NLDS Game 2: Brandon Belt’s homer propels Giants to victory in longest postseason game in MLB history

A game that Washington Nationals starter Jordan Zimmermann nearly wrapped up in under 100 pitches somehow turned into the longest postseason game at in MLB history at six hours, 23 minutes. Finally, after 18 grueling innings, which tied Game 5 of the 2005 NLCS between the Altanta Braves and Houston Astros, as the longest postseason in number of innings, Brandon Belt delivered the difference maker. He belted a solo homer to give San Francisco a 2-1 victory and a 2-0 lead in the series.

What will it take to knock the San Francisco Giants off their postseason perch? The Washington Nationals thought they had the answer for 8 2/3 innings Saturday, but one baserunner sent rookie manager Matt Williams into a panic — literally and figuratively — and led him to remove Zimmermann at 100 pitches, just one out short of a shutout.

The decision predictably backfired as frequent postseason heroes Buster Posey and Pablo Sandoval delivered clutch two-out hits off previous postseason goat Drew Storen. Sandoval’s hit was a game-tying double to the left-field corner that nearly ended the game, but Posey was thrown out at home, forcing the game to extra innings.

Tim Hudson pitched a gem, giving up only one run, but got a no-decision on his stat sheet. Jordan Zimmermann pitched even better, but he ended up with nothing to show for it. Yusmeiro Petit pitched six innings of shut-out relief. The Giants used eight pitchers. The Nationals used nine.

Former Giant third baseman and current Nationals manager got ejected along with his starting second baseman. It seemed like half the fans in Nationals Stadium left early. The other half were noisy as hell. The announcers ran out of stuff to say. UFC fans were pissed that the game preempted the fights they wanted to watch.

The night had a happy ending for the SF Giants and their fans.

    Today is gonna suck. The SF Giants have a travel day today. The Oakland Raiders have a bye week. I guess I’ll just have to go see my new grandbaby.

  2. Somebody says:

    Sounds like a wonderful plan! I’m glad the Giants were able to win.
    The Jaguars play the Steelers today, as if we don’t all know the outcome already. I miss the days when we actually had a team that could win.

    Gah. I fell asleep in the 14th inning thinking I hope they don’t run out of beer. Then I thought a lot of drunks driving home in DC then Zzzzzzzzz.

      Ebola, D68 in the US is All About “Disease Justice” or “Disease Equity”

      I am not going to review all the news about ebola (although I do provide some interesting links) – I hope you’ve been keeping up with it. The contact is now up to 100 people, and will grow (since workers refuse to clean up the patient, Thomas E. Duncan’s vomit and sweat mess).

      The Center for Immigration Studies, always a source of credible information other news outlets won’t talk about, has a good story about why Duncan should never have been given a visa to come to the USA – and believe me he has zero plans to go back to where he came from.

      Duncan was issued a visa and I know why – and I also know why there will be no travel bans to and from West Africa even as the illness continues to spread there. It is called “disease justice” or “disease equity” or “disease equality.” Like the bogus wealth distribution scheme called “income equity,” “disease equity” is the same thing with a twist. As I am in the “media” – the “news media” – I know this first hand to be true.

      You see, first worlders and Westerners, we cannot allow one area of the third world to bear the burden of ebola alone. We all must share it. This is why enterovirus D68 is becoming more prevalent among children – and has already caused death. We all must suffer. We all must understand the perils of disease. And, we have to import people in order to treat them in (temporarily) first world hospitals. On your dime. Because justice!

      I would not be surprised at all to find that this is exactly how Obama and co. think

    Well my daughter did break her ankle last night. I had a feeling that was the case, but she didn’t want to seek medical attention at the time. Apparently she was in a lot of pain overnight and wasn’t able to sleep so she got medical attention early this morning.

    There are two bones with hairline fractures and a small bone chip broke loose. The doctor said he thought she’d be OK with a walking cast, but wants her off work with her feet up for a minimum of 2-3 days, he prefers a week. Since it was her manager that took her to the ER that’s not going to be a problem. There is a lot of swelling and the doctor thinks that is causing the pain and not the bone chip, but the only way to know that is to stay off the leg and keep it elevated. If it turns out the bone chip is causing the pain then he’ll refer her to a surgeon to remove the bone chip. We’ll know that later in the week I presume. I also presume if she has to have surgery I’ll be headed to North Carolina for a bit to care for her. I kind of feel like maybe I should head up there anyway, but she says she’s fine. She lives alone in an upstairs apartment and like most young people lives and shops day to day. She tells me she’ll survive just fine on sandwiches for a few days, argh!

