The 10 worst games in A-Braves history: June 8, 1990

(in no particular order)

1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 R H E
– – – – – – – – – – – -
Giants 0 3 0 4 2 7 0 3 4 23 27 1
Braves 3 1 0 0 2 1 0 1 0 8 15 3
W: T Wilson (1-0), L: D Lilliquist (2-8), S: M Thurmond (1)

For some reason, 32,000-plus turned out to watch the Braves — already 13-1/2 out in the West — play the 4th place ‘Gints. Someone named Rick Parker drove in six runs for San Fran, a quarter of his career total. Juan Uribe and Mike Kingery went a combined 7-for-7.

I made Blaine Boyer look like Mariano Rivera

Dwayne Henry gave up six runs and six hits in 2/3 of an inning. Charley Kerfeld allowed five hits and four runs in one frame. Treadway, Murph and Jim Presley contributed errors. Alexis Infante, who would have one hit in 28 AB”s that year as a reserve infielder, made an appearance. So did Jimmy Kremers.

It was the first of a  four-game series. The Giants tacked on 20 more runs that weekend, outscoring the Braves 43-19.

    I have no memory of this game, whatsoever. I don’t doubt that I saw it but it didn’t stick with me.
