The SF Giants once again stave off elimination, beating the Cardinals 6-1 behind the game of Ryan Vogelsong’s life, two days after the game of Barry Zito’s life. Matt Cain has already had the game of his life earlier this season, when he threw a perfect game. He doesn’t need to have the game of his life, just
a solid six innings, 1 run allowed or something like that.
…. Matt Cain faces Kyle Lohse in a rematch of the Cardinals’ Game 3 win. It will be the first Game 7 played in San Francisco since the 1962 World Series.
The winner goes to the Serious.
Right now, Posey is encased in
ice, Pablo Sandoval is swinging a hot bat, and the Giants have stifled the Cards offense for two straight games.
UPDATE: Still batting in the bottom of the third, the Giants leading 7-0. I’m not gonna look it up, but I bet they haven’t been up 7-0 at any time all season. Anybody?
UPDATE: 8-0, top eighth, two on, one out.
UPDATE: Giants win!!!