    • The Klown says:

      I just saw an article that said bone chip surgery is quick and easy these days. They use an arthroscope so all they need is a small incision.

      • Somebody says:

        It should be and I know for a fact there is a very good surgical team in Charlotte where my daughter is. In fact lots of NFL players go there for these doctors. Still she’s going to need somebody to drive her to the surgery and she will need to recoup for a few days. I guess if I was “forced” to go to North Carolina I couldn’t pick a better time the leaves are almost at their peak!

        • swanspirit says:

          Until you are able to go to her, perhaps you could help with local delivery services , there are so many these days . We have one here that will deliver from any restaurant , or even grocery shop for you for $14.00 Hope she is better soon!

    • votermom says:

      Prayers & healing thoughts coming her way.

    • DeniseVB says:

      Poor thing ! Healing thoughts for her speedy recovery 🙂

      • please insist she elevate and stay off that ankle. Those are fragile bones. I didn’t listen when I did that and since I had the walking cast which was pretty new at the time plus pain killers I didn’t slow down at all. Ended up making it all worse and its never healed correctly after being put in a hard cast as punishment by my doc for about 6 months. Nightmare for such a simple thing. Making sandwiches is walking/standing on that foot.

    • leslie says:

      I’m sorry for your daughter’s injury. Please share lildoggy4u’s story. my own daughter had something similar last year on her ankle. Staying off the foot and keeping it elevated was a difficult task for her, but she eventually gave in to better judgment. It meant all the difference to a good recovery. She is running and doing triathlons again…
      Good wishes to her. And to you . . . enjoy the fall colors and your daughter’s company.

    • votermom says:

      In this case I agree with her – sending troops to fight Ebola is crazy.

      • DeniseVB says:

        In related news, Obama will be sending 3,000 doctors and nurses to fight ISIS in Syria 😉

      • swanspirit says:

        What she says in this instance makes sense to me. I completely disagree with sending troops to fight ebola , for all of the reasons she listed . Call me crazy too , but I think obam’s motives are highly suspect here . Why not send medical people? Sending troops sends a very mixed message . No moratorium on flights , or passengers from ebola zones , but they need our troops to keep things under control?

          “I mean yaaah, Hello-ooo… I think we had this conversation in 1972, you know, before my Bat Mitzvah….I mean, Men can be feminists”.
          Wow, how well spoken is she?

          And in watching ^this^ I saw the future fashion plate FLOTUS wearing her “kiss of the spider woman” dress. The one that, at that time, made me wonder if she had just bled over the front of her frock. I also saw the “future lead from behind leader” of our nation looking stunned and scared (I know this was projection of my own feelings at the time). And everyday, I’m even more stunned and scared.

      Wait, I thought she liked Obama. Now she thinks Obama’s doing this elaborate conspiracy.?

    I was at the Northwestern/Wisconsin game yesterday and froze, but NU beat the 17th ranked Wisc. team 🙂 Then I skipped the party and came home so I could watch the playoff games, only to learn I had to listen to the games on the radio or on the internet. 😦 So I did. At one point, in the 9th, I drove up to the restaurant to pick up dinner and SF tied the game. So I sat in the car until the bottom of the 9th and asked them to “hurry so I could get back to the car to listen to the game”. I listened at home then, until I could not keep awake. So I struggled to get the station tuned into my very old bedroom radio and heard the rest of the game. I shut my eyes with the final out in the 18th inning.
    I thought about you, Klown, nearly all night. It was a very good sports day for my teams yesterday – both baseball and football.,

    This really cracked me up because this video is almost 3 years old and the libs are STILL saying all this 😀

      Yep it pretty much all still hold true. Perhaps we should start calling them the reruns or the retreads or something, LOL!

    One of the American Ebola survivors, Dr. Sacra, is back in the hospital with respiratory illness & conjunctivitis.

    This reminds me of an article I read that says we are not counting as Ebola fatalities people in West Africa who survive but die soon after from a different disease because their bodies have been so weakened by Ebola.

    • lyn says:

      Yeah, some people who have cancer survive the chemo but die from pneumonia.

      • 1539days says:

        I had a relative die from an aneurysm after chemo was done.

        If this guy in Texas dies, the US success rate will be down to 66%. IN Western Africa is it somewhere under 50%. The guy in the HAZMAT suit at the airport was on Hannity’s radio show. He said the CDC spent $17 million to “save” those aid workers.

