Giants Raise Cain In Game 7 Of NLCS Giants – 9 St. Louis – 0, And Yes They’re Going To The World Series.

Posted: October 27, 2012 in Uncategorized

 

Evening sports fans. I’m sure by now you’re aware that the San Francisco Giants have went beyond the odds, and have done something in the post season that no other MLB team has ever accomplished. They won a post season record seven straight games to win the NLCS. Richard Ewing here of ALLBAYAREASPORTS.COM In what was looked at as really the impossible, has become not only possible,  but has been done. The San Francisco Giants humble the St. Louis Cardinals with a stunning 9-0 beat down at AT&T Park in front of thousands of a cheering sea of orange and black.

I have to admit I should be ashamed of myself. I had lost faith when they were down 3-1 to the Cardinals, and for them to come back it just seemed impossible. I was covering them pretty closely at ALLBAYAREASPORTS.COM. And then as you probably know I’ve got bills to pay so it was off to work I go. After watching MLB Tonight on the MLB Network, and spotted coverage of the post season playoffs on ESPN. The Giants playing ability did what it did to all of us, made me pay attention, and to go to my blog at ALLBAYAREASPORTS.COM, start writing about them, and don’t stop. The Giants surge came in the third inning when they put together 4 runs and were ahead 4-0.

Because you show respect to your opponents, and we are talking about the defending World Champion St. Louis Cardinals, your thinking surely the Cardinals will respond. But no, it was quite the contrary. St. Louis had no answer for San Francisco’s pitching. The main reason why? Is because of a combined effort from Barry Zito, Ryan Vogelsong, and Matt Cain’s dominance from the mound. Last night it was Matt Cain. Yes Matt Cain. You know, the same Perfect Game Matt Cain. Cain kept the Cardinals scoreless for 5 2/3 innings. He had good relief pitching support from Affeldt, Casilla, Lopez, and then Romo shut down the Cardinals season. The Giants have changed the view of baseball’s aficionados by having the “I’m not quitting” attitude.

 

They did it against Cincinnati when they were down 2-0 in the NLDS. The Reds are at home now. They did it again against a great St. Louis team. After these last two situations, I don’t know about you, but if I’m the Tigers, I’d rather loose the first two games and do what the Giants did, come from behind and win. The Giants bats were wide awake and they were hungry. Hunter Pence hit a double that appeared to have hit off his bat 3 times after it shattered from impact. Marko Scutaro, who became San Francisco’s “Orange Badge Of Courage” player after being practically ran over in game 2 went 3 for 4 hitting. And really it was that type of attitude.

That “Were not giving up even if you hurt us.” attitude. That’s why Scutaro who finished hitting .500 in the post season gets the MVP nod of the National League. What was also significant is that both of these teams the Cardinals and Giants are teams that won the World Series in a two year span and met to compete for the World title. First time that’s happened in MLB history. It was 8-0 in the eighth inning when Brandon Belted a home run that was the dagger in St. Louis Cardinal’s heart. The rain continued to fall and Giants fans could care less. Their Giants had just turned the “Impossible” to “I’m Possible.” The World Series starts tomorrow and the San Francisco Giants have taught me a lesson, never give up.

So thank you San Francisco Giants for a great season. I’ll be writing about our San Francisco Giants. Because really they’ve giving me something to write about.
