The Giants are going through a really tough stretch right now.  They dropped three straight against the Chunichi Dragons and were outscored 12-2 and outhit 23-9.  That brought their record to 6-10 for the month of August.  It also dropped them into third place (after playing out at least 100 or more games) for the first time since 9/2007.

Here's a breakdown of the Giants home / road splits for the current month:

Home 5 4 43 36 .281 3.67
Road 1 6 26 31 .218 3.77

The Giants (especially the offense) must be at least a little relieved to be back at home.
