­ants’ break­downs are ex­tend­ing off the field.

Af­ter get­ting swept by the Cincin­nati Reds in a three­game week­end se­ries and get­ting outscored 31-5, San Fran­cisco had to scram­ble when one of its buses broke down Sun­day about half­way on the drive to Cincin­nati/ North­ern Ken­tucky In­ter­na­tional Air­port in He­bron, Ken­tucky.

Smoke be­gan coming out of the bus car­ry­ing play­ers. The bus car­ry­ing staff pulled over, and the play­ers got on — fill­ing the aisles. The trip to the air­port was de­layed by only a few min­utes.

Gi­ants man­ager Bruce Bochy didn’t wait for the bus to Citi Field on Mon­day.

“I took an Uber,” he said. San Fran­cisco, an NL-worst 11-21, be­gan its trip May 1 by win­ning at Los An­ge­les against Dodgers ace Clay­ton Ker­shaw. The Gi­ants had not been outscored by 26 runs in a three­game se­ries since 1894 against Bos­ton, ac­cord­ing to the Elias Sports Bu­reau.

“We’re a funny club,” Bochy said. “You got to be care­ful that you do as­sume the at­ti­tude that, hey, we’ll be fine. We’ll be fine. But, we’re not fine now, and it’s time for us to do some­thing.”
