Bottom of the third inning, runners on first and second, Sanchez up to bat against one of the most dominating postseason pitchers in recent memory. He hits a linedrive that looked to be just inches away from being caught by the Ranger's third basebman, and Edgar Renteria scores, proving that Cliff Lee is human after all.
After watching that hit, I couldn't help but be reminded of Willie McCovey's linedrive in game seven of the 1962 world series. If it had landed, the Giants could have been the world series champions over the New York Yankees. Alas, it was not meant to be. The ball landed in the glove of the second basemen, Yankees won.
I don't know about everyone else, but I think the linedrive that Sanchez hit to score Renteria was the biggest hit of the night. It proved that the Giants can score on Cliff Lee. Back in 1962, the Giants were robbed of what could have been their first World Series Title since moving to San Francisco. Today (yesterday by the time i finished writing this) the Ranger feel like they have been robbed. Their number one pitcher, who has been perfect in his postseason career, had fallen to the "quirky" and "free-swinging" Giants.
I think thats beautiful.
