Oops, they did it again!


Giants comeback leaves them 1 win from the World Series

In the Giants’ first and only bad postseason start, Ryan Vogelsong coughed up a four-run hairball over three innings, then retreated to the clubhouse, where starters usually go to watch the rest of the game. The only odd thing was, Vogelsong refused to strip off his uniform.

“I love this time of year,” Vogelsong said. “It was a disappointment to me to not be out there and feel the energy for more than I was able to. I guess I wasn’t ready to let it go yet.”

Neither were the Giants, who refused to let a three-run deficit stop them from moving within one win of another pennant.


The Giants closed the gap to 4-3 the traditional way: a leadoff single by Joaquin Arias (pinch-hitting for Vogelsong) in the third and RBI singles by Buster Posey (one of his three RBIs) and Hunter Pence, all against starter Shelby Miller.

But the Cardinals, more specifically first baseman Matt Adams, threw away the game in the sixth after Juan Perez batted for Travis Ishikawa and walked, Crawford singled for his first hit of the series and Matt Duffy pinch-sacrificed.

Blanco, whose bunt led to the Randy Choate throwing error that won Game 3 for the Giants, hit a grounder to Adams, who was playing in. Adams backhanded the ball, turned and bounced his throw home.

Even a good throw might not have gotten Perez, whose oblique slide got him to the plate to tie the game 4-4. But Adams didn’t give catcher Tony Cruz a chance.

Joe Panik then hit another ball to Adams, who should have turned an inning-ending double play and kept the game tied. But after Adams stepped on first, he fired a wide throw to second in a bid to double up Blanco.

Crawford scored to give the Giants their first lead at 5-4.


Posey lined a two-out RBI single to left to make it 6-4, and the bullpen did the rest.

AT&T Park was rocking, the Cardinals were reeling, and I was staggering.

It was a very good night.

MadBum takes the mound in San Francisco tonight to try to nail down NLCS Game 5 and another trip to the World Series.

The Kansas City Royals are already going.


Klown is very happy.

    • The Klown says:

      The key to consistent success in baseball is a good farm system, including scouting, drafting and coaching. Trying to build a team via free agency is a good way to go broke without much to show for it.

      A quality GM is essential.

      • I agree with you. Building a team through free agency but your window to win shorter. Having a good farm system allows you to be a good team for several more years.

        Thanks for reading and hopefully you continue to read my stuff.


      • DandyTIger says:

        And of course the best farm team of all is the one for the Giants down the road from me. Go Flying Squirrels!

    what is going on in this country???
    If I remember my history, we left a country to gain religious freedom and millions came here for the same thing.
    when did that change?

    this is one of the saddest statements on the state of our country today that I have heard

  15. mothy6767 says:

    Watched the Ebola hearings after the opening statements(stump speeches) it was quite interesting. Dems it’s budget cuts that caused Ebola. Reps travel restrictions. CDC guy would not admit to having spoken with the Whitehouse. Nothing new except that at least one member of Congress is not aware of passports.

  16. foxyladi14 says:

    The CDC wasted their money and so had none for this crisis. 😡

      The University of Colorado announced today that it is capping the hours of student workers at 25/week to avoid incurring obligations under the ACA.

    • Mt.Laurel says:

      A news radio station in DC that has always been a very pro O, They usually follow the official how great things are and how things are improving and everything is just rosy. But today, in giving the unemployment summary, actually snarked that a lot of people have been out of work so long they are no longer on the roles an no one gives that information so the picture is not complete. They followed that with the jobs summary and snarked once more that even though jobs were created there is nothing that speaks to the quality of the jobs or even if they are true full time jobs or all part time and temporary.

  27. HELENK3 says:


    aside from taking away parental rights, has this dipshit figured out yet who is going to pay for the murder of someone’s grandchild? according to the backtrack bunch kids stay on their parent’s medical plan until they are 26. So is the parent responsible for payment for an act they did not give permission to do?

    • Lulu says:

      In watching the Obola press opportunity just now there is ample reason to worry. He zipped right through the issues in the US so he could get to the stuff he is really interested in. He will opine, bore, harp, and repeat his baloney talking points about the outbreak in Africa. He has repeated the same stuff over and over. The terrible outbreak in west Africa is now his new favorite thing. Ebola in the US not so much. Whatever he is responsible for, has power to work on, or to lead he has no interest. In Africa he has no power, responsibility, or means to make a big difference. Any work in west Africa will be around the edges with a lot of blah blah. It is essentially all blather, concern with hectoring and no action, and bullshit. It means nothing and has no any tangible benefits. He is the guy who never finishes any project so he can bloviate about the next big thing he is never going to do. He thinks this is going to save his “legacy”.

      • Somebody says:

        I think we have to stop being selfish. Perhaps Obama is a messiah, perhaps he has a higher calling, perhaps the dreams of his father are calling him home to his roots. Maybe this is his legacy. We need to let him go and realize his destiny. Let him go and be King!

        We can do this America, we let him go. It’s the least we can do for the continent of Africa!

      • Constance says:

        I’m sick of the “citizen of the world” bullshit coming from WA DC. I’m a taxpaying citizen of the USA, unfortunately Obama is the President of the USA. I want to know what is Obama going to do about stopping Ebola here. I care almost as much about the rest of the world as they care about us. It will be a f’ing miracle if no one else gets sick in the USA. And since I’m not particularly religious and am not a Prog I don’t believe in miracles.

    sometimes I really do think this country has turned into the twilight zone.
    complaints about flying the American Flag
    tell 14 year old go ahead have an abortion and do not tell your parents
    get groped at an airport
    forget the government they have turned into a waste of space, time and money

    I am glad that the citizens in this town stood up and said HELL NO

    So I’m all packed for a cruise that I have no word about where our destination is. My granddaughter broke a lamp. It fell on her brother’s bed and caught it on fire. Everyone is fine and the damage isn’t too bad. My daughter and her family are on their way to spend the night here while the smoke clears. They haven’t had dinner so we’re ordering Chinese take out. I’ll be out front waiting for the limo service to the docks. I dare not drive in my self. lol
