Game 41 Preview--Cubs at Giants--6:15

Game 41 Preview--Cubs at Giants--6:15
Sometimes you can’t predict baseball. And sometimes you can. Last night the better Jake was dominant, and the Cubs found their power stroke against the struggling Jake. The end result was the Cubs still have yet to lose to a team leading their division. This evening’s game is played a much more reasonable time thanks... Read more »

Game Preview 40--Cubs at Giants--9:15 PM
Ready or not, the Cubs are facing another test. The Cubs will look to avoid losing on consecutive days for the first time this season tonight. The club has looked flat. A slumping offense tends to make a team look flat, but it has been a frustrating series of games recently. Adding to the difficulty... Read more »

Going into today, there had been 35 teams that had a 3-0 lead in the World Series. 32 of them made it a sweep. And tonight, the San Francisco Giants made it 33. In the best game of the Series, the Giants took an early lead, fell behind, went ahead again, and won it in... Read more »

The Tigers were coming home, were having their best pitchers take the bump, and were having their opponent play out of their element in the 40 degrees weather. But none of that matters if you don’t hit. The Tigers didn’t hit and none of it mattered. The Giants became the first team since 1966 to... Read more »

Madison Bumgarner returned to being an elite pitcher, and the Tigers did just enough to help their opponent win (something they’ve been doing all year). Now the Giants now head to Motown with a 2-0 lead in the World Series thanks to their 2-0 win over Detroit last night. Unlike the 1st game and almost... Read more »

Squa-Doosh!!!! Giants 8 Tigers 3.
Pablo Sandoval joined Reggie Jackson, Albert Pujols, and Babe Ruth as the only players to hit 3 home runs in a World Series game as the Giants jumped all over Justin Verlander ( Kate Upton jokes go here….) and won the opening game of the fall classic 8-3.

Bye-Bye Redbirds, have you any wool? SF 9 Cards 0
Typically, you want your game 7′s to be tight knit affairs. Close games. Barn Burners. Games you can’t wait to talk about the next day and games you will argue about being one of the best of all times. But when the opponent is the Cardinals, you’ll gladly sacrifice all of that just to see... Read more »

If I live to ninety, I will never figure you out. Giants 6 Cards 1
There’s no better words to hear in sports than “Game 7″. Fortunately for all of us, we get to say those words on through the night. An Amped Giant’s team took advantage of a sputtering Chris Carpenter, knocking out 5 early runs. And Ryan Voglesong picked up where Barry Zito left off, tossing 7 strong... Read more »

Zito! Whoa oh, oh, oh, oh! Giants 5 Redbirds 0.

Zito! Whoa oh, oh, oh, oh! Giants 5 Redbirds 0.
Barry Zito, went Jesus Christ Superstar when the Giants needed it most. Zito, who was scratched in favor of Tim Lincecum for game 4, evoked memories of John Tudor and Jimmy Key as he went 7 2/3 scorless innings. Meanwhile, Unshaven mess Lance Lyn fell apart. After 3 strong that saw him strike out 5,... Read more »
