I know, I know. It’s a small sample-size. I know. It’s just one game. But you gotta admit–for a minute there, the world felt right. The GIANTS won and the Dodgers lost. The Twitter world was all abuzz with a quote attributed to Vin Scully. If he actually said it-hysterical. If he didn’t say it-still pretty damn funny: “that noise you hear is the Dodgers packing up and heading back to second place”. But enough about the Dodgers. Let’s talk GIANTS.
Timmy pitched a great game last night. He went 8 shut-out innings, giving up just 4 hits, 0 runs and 2 walks, while striking out 6. Machi did a nice job closing it out. Crawford was amazing on defense. The GIANTS offense got on board with Pence getting a base hit in the 4th and scoring on Posey’s RBI double, who came home on Sandoval’s 2 run homerun. Which, BTW, was the Panda’s 100th career homerun. In the 5th, Perez led-off with a base hit, scoring on Pence’s RBI double who came home when Sanchez hit a ground ball to 2nd. Sanchez was out at 1st, but got credit for the RBI.
It was such a fun game to watch. The guys needed this, the fans needed this, and most of all, I think Bochy needed this.
The final score was: GIANTS 5, Cardinals 0
And with that, the GIANTS re-take 1st place in the NL West. Ahhh…all is right with the world. For now.
that noise you hear is the Dodgers packing up and heading back to second place… now, that’s funny.
