And That Happened

Giants 2, Reds 1: No one would ever get rich betting on things like “Scott Rolen will make a critical error on a relatively easy bouncer to third,” but that’s what happened. It was set up by a passed ball, allowing the winning run to get to third. The Reds have still not won a home playoff game since 1995. Still, it’s not like the Giants’ offense is fixed — and if Hunter Pence were a horse he would have been shot by now — so you have to assume that Cincinnati stands a good chance of winning one of two.

Athletics 2, Tigers 0: Masterful pitching by the Brett Anderson and a bullpen that is not yet out of gas, it seems. And great defense helped matters. They face each other again tonight.

You would assume, but that might not be the case that they stand a good chance of winning one of two.  It is still hard for the Giants to win the series, but nothing like it was before game 3.  While we have Zito starting for Game 4, the Reds don’t even know who they will start:  either Leake, the worse starter in their rotation, or Latos, who would be starting on short rest for the first time in his career, and his ERA rises the less rest he gets, and Bochy has noted the poor results in the past… Read more »
