There's a quiet confidence about Bochy. He's trying to downplay the unexpected position the Giants are in. "It's a 2-1 lead," he said. "That's what it is. We have a lot of baseball left. We're playing a great team and we've got to come out here and play our best." Nobody in the winners' den said it, but when you can beat Halladay and Hamels, take a 2-1 lead against the NL's best team and handcuff its offense, that's more than a good omen. It's how you win a pennant when you're not supposed to.
