Game 59: Time lapse; Giants take 2 out of 3 from the Rockies with 2-1 win

Well, I saw the start time for Sunday's game as 4, turns out that was the eastern time zone start time -- don't know why I didn't catch that.

Anyway, I apparently missed Vogelsong's 4th win, another gem, and now I think maybe we should start using his name as consideration for all-stars (and BTW, Boche is picking the hurlers).

Game 55: Timely hitting gets Timmy out of a jam, Giants in 7-5

I like it when Timmy has tough luck and the boys get him out of a jam.

Despite an 0 for 6 from their back up 3rd baseman Miggy, the Giants answered all 5 runs that the Cardinals put up with a 9th inning, 2 out, game tying Nate Schierholtz single after Manny Burriss stole second to put himself in scoring position.

Then, Nate the Great knocks in Fred with an 11th inning single to put the Giants up for good.

Timmy looked pretty good, he had a few tough innings and coughed up a lead int he 7th, but he deserves an off night.  The Giants made it a point to pull him out of the fire, and got to the Cards' perfect closer in the 9th.

When Sandoval comes back, and hoping that Nate can pull off a .270 avg with 15 ding dongs this year, the Giants might have a shot.

The boys have at least a split in a big series and keep pace with the first place WTF D-Backs.


So, I stepped into media blackout after the final A's game because my wife had a kid

my daughter Tyler

And I come back and all hell has broken loose.

  • 3-6 since then
  • Swept by Marlins at home
  • Posey has a broken leg (clean or not, unnecessary hit)
  • Belt came back and went down
  • Crawford might be purty good
  • The D-Backs are in first place and the Rockies are below .500?

As my son would say, "That's cwazy!"