  17. lyn says:

    Have there been any updates on all the possible Ebola people in the U.S.? I won’t be surprised if the press starts downplaying or hiding the spread of Ebola in America, or the administration starts claiming that patient privacy laws must be followed.

    • DeniseVB says:

      What did you go see?

      • leslie says:

        We ended up missing “Gone Girl” – all shows were sold out. We then tried to see “My Od Lady” – along with the hundreds of others who couldn’t get into the other movie. So we went to a café and caught up on everything and nothing for a few hours. (She’s still voting D – here in Illinois. I don’t understand it. You should see the horrible emails I’m getting from union members about this election!)

    Whatever happened to Cinie of Cinie’s World. Miss her.

  23. Six Oclock news just now in Miami. Hospital says patient here IS being treated for Ebola and a young child from Western Africa has just been admitted with Ebola symptoms. In both cases because of privacy policies, no information will be released without the family’s consent. No comment from the CDC has been made available.I can understand that for the young girl just admitted but a hospital is saying they are treating an Ebola patient currently. Thats not a statement a hospital would say cavalierly.

        She’s @vj44? She asks as she adjusts her tinfoil hat…….vj44 as in #44, as in the 44th POTUS. You know there have been rumors for years she’s the shadow POTUS. She even has her own SS detail. I assume she picked @vj44?

        • DeniseVB says:

          Good catch, it’s a verified account so I guess it’s the REAL Valjar. I guess she didn’t get the Sharpton related “news” before she tweeted her fangirl to @reval ?

          I think JarJar’s primary job is doing damage control for Michelle, who doesn’t seem to leave the WH without her. It’s no secret she introduced the happy couple back in Chicago. Voila, she’s in the White House.

  25. swanspirit says:

    DOVER, De. – Bayhealth Kent General says it has put a Liberian child in isolation as a precaution to the Ebola outbreak. The hospital posted a statement on its website Sunday evening. In that statement, Bayhealth Kent General says the child was admitted into the hospital October 4.

    The move to isolate the child came out what the hospital says was “an abundance of caution.” It says all CDC guidelines regarding specimen collection, transport, testing and submission for person under investigation for Ebola are being followed. The State of Delaware Office of Infectious Disease was notified of the admission. In turn, the CDC was notified.

    The child is past the 21 day maximum incubation period and it has been determined by the CDC that the likelihood of Ebola infection is extremely low. Since the likelihood is low, the CDC declined to test this child for Ebola.

    The hospital says it will continue to monitor the patient until the CDC and the infectious disease physician determine it is safe for the patient to be discharged from the hospital. As of Sunday night, the patient was symptom free.

    None of this makes sense . If she needs to be in isolation do the damned test !!

    • Lulu says:

      How much does the test cost? Is the CDC on the hook for all of these tests? Remember that the CDC blamed the hospital in Dallas for “not following” protocol after THAT patient lied to them (and everyone else) about being exposed. The Dallas hospital was attacked for being redneck, ignorant, and wanting black people to die even though it is in the middle of an enormous immigrant community in a huge multi-national city and it their ER that is used for medical care. In human interest media stories about the CDC team in Dallas they have been portrayed as brave (they are), understaffed, selected for their sensitivity (political correctness) and shown to be inexperienced (lead tracker is a pediatrician, never done a case before, very slow because he didn’t know where he was going but is very PC with African immigrants, knew nothing about Dallas and was surprised at how huge it is, etc) and did not coordinate with state and local health authorities who finally had to pull the trigger and make a quarantine because CDC policy since 2010 is not to quarantine. The CDC is telling health workers to exercise an abundance of caution but the CDC won’t do the blood test? There will be a House hearing next week which should be a lot of fun? Not. The Obama-ites in the CDC better decide on a policy by then or they will be used for election bait. Idiots.

  26. Lulu says:

    The Dallas county judge Clay Jenkins is crazy. He has been running around all over the Ebola site, hauling the quarantine family around, and then going home to his wife and nine year old daughter. He has also met with the media in his “Ebola” clothing and shoes. Someone snapped yesterday and filed a complaint against him with CPS (child welfare) for endangering his own child not to mention everyone else he has contact with. The county judge is not a judge in Texas but rather the head of the county commission which runs the county. Jenkins also wanted Dallas county to set up a center for all of the illegal immigrant children this summer in Dallas schools. The county commission and DISD told him “are you fucking crazy, no”. He has turned out to be a big Vile Prog and his political career is almost certainly over this November. Someone has to make him stop acting the fool so the state agency will have to do it.
