That’s what last night was. Early on, I caught the last four innings of the Cubs vs. Pirates 1-0 thriller, (the Cubs won). Then I went back and forth between the Giants 5-1 win over the Astros, (Lowry was flat-out awesome) and the Padres 4-0 win over the Dodgers. Wow.
Durham has been a juggernaut against Houston, he’s reached base 9 of 10 times so far this series, (6 for 7 with 3 walks). He’s stealing bases, taking a ton of pitches, doing it all. And his defense has come alive. In fact, the Giants as a team are really flashing the leather over the last month.
The Giants look unbeatable, as they continue to pound whoever they face. Combined with their suddenly unhittable pitching staff, this team is rounding into playoff form right in front of our eyes.
Only two of those four will make it. You’re telling me this isn’t a pennant race?
