Jimmy Garoppolo was a major reason Richard Sherman decided to sign with the 49ers.
“I watched how he moved down the stretch, I watched how poised he was,” Sherman said. “I had conversations with his teammates, I had conversations with the head coach about how they coach him, about how he approaches the game. And just seeing his demeanor and seeing how he interacts with his teammates, I think I made a fantastic decision [to join the 49ers].”
Sherman registered 35 total tackles and two interceptions in nine games with the Seahawks last season. He injured his Achilles in November and missed the rest of the season.
With one out in the seventh, Ketel Marte, who was thrown out earlier in the game trying to stretch a single, took off from first base on John Ryan Murphy’s sinking liner to center. Marte had already rounded second as Cain made a diving catch and was easily doubled off. Dyson led off the eighth with a walk but was called out on an attempted steal after he slid past the base.
We preach aggressiveness but smart aggressiveness, Lovullo said. “Tonight was a bit too much.”
