We enjoyed Wednesday night’s action-filled Game 1 and it’s outcome – go Giants! – and hope for more of the same as Game 2 is about to start. We don’t watch that much of the Grand Old Game, but when the playoffs and especially the Series come around, we tune in. I can guess who Bill Crider and James Reasoner are cheering on!
Wow, what a half inning. The 8th, last night, in which the Texas Rangers walked in three consecutive runs. Has that ever happened in a series before? They then gave up hit after hit, went through several pitchers, in an over-half-hour half inning. Unreal. We’ll be watching Saturday as the Rangers try to come back and win one at home.
Texas showed some flashes of their winning ways, and got the home win to make the series interesting, but it was a pretty sloppy game on both sides, and I was glad to be able to jump to college football during parts of it. Game 4 will be telling.
Games 4 & 5
Giants all the way. Congratulations to the Giants, especially their pitching staff and to Edgar Renteria, series MPV and deserving of it. Fifty three years is a long time to wait. When we were in SF for Bouchercon, they were Giants crazy, and now it’s more so. Good for them.
