On the Cusp of Destiny
Following a game that had some weird Halloween juju, it’s hard to believe this is really happening. Andres Torres hit a ball that caromed off first base for a double that was followed by an Aubrey Huff home run. Freddy Sanchez made some of the greatest defensive plays this postseason had to offer. Jeff Francoeur absolutely crushed a ball to straight away left field only to see it nestle safely into the waiting glove of Cody Ross. Andres Torres’ RBI-double took a friendly bounce off the wall back onto the field allowing Edgar Renteria to score from first. Buster Posey hits a pop-up to center-field for a home run. The 21 year-old Madison Bumgarner took and ball and shut out a monstrous offense in their home ballpark.
Whatever voodoo this team has possessed this postseason, it needs to last for just one more win.
One. More. Win. A team that had no business beating the Padres, Braves, and Phillies is on the cusp of the greatness. Appropriately enough, Cliff Lee is standing between the Giants and that ultimate goal of a World Series trophy and a parade down Market Street. It’s a safe bet that you can expect the same brand of weirdness to ensue tonight, so plan accordingly. There’s not much else to say for the time being. This has been a team that has defied expectations every step of the way and answered the doubters with rally thongs, beards, terrible hair, and sweet, torturous victory.
One more win. One more win. One more win.
