…. Eight is enough

Or is it?

After last night’s gutty, come from behind, 5-4 win, which completed the revenge sweep; the Giants find themselves in a three way tie for first place, something even the most die-hard fan couldn’t have imagined ten days ago. They have pitched superbly, (notwithstanding Lowry and Ortiz’s struggles the last two nights), they have hit just enough, and they have played stellar defense. And that’s what it takes to go on a streak, a little of everything, including luck.

Whether it was luck or stupidity when the Dodgers tried their ill-fated suicide is debatable, with Ortiz on the ropes, there was no reason to even consider a trick play, but the move backfired. Ortiz got out of the jam, and the G-men slowly made their way back. On to Arizona, for some more NL West action.
