I just woke up. This is why:

Giants beat Dodgers in 12th on Sanchez’s walk-off single

Hector Sanchez had his wife and young daughter waiting in the parking lot. He had to do something to end the game.

Sanchez singled home the winning run with two outs in the 12th inning and the San Francisco Giants beat the Los Angeles Dodgers 3-2 on Tuesday night after Brandon Belt’s tying double in the ninth.

“They’ve been waiting for 3 hours,” Sanchez said. “My daughter has school tomorrow.”

Hunter Pence had three hits for the Giants, who have won three of four.

Tim Lincecum and Josh Beckett both pitched well for five innings but were long gone by the time this one finally ended.

“When you play hard and win in the last minute, it’s a lot of fun,” Belt said.

Brandon Crawford singled off Brandon League (0-1) with one out in the 12th and advanced to second on a groundout by Brandon Hicks. His bouncer deflected off third baseman Juan Uribe to shortstop Hanley Ramirez, who threw to first for the out.

But the Dodgers were unable to get the lead runner on the play, and it cost them.

Crawford went to third on a wild pitch and Sanchez hit a sharp one-hopper that glanced off the glove of diving second baseman Justin Turner and into center field.

“Every day is different,” said Sanchez, who entered in the 10th inning. “I have to be ready for any situation. This is a great moment to enjoy.”


The game finally ended after midnight. It was glorious.

I was exhausted.

If I had been drinking I would have passed out earlier.

This is an open thread.

    Does anyone else’s mom call at 7:30 a.m. to find out the result of an extra-inning night game the night before?

    I think it’s sweet. She could have looked it up on the internet, or turned on the news, but instead, she wanted to hear her son’s voice.

    Duh

    The US is an oligarchy, study concludes

    Report by researchers from Princeton and Northwestern universities suggests that US political system serves special interest organisations, instead of voters

    In honor of Michael Bloomberg’s donating 50mil for gun CONTROL, I share some logic….

    I’ve tried all but two of those. Three of them are among my favorite hobbies.

    • Somebody says:

      Interesting that 84% think extramarital affairs are unacceptable. I presume they find them unacceptable in their spouse or potential spouse not for themselves, because the statistics of infidelity don’t comport with that 84%.

      • WMCB says:

        I think that even most of those who cheat recognize that it’s wrong. The number of poeple who say it’s wrong to lie is going to be high as well, even though most people have lied before.

        There’s a big difference between believing something is wrong and never having done it.

    • DeniseVB says:

      I think it was a trick question. If I tried to answer those personally, I still feel like I’m judging someone else’s choices. Personally, I would not choose abortion or have sex with another woman. I’ve never had an extramarital affair or divorce and have certainly enjoyed all the rest. I guess I’m a libertarian 😉

    • DeniseVB says:

      I’m starting to get the feeling the Dems are playing the GOP like Putin plays Obama. Both brilliant and disturbing. Holder has nothing to worry about.

    If I wasn’t watching Fargo I would explain everything that is wrong with this tweet:

    My take on Fargo (No spoilers):

    If you like quirky dark humor with BBT you’ll probably like Fargo. If you like more traditional comedy and drama, not so much.

    This is total BS, illegals getting 4.2 billion in tax credits for children that don’t even live here. They’re not even their own children they’re nieces and nephews. If you follow this link there is a video from a local station in Indiana that has been investigating this.

    Serendipity:

    Didn’t feel like cooking so I was debating whether to open a can of chili beans or heat up a frozen pizza. That’s when the phone rings.

    My mom: “Come over and watch the Giants game. I made pot roast.”
