There are walkoff wins. Then there is walkoff craziness, which happened at AT&T Park on Monday night.
With Brandon Belt on first base and two outs in the ninth inning of a scoreless game, Hunter Pence dragged his achy hamstring to home plate, hit a high fly to right and jogged to first as everyone inside the yard starting thinking “10th inning.”
But it ended there. Right fielder Matt Kemp could not get under the ball, which must have swirled in the wind. As it eluded his dive and fell to the turf, Belt scored easily to give the Giants their second straight 1-0 victory.
You might think that nine innings of scoreless baseball would be boring, but you’d be wrong.
