Friday Night in Review
It's happened the same way both times- the bullpen, including former Yankee phenom and current Hagar the Horrible lookalike Joba Chamberlain, is not able to hold the team down during the 7th and 8th. It happened (in a huge way) Thursday night, and it happened again last night, with Delmon Young (wow, the Rookie Class of 2007 was well-represented in this game) having some huge hits to seal the win.
They have today off, but once they get to Detroit, things are going to be huge. After all, if they win, the whole damn thing will be over, and the Tigers will be out...which is a very nice thought if you're rooting for Baltimore.
That's not to say the Giants have this absolutely wrapped up, though.
Matt Carpenter just kept beating up Clayton Kershaw, and driving in hits and home runs all over the place. I felt sorry for Kershaw.
The game ended with a 10-9 victory, and it stung a little bit. I want the Dodgers to fight back next game.
Man, the Angels-Royals game was so boring up to the 11th, when Hosmer had a huge home run to break it all up, and from there it was basically over. I'm so happy for the Royals, who've had three postseason victories in a row, and are in position to sweep when they get back home. This is great news for them, because they deserved this season.
I'll be back with an update after the games.
